ipmitool for IRIX

I got ipmitool compiled for IRIX (mips4, gcc, nekoware installed.. esp for its use of ncurses). I did try searching to see if this was already compiled by someone but I did not find anything. There were a few obvious mods to source, but the bigger mod was replacing BSWAP_32 (non-existent on IRIX) wi...

Regarding running apps like firefox/chrome remotely to IRIX: WINDOWS: SeamlessRDP to just deliver a remote windows app that does not come with the clutter of a windows desktop-in-a-window... more natural looking with the IRIX desktop. Need to place seamlessrdp on the windows system somewhere: (note:...

Re: Quieting the Octane. Maintain thermal control

I recently purchased: Slipstream120 Scythe model SY1225SL12SH 12v, 0.53A Zalman 92mm plus fan ZM-F2 Plus (SF) and a ShicoH ICFAN 0610-12L (delivered from china I think) to replace the small/thin front fan. However, they are still in boxes. I am worried to even use them as some threads here indicated...

Vega Strike for irix

Vega Strike supposedly compiled/worked on IRIX at one point in time.
Anyone have any binaries around?

Re: Oolite, Dangerous...

Before I spend days and nights attempting a fresh compile.. does anyone have a copy of
oolite-1.65-installer-IRIX6.5.tar.gz
around that was compiled over a decade ago?
We are losing our precious IRIX software base to time!

Re: Discreet Effect

Solutions to your pitfalls would be great to hear! Success stories after fumbling around is always a good read .. and its education for all ;) I tried installing that in the past and the installer was not working out of box (on 6.5.29) so I put it on the backburner. Maybe some new SGI users may want...

mips3 snes9x (gcc)

Attached is a compiled snes9x for mips3 using GCC and nekoware's mips3 tardists. I tried to find a copy in the wild.. no luck but maybe I did not look hard enough. Works on a 150mhz R4k Indy (I'm using a sd2scsi card.. so disk IO is slower for me and its possible could cause some slowdowns.. not sur...

My attempts to compile with MIPSPro did not seem to work well on my Indy. GCC, esp v3, may not be super optimized on the platform.
Depending on how far you get with performance, I can see about creating a tardist for this.

Re: Mips3 E-Uae

compiled with GCC (mips3) it seems to load up the GUI/menu now. but it took awhile. This is on a 150mhz Indigo-without-the-go.
I started a Sword of Sodan game.. its a slide show with music very choppy.

Maybe more tweaks to settings could make it better....

I took the orig tardist (mips4) author's patch that is avail inside the tardist.. but it would not run... well it just sat there not doing anything, no GUI menu showed up either. T...

Re: Onyx2 Deskside, 4x400MHz R12K, IR3, 8GB RAM

Tell the wife why your Onyx2 runs for days or weeks consuming electricity for no reason:
From the Onyx2 Owners Guide page 95 http://www.irix7.com/techpubs/007-3454-004.pdf

"Do not power off the system frequently; leave it running over nights and weekends,
if possible."

The manual said so!
