Re: Digital Unix Alpha Software Product Library - download now!

that's not a good idea because if extracted on windows the file permissions as well as upper/lower case get lost. also windows can't handle situations when the only difference between 2 files is the case. the latter btw causes problems with osx, too. at least with the default filesystem settings. un...

Re: looking for C++ compiler version 6.5 or 7.1

Re: Resizing AdvFS partitions on Tru64

on a second thought it might be easier to install it again. resizing is tricky and i don't remember whether having a combined lv is supported for the root volume.
the installer requires multiple partitions but you can create the partitions yourself and by that define the size.

it has always been like that. only a small percentage of all registered users are actually active which by the way goes for most forums.

as long as the sale happens, where's the problem?
that'd only be a concern if they start trashing their stuff.

Re: How frequently you use your SGI (in 2017)?

it completely depends on what i do. for most graphics stuff and all kinds of development (except for cuda for example) they're my first choice. admin tasks anyway because for that ssh is usually enough.
however, for all audio things and webdev (frontend) i fall back to osx.

Re: 6.2 / 5.3 packages

You can confirm is not easy? Or if you give me the instruction (source and string) I try to compile myself ;-) i can't confirm either way because i never tried. i keep these archives to the essentials mostly so an emulator wouldn't qualify. My r4400 250mhz have 6.2.... is a good idea upgrade to 6.5...

Re: 6.2 / 5.3 packages

i'm afraid not. and i'm not sure that'd be fun on machines running 6.2 or even 5.3 either.
