Re: Food

:shock: Wow. I know my way around a kitchen, but I only do simple stuff. I would never even consider attempting something so fancy. And by the time I'm done making the food, I certainly don't have the patience required to plate it so elegantly and offer up such a nice presentation. I'm very impresse...

Don't forget to set the MANPATH variable for the documentation, too.

Re: Using fsn on an Indigo2

For what it's worth, the README for fsn says: Fsn requires Z-buffering and RGB support. You must be running IRIX release 4.0.1 or greater. Those are some pretty low requirements. Later in the file, there's a warning that some things may not work so well on an Indigo. Your Indigo2 should be much more...

Re: Sun Blade 2500 Bellerophon multicard

Well, I'll admit I've never heard of a "Bellerophon multicard". My curiosity got the better of me, and a Google search turned up only one on-topic reference. According to this blog , it's a SunPCi III card. Now, that's something I have heard of! If you search for it by that name, you'll fi...

Re: AT/370

Restoration project basically complete now. Finally . It only took the best part of a decade. Considering how rare the AT/370 is, you should be proud of yourself for completing it at all! As others have said, the machine is beautiful and looks practically brand new. It's rare hardware, it runs, and...

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.

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.
