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

@Duck - Sure, why not. The more the merrier. Archiver 0.4 is the current state of the code. Setup some source repository thing, upload 0.4 and have at it. Of course we'll still have to send Vishnu tarballs on tape every couple of months... :twisted: I do think it should be a system that we can use n...

Has anybody tried building FFmpeg recently?

I fired up redbox before and tried building various recent and (much) older FFmpeg versions, to no avail.

Anybody have some topical hints and tips on the matter?

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

Update. Archiver 0.4. - large tarball bug squashed (hopefully) by making App::cb_cli_output() callback much simpler and thus return much faster. - added a progress bar dialog for extraction. - changed to foetz's Makefile A bunch of UI bugs still remain, hope to deal with those in 0.5. If you have ti...

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

Spent some more time reading about stuff in the world of C++. Turns out that the whole VkSubProcess thing is an implementation of the Singleton OOP design pattern. The static "create()" fn and the protected constructor are typical of that pattern. Who knew. Anyhow, it gives us the followin...

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

Morning All, @duck - welcome to the party :) Yeah, it uses GNU tar for the moment. One of the things I have on my TODO list is to make Archiver tar 'agnostic'. @foetz - thanks for seeing to the makefile. I just copied it from my 'template' with all the extra libs setup. Was going to clean it up for ...

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

What I find strange is that it gives you errors at all. There really isn;t anything spectacularly dicey going on in the Motif stuff. It's really very straight forward. Oh well, in my experience a nice clean reinstall every couple of years is generally a good thing :)

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

Just to make sure we don't get lost in the IRIX motif 1.x/2.x toggle script thing, I checked this way: #include <iostream> using namespace std; #include <Xm/Xm.h> int main(int argc, char *argv[]) { cout << XmVERSION_STRING << endl; } Gives me: @(#)OSF/Motif Version 1.2.4

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

Hey Vishnu - nice of you to look into the sources, much appreciated :) Please find attached a tarball with my cleaned-up sources. I've done some more experiments into the tarball bug. It seems that the outputCallback isn't not returning quick enough because it needs to tokenise the incoming output b...

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

Hey Vishnu, Sorry to hear my code blows up on you. V strange. I tried it on 6.5.30 on both the Fuel and the O2 where it's being written. The O2 was reinstalled about 6 months ago. Started with 6.5.7 and then upgraded it to 6.5.30 with all the patches I could lay my hands on. Took the better part of ...

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

More WIP: Archiver 0.2. The sources compile cleanly but there's a bunch of UI bugs and other issues. Most importantly, large tarballs still wreak havoc. That said, Archiver 0.2 allows you to create fresh tarballs. Sometimes. Yay! Just drag a directory from fm to the 'source' droppocket on Archiver's...

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

1 tab = 4 spaces FTW! :D Meanwhile, I've moved along quite nicely into 0.2. Unfortunately, there's a horrible bug in the outputCallback/exitCallback eventhandlers when extracting a large tarball which causes the UI to never get populated and hanging archiver. 'killall -9 archiver' is the solution fo...

Archiver 0.1 - IRIX/IMD GUI for tar.

Dear all, Since forever I've felt that IMD could do a better job of dealing with tarballs and other compressed files. Just dumping a filelist to a winterm is a little underwhelming. So, please find attached my first stab at a ViewKit/Motif/IMD/fm GUI for tar called 'Archiver'. Archiver 0.1 doesn't d...

Re: Having trouble understanding the man page for VkSubProcess

9000 USD? Good grief. I've been looking into the IRIX header of VkSubProcess. The constructor of VkSubProcessRep is a protected member which seems to be a dead giveaway that it's meant to be used in some inherited/overloaded way. VkSubProcess itself is just typedeffed off of this reference-counted a...
