Re: MaXX is back!

Ahh Thanks Vishnu :) Wasn't MaXXX working on a new build? Did he give those files out for testing? Indeed he did say he was working on a new build, and then he promptly disappeared. Again... :roll: I saw a post out of MaXX Interactive Desktop on Facebook recently - so assuming that he's running tha...

But x86-only is sad. I only have PPC Linux desktops, and I have CDE on Debian on PPC.
I will get some x86 machine.

That is correct. His agreement with SGI only allows for Linux on Intel platforms.

Re: MaXX is back!

It's not dead yet!

Also - I had it working on Slackware 14.1, Ubuntu 15.10 (16.04 does not work at all for me), CentOS 7, and Fedora 22 (I know 24 does not work, don't remember if 23 does or does not). I've been running CDE on my Ubuntu box in the meantime....

Re: Does anyone have a copy of Maxx desktop?

I've got binaries from 2001 and 2008, that I ran under Slackware 8 and Slackware 12, haven't tried to run them in a looooong time. Eric never released the source code, the license he had from SGI wouldn't permit it, but for a while there he was renegotiating the license to remove that restriction. ...

Re: Does anyone have a copy of Maxx desktop?

The Maxx website is down and has been for a while, and I can't find a copy. Does anyone have it? Preferably I would like source code, but binaries are fine as well. I have got 24.09.2016 08:40 <DIR> . 24.09.2016 08:40 <DIR> .. 18.04.2015 02:22 <DIR> DEBIAN 18.04.2015 02:22 <DIR> FEDORA 21.02.2014 0...

Re: MaXX is back!

I might have a copy, but I make no promises. And I wouldn't mind having a copy of the file manager to use with it.

Re: How do you get your SGI machines?

All of the ones I have came from a Ham Radio festival (that is no longer held). The O2 that I purchased never powered on, and has sat in my room ever since. I do not remember what I spent on it. The Octanes I got both for $30 so that the owner didn't have to carry them back to the car. I miss the on...

Re: What Apple hardware do we have?

I got off the Apple treadmill shortly after the Intel transition. I only have two Macintels, but this house is full of Old and New World Power Macs that live and do useful work. I buy Apple hardware when the time feels right, but always am behind the curve. In 2005 I replaced a PowerMacintosh 6500 ...

Re: Would it be a good idea to pick up an SGI for programming?

As someone who used to run Gentoo on an Octane (back 2007-2009), I wouldn't bother. For graphically related work, there is no point in running Linux on MIPS, it just lacks the horsepower to handle the bloatware that is MATE. If you have the modeling software for IRIX, then it's worth getting for doi...

Re: MaXX pre release - need Linux testers

I can do some testing for you (seems like everyone is jumping on Fedora, but I am also running Ubuntu (both 14.04 LTS and 15.10, Slackware, and I can put up a RHEL install) - what all do you want us to look at?
