Re: stupid PA-RISC laptop tricks

Allegedly there is a SPARC version indeed, i used it a couple of times back then and it was awful :P I've got the SPARC version of IE here, although I've never actually gotten it to run. (That was possibly just a corrupted download.) I view it as a novelty more than anything actually useful. From w...

Re: Debian 7.11 sparc: Dual Creator 3D configuration ?

Well, since nobody's offered any better advice, here's my two cents worth! To get a dual-head setup working correctly, you'll absolutely need to create an xorg.conf file in /etc/X11. Here are some bits from my own dual-head system (although it's an Intel-based one) with relevant info from your log f...

Re: Perl CPAN failing to install modules

Did you do a 'clean' in the CPAN shell after setting the shell environment variables and before attempting to rebuild? In your first post you showed the full output from your CPAN shell, and that was great. Can you post the new/current output (after doing the 'clean'). It's hard to guess what might ...

Re: Turning your back on windows

I have though found two things, which are not massive, and I will look into just to increase the desktop experience. 1/ They enjoyed the screen saver on Windows that displayed a slide show of their old pictures. Plain old xscreensaver can do that. https://www.jwz.org/xscreensaver/faq.html#slideshow

Re: Perl CPAN failing to install modules

I can't really answer the question about removing old modules, but I will point out that they're usually installed in versioned directories under /usr/nekoware/lib/perl5 so maybe you can just move the 5.6 directory out of the way and leave the 5.24 directory in place. As far as building new ones is ...

Re: Perl CPAN failing to install modules

The first error I see in your quoted output is about the compiler not finding openssl/err.h. That results in a failure to compile the Net::SSLeay Perl module. That, in turn, leads to a cascade of failures of other things. So, to start, you need to figure out if you have openssl/err.h installed at al...

The zx2000 workstation might be of interest to you. That's got the zx1 chipset with Itanium CPUs in a chassis very similar (or identical?) to the C8000. It's as close to "C8000 with Itanium" as you can get.

Re: PayPal Donation Link Added (plugin requires Prosilver theme)

Donations have been stuck at 500 dead p's for a while now, come on guys let's rally 'round the flag! 8-) I suspect that's just the donation counter that's stuck, not the actual donations themselves! Several people have donated since then, and it's still saying $500. I just hope that's not a sign th...

Re: Help changing Linux KDE mouse cursor shape

I should also add that the xcursorgen utility (in the x11-apps package) could be useful, especially for creating animated cursors. Its man page has plenty of good info.

Re: Archaeological dig: old Indys from Acclaim Entertainment

That's an impressive selection of hardware and software you have there. But what impresses me most is the depth of the research you've done on these machines and the companies that used to own them. Great job tracking down all that history!

Re: Help changing Linux KDE mouse cursor shape

First off, AFAICT, cursors are handled by X11 directly rather than KDE or any other desktop. So Googling for "X11 cursor" might be more useful than "KDE cursor". That said: 1) X11 cursors are stored in their own, unique format. Fortunately, GIMP does support both opening and savi...

Re: Fibre Channel Switches

A couple of points to add to what jan-jaap already said: The fibre channel switches I've seen are backwards compatible for two generations. So a 4Gbps unit can be expected to support 2Gbps and 1Gbps, but an 8Gbps switch may not support 1Gbps (which is what the T3 runs at, IIRC). With a SAN setup, yo...

Re: Using Nekochan repository and other misc inquiry.

I added the lines to the script tonight. It kicks out this when listing. Intuition 22# nekopkg.sh list Available packages: <body <center><h1>301 <head><title>301 <hr><center>nginx/1.11.0</center> <html> </body> </html> Does this look right? Seems like some formatting issue? "301" is the H...

Re: Using Nekochan repository and other misc inquiry.

It looks like the script is using an old, non-existent mirror. Open the script in your favourite text editor, and find the two lines that read: # Nekoware mirror set REPO=http://nekoware.miniarpa.net/current Change the second one to: set REPO=http://nekoware.dustytech.net/current Then re-run the scr...

I'll try to fill in some of the gaps Trippynet left, until somebody comes along with a more authoritative post than mine. 1) See the wiki page Nekopkg download dependencies for more info on some scripts that might do what you want. Personally, I find it works well enough to manually download what I ...
