Re: LDAP authentication

I set it up on my Octane Things to keep in mind: You will need to have a local slave ldap server (openldap) if you want to use tls, and you cannot use clogin with pam (you're stuck with the ugly xdm login or something third-party). I suspect changing passwords (EXOP) won't work, but I don't remember...

Re: Archiver 0.1 - IRIX/IMD GUI for tar.

I sure hope I didn't curb development because having a repo with a slow client acts as a retarder to development?

[It's a let's encrypt certificate (I'm cheap) and that might be the issue? Could be, but i can curl https://helloworld.letsencrypt.org/ but not the mercurial repo via https.

I don't have any myself, but I understand the Teac drives that SGI used have a plastic cog that tends to break/fall off.

Re: shell script: userfriendly.org comic strip viewer

Hmm, well... I don't know that I agree that you should teach antipatterns like using awk for only splitting lines just to keep it simple. I feel like I've seen too much of when people get taught one thing once and then goes on to blindly use it everywhere. I'd argue that my more complex (not really)...

I realize this is a throwaway script, but I can't help it... awk is more than { print $1 }. Scrape the URL from userfriendly's ancient markup: ... HTML=$(mktemp) wget -q -O $HTML $URL # URL is defined from user input SRC=$(awk '/ALT="Strip for/ { match($0, /src="[^"]*"/); url=sub...

Re: New O2 owner. It is so cute!

It can't do that on its own; it needs sash to read EFS or XFS. This is similar to second-stage boot loaders for SunOS and other unix systems. Interesting. The command that I was using is now making more sense: boot -f dksc(0,4,8)sashARCS dksc(0,4,7)stand/fx.ARCS --x So the SASH is sitting somewhere...

Re: Archiver 0.1 - IRIX/IMD GUI for tar.

I set up a mercurial repository (because I really like hg), and it should work on IRIX if you have python2.7. I have successfully built python3 so it should be just fine, though possibly a bit slow.

Re: Archiver 0.1 - IRIX/IMD GUI for tar.

So I'm wondering, jimmer, would you be open to collaborative hacking(mercurial / git repo) or is this project just for you? I can perfectly understand the latter :-)

Re: Fixing V6/V8 glitch fx

I am pretty sure VFC is not installed by default, it's on the foundation2 CD of the base 6.5 set (with at least an update in the 6.5.29 overlays with newer vfs files no doubt) I keep all my sgi installation files on NFS, to avoid wrist injury and insanity from swapping CDs, wich is pretty convenient...
