Re: renaming toolchest

The Toolchest is a proper X application and uses X resources for strings. Just set Toolchest.title before launching, e.g. echo "Toolchest.title: Chest Tool" >> .Sgiresources (If you're testing out, remember that the resources aren't loaded from file until the next login or loaded via xrdb)...

Re: Quake II questions on O2

You don't need to change any X resources, just put set _windowed_mouse "1" into your baseq2/config.cfg and it'll automatically grab your mouse pointer.

Re: For Swedish members, primarily

I'm not Swedish, but I've been to Sergel's Torg. It's a "sunken" plaza with white triangles on the ground, quite famous.

Re: tape tar help needed.

The O flag tells tar to expect old style archives (this is true for IRIX and BSD tar, keep in mind that one tar is not always like another, so YMMV), what's more using the verbose flag would (if it worked) put extracted pathnames interspersed with the data you're extracting, not particularily useful...

Re: PS/2 to USB converter

Another angle is that if your "PS/2" keyboard is new enough, it will include the required hardware for USB operation directly. The common "PS/2 to USB adapter" amounts to just a few wires, nothing more fancy, but it won't work if your keyboard is "too old". This. I spe...
