Re: extracting driver from Solly 10

I did a quick google for that card and opensolaris. Found some links to the Nextenta site (Ubuntu/Solaris bastard progeny) Supposdly this driver should be provided by the SUNWcadp package in Solaris http://www.nexenta.org/os/FAQ#head-57c10728d34a3a6551ba06167034804c236f7cc9 http://docs.lucidinteract...

Re: extracting driver from Solly 10

Probably the difference between CDDL (OpenSolaris) and the licensing scheme Solaris 10 uses. Would Adaptec have to check their driver source for compliance against this licensing scheme? Well I thought the whole point of the CDDL was it allowed Sun to redistruibute binary drivers/components as the ...

Re: OpenOffice.org 1.0.3.1 for IRIX

Btw, I found a mirror: I'm pretty sure it's on local (Nekochan) FTP as well. Na, its not listed on the ftp. Btw, I've just had a look and I'm sure one can compile OpenOffice.org 2.4.1 by using --without-java which should work around the Java issue. Perhaps but from what i recall hearing it use to t...

Re: Irix on PC was a way to go ...

Ian is there any details available about the proposed Brodacom (Banana2K) machine? Other then what you've mentioned I mean. That's all I know, but just in case you've misread what I said, the system was ditched; it's dead, gone. Management killed it. I first heard about it more than 2.5 years ago, ...

Re: any questions

I see that the recent release of Open64 includes a MIPS backend prototype, seems to be written by Chinese involved in Godson/Loongson. The release notes are quite thin though: http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=629880&group_id=34861 I noticed that too. I'm about to give it ...

Re: any questions

I certainly don't see why a number of simple actions couldn't be done, like making all the compilers and dev tools totally free. Well, for one thing the the MIPSpro C++ compiler front end is based on the Edison Design Group (EDG) C++ Front End. I wouldn't be surprised if they were paying a royalty ...

Re: Dell Precision machines ...?

I was playing around with the Dell and Apple product configurators. I thought it was kinda funny that basically the same specs for a Dell Precision T5400 and a Mac Pro had a 4,300 euro price difference! (ex. sales tax/shipping -- prices on Irish Dell/Apple websites) 2 x Core 2 Quads @ 3GHz 32 GB Ram...

Actually, G5- if all, is an "embedded" chip, takes 8 watt to operate. Huh, so why did Apple go through all the trouble of watercooling the dual G5 2.5 Ghz under my desk? :-) I think he got confused with what was know as the "Motorola G5" aka PowerPc 8500 http://www.theregister.c...

Actually, a larger userbase of PowerPC are game consoles which all sell dramatically more units than Apple, including the Microsoft X-Box which uses PowerPC instead of Intel in the new version and (like many other things) sells at least as well as Apple. Indeed all three of the more recent generati...
