Re: Gorgeous Gold-Plated Macbook Pro

Less of a case of disagreement than a case of YMMV, I suspect. Yeah just being dramatic :-). Here's a pic of the pitting pitting-1.jpg @fu: I remember being quite upset at the first dent in my 12" PB. Now there are so many of them, I kind of see them as badges of honor! It's just a sign of a w...

Re: Gorgeous Gold-Plated Macbook Pro

I have to disagree with all. My lovely PowerBook does indeed have black pitting on the palmrests, really wish it didn't as it looks awful. Apart from that it is without dents and only has 1 minor scratch, not bad for something that gets used everyday. Can anyone confirm that the special alcohol solu...

Re: name your SGI?

It usually takes me ages to come up with a machine name, and even then they aren't very good.

Re: IRIX PCI Driver Example

there also was a fair amount of stuff at the old DT website , which seems lost to antiquity. Nooooooo. After some creative use of Wayback Machine it looks like you were right. It has the links to the code I was after but they don't have a cached version of it. :cry: Why SGI would u take stuff like ...

Re: IRIX PCI Driver Example

GCC :lol: I'm using MIPSPro 7.3, a bit old but thats all I have at the moment. As for the CD, at the bottom of page here they mention The Developer's Toolkit CD-ROM contains a sample PCI device driver for the Barco Chameleon Color Converter. Look in the toolbox/hardware/PCI/barco directory. So I'm n...

Re: IRIX PCI Driver Example

Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the Developer's Toolkit CD-ROM? Apparently there is another example of a PCI device driver for the Barco Chameleon Color Converter under toolbox/hardware/PCI/barco directory. Something that actually writes/reads from a PCI device would be nice, as the examp...

Re: Through the Looking Glass

While its not for everyone, I strongly encourage becoming a developer over being an end-user. The mountain is often not as high as it seems from the valley, and the air up there is so much cleaner. It's great to hear that sort of attitude, I know that I've been put off before by projects that just ...

Re: IRIX PCI Driver Example

That would be brilliant if you could post that squeen or at least certain snippets of the code.

I've had a look at the pciba stuff but for my purposes at the moment this stuff has to be in-kernel.

Look forward to reading your code.

Re: IRIX PCI Driver Example

Thanks Regan :D

I've been banging my head against it for a while so I should probably leave it and come back to it tomorrow with fresh eyes.
On the upside I know heaps more about IRIX and device drivers than I did before.

IRIX PCI Driver Example

Does anyone on Nekochan have experience or code that uses pciio_pio_read() functions to read/write PCI register values for a device driver? Probably a long shot but if there is noone around here with the info then I don't know where else to ask. I've been looking through the SGI Device Driver docs a...

Re: What next?

Congrats, I made the jump to Apple a few years ago and can't imagine using anything else.

A few apps no-one else has mentioned:

- Adium for IM
- MacPorts for all the open source software.
- Emacs a must have http://emacs-app.sourceforge.net/
- Apple Developer Tools

Enjoy :D
