Re: Cosmo Worlds file import question

Has anybody else ever tried out Cosmo Worlds? What am I missing? Is this with the free version only? I remeber Cosmo Worlds used to work even with the latest IRIX versions. However, Cosmo Worlds relies on some files of the Cosmo Player package when trying to import VRML files, and I remember that i...

My application is *still* being processed. I got an email from devprogram@sgi.com saying my Dev Online expires soon and a URL to renew it. So... the URl points to the new member enrollment form, which I can't use, because I'm an existing member. The same happens to me, but it was the same also last...

I once had freeware CUPS working pretty well and used xpp as the GUI. [snip] What I did was: - move the IRIX printing files mv /usr/bin/lp /usr/bin/lp.old mv /usr/bin/lpstat /usr/bin/lpstat.old - link the CUPS printing files ln -s /usr/freeware/bin/lp /usr/bin/lp ln -s /usr/freeware/bin/lpstat /usr...

my experience is that the built-in terminator of a zip drive is problematic on an sgi. my former indigo2 box had some issues with it and the solution was to disable the termination and stick a quality active terminator onto it. Confirmed. I had the same problem (and I applied the same fix) when I u...

Nope. Look up TBC, or "time-based controller" in google groups. Time Base Corrector ... I've tried to get my hands on one of them here in Spain, without luck. Of course, I don't want to spend a fortune for a professional equipment, I need it only for converting some old VHS and Hi-8 tapes I have. I...

I wouldn't might a little printer AND email notififaction icon tucked in somewhere, I'll put it on the TODO list. Although I have no idea how to check the printer status.

Aight, revise that question completely: Can anyone confirm if inst can access dist directories via ftp, if so, can it do it with authentication (user / pass)? What kind of call do I do? Not sure about FTP, but HTTP should be supported at least in swmgr. But you will have to setup your server so tha...

My opinion: it's going to be a pretty hard task. I know marginally GTK 1.x, I don't even consider GTK 2.x as it crawls on my R5K 200M O2, and when a GUI crawls on a 200 MHz processor just to pop up a menu, it means that is just a piece of stinking crap code. Now, I have already seen this same movie ...

You have to export the variable. See my post in the other related thread.

Nothing, oddly enough. Even though when I type set the variable is there. Exactly this seems to be the problem: you say "set", and I suppose that you are using some variations of csh. In such case, what you are really setting is a local variable (local to the shell), not an environment variable. Tr...

Oh how I wish that were true. It's taken SGI the best part of a year to throw together this rather sad update to it's freeware collection. I thought at the very least we would see the addition of Gimp-2 and the latest version of python and perhaps Firefox 0.8. If there's a message here at all it's ...

I tried xcdroast on tux (sorry cosmos-man) and it works fine too... Any known issues on IRIX? xcdroast works pretty well on IRIX, too. The real matter here is the audio extraction (ripping), which may depend heavily on the CD unit used to read the data. Due to the way audio tracks are stored on the...

SGI freeware has been restarted

Just look in the usual place. Very few updates this time, but at least is a sign of life, and it should improve in the next release.
