Re: Odd little Nekoware issues

Hmm! There's a load of libFLAC files there, such as libFLAC.a along with .so, .so.9 and .so.9.0, but sure enough no .so.5. I've checked the options in the Nekoware libFLAC package and there doesn't seem to be libFLAC.so.5 in there. Not sure what the numbers mean to be perfectly honest, but it's cert...

Re: Odd little Nekoware issues

Yes, swmgr made sure of that. Libtiff, flac, curl etc. are all installed. Might drill into them when I'm back home on my O2 to see exactly which components of them were installed...

Re: Odd little Nekoware issues

Thanks for the responses. To clarify, it's not just an issue with XMMS, it affects various programs and libraries. The XMMS one was just an example (especially as I was able to change its behaviour depending on how I launched it). I've downloaded and run the fixpath script and have confirmed that th...

Re: Why do you collect SGI kit?

As I've mentioned in another thread, I was introduced to SGI machines at Teeside University's Virtual Reality centre. I marvelled over how sleek they looked and the kind of stuff they could do. They also had a couple of labs of Indys (and later O2s). Around 2001, one of the guys from the VR centre I...

Odd little Nekoware issues

I'm having issues with certain Nekoware apps failing to find certain libraries when run. Obviously these libraries are installed (swmgr makes sure of that). For example, if I run XMMS from the Icon Catalogue, I get the following error in the console: 1224:/usr/lib/desktop/iconcatalog/pages/C/MediaTo...

Re: Music/MP3 player

Must admit that as someone that grew up originally with Winamp on the PC, XMMS is my audio player of choice (with a skin to make it look like classic Winamp). Happily handles MP3s, VBR files, OGGs, etc.Seems relatively light on resources as my little O2 can easily play MP3s with only 5% or so CPU ne...

Re: Login scripts?

have a look at ~/.sgisession Well, you definitely get half a coconut! The call to my wallpaper randomiser script was in there, however I'd already renamed the script to try and stop it from killing my wallpaper. Still! That's that corrected and another file I've learnt about, thanks! After more dig...

Login scripts?

Having a bit of a perplexing issue with my O2. Many years ago, I used to apply background images to it using "bgpaste" (this was before IRIX 6.5.22). I even set up a series of shortcuts in the Toolchest to apply different ones and experimented with auto-applying images at login (never did ...

Re: Screen resolution for an O2

Well, after a while of using the O2 at 1920x1200, I've come to the conclusion that there were a few more issues than expected. Specifically, low-to-moderate amount of corruption and pixel-popping at the left hand side from time to time, occasional lines across bits of the screen - particularly where...

So, file shares then

So, I want a way to allow my little O2 to easily access file shares from my Windows 7 machine. In years gone by, I had an academic license for Sharity 2 and this worked well on my old Indy and on my O2. However since then, my license for Sharity has long since gone AWOL. What I've tried so far: Unin...

Re: What do you use your SGI for?

It's a turntable (I've got a nice collection of modern and old vinyls). The supposed 7" vinyl you see is actually from a set of about 4" coffee coasters designed to look like vinyls (not playable unfortunately). O2 wise, I've been having a few problems getting Sharity 3 to work (might have...

Re: What do you use your SGI for?

Well as promised, here's a couple of pictures of my (rather modest) setup. The O2 (after being modded) is quiet enough to sit on my desk and only makes a faintly audible hum. Also out of sight are a Mac Mini (which via bridged connections and a switch is providing wireless Internet access to my PC a...

Re: What do you use your SGI for?

I'll have to dust off my digital camera. Note that it's just a rather messy desk with an O2 & granite keyboard sitting next to a 27" TFT with a PC under the desk. Nothing special, although the O2 is in pretty immaculate physical condition, despite spending many years in a University student...

Re: What do you use your SGI for?

I use my O2 purely for experimentation at the moment, and because I have a soft spot for it. Recently, I've dusted it off and have been enjoying trying to get it to do things it never used to do, like run quietly, run a modern monitor, play MP3s and that sort of thing. Nekochan has been immensely us...

Re: Dillo3

Has there been any further success with this? I'm still searching for a browser which runs at a useable speed on my little old O2. Firefox is too slow, Firebird is both fairly slow and too old, Netscape is way too old and SeaMonkey is probably the best of a bad bunch, but even that grinds when loadi...
