Re: Current State of Nekoware / otherware

I'm around to help test... For the past few months, I fully use an SGI for day to day work, and after work. I'm already forgetting how to use Windows and/or MacOSX and their apps. The macs and PCs are turned off, save a few VMs to RDP into for some specific webbrowsing or using Office tools/outlook ...

Re: Open Transport Tycon Deluxe - openTTD for IRIX

Syntax error on line 133 of Makefile for OpenTransport Tycoon is from ./configure calling /sbin/make instead of gmake. To get around it (unless someone else knows a more elegant way) move /sbin/make binary out of the way and create a symlink in its orig place to /usr/nekoware/bin/gmake. Restore the ...

Re: Basilisk and Irix

Regarding .Xdefaults and applicationDepth settings.. My attempts to see an 8bit window on a 24bit X session failed. I tested with 'winterm' and 'xeyes', as well as BasiliskII. I ensured my .Xdefaults file actually worked with something... even setting every application: *geometry: +0+910 or a specif...

To set it to 8bit, so Basilisk can run at 256 colors: /usr/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers :0 secure /usr/bin/X11/X -bs -nobitscale -c -solidroot sgilightblue -cursorFG red -cursorBG white -pseudomap 4sight To res...
