Hello,

Would anyone be interrested in trying to port KDE 3.2 to irix
as soon as it will be available?
I would but I am not sure I have enough knowledge to do that...
And the job sounds pretty big.

Well i will say that k3b is prolly the best burner software on Linux so if that's included in your port i'd be one happy guy

Now if only someone would port gnome2.4/6 port as well, i do translation of it into irish.
Epiphany is one of the first web browsers nearly fully translated into irish

Hello,

Do you think we should try with qt 3.3? Or latest qt 3.2?

Hello,

So KDE 3.2 has been released today.
I have build qt 3.3 beta with the MIPSpro quite easily.
I must still investigate a problem with that.

Sources are already on my home dir.

So be ready for questions soon.

Good luck with that - I can't even get KDE 3.2 to build using qt 3.3 beta on a Linux system :) I had to downgrade to qt 3.2.3 which works fine with it. I don't think the beta is ready for prime time just yet.

Hello,

So sounds bad news... If on linux it already fails... Grrr Beta is Beta
I can give it a try with 3.2.3 just to remove the suspicion from 3.3Beta1...

But I get 3.3 compile... and first bad thing...
When I issue and ldd on libqui.so it is linked with libqt-mt.so.3 but not from my lib dir but from the lib dir of the sources??? Bweuh...
Any idea?

Ok there is a stupid -rpath pointing to the wrong place grrrrrrrrrr
One more build...

I will give a try with 3.2.3 just to see...
I have decided to go with 3.2.3... Will go with 3.3 the day it will be released.

Hello,

Finally it arrives...

I am unable to build arts...
I can build a part of it with cc and a lot of hacking than it complains about unresolved symbols...
I hace tried with gcc and it complains on my qt library saying QString::null unresolved symbol and that during the configure...

There I have no clue to continue further...
I can of course try to build a QT 3.2.3 and give it a test...

For the rests I have sucessfully build nearly all the dependencies of the kdelibs :
openssl,pcre,libxml2,libxslt,libart-lgpl,libjpeg,libtiff,libpng,expat,graphviz,doxygen

Now I am blocked.

Any idea?

Wish I was that far already.

For some weird reason, the packages that first did compile on my system, now don't. I get the strangest errors so this is quite blocking me in my progress on anything.

I hope I don't have to reinstall my server.

Hello,

Due to a serious lack of time.
(I have to reborn my nice linux alpha system)
Due to the fact the task is too big/hard/complicated for my own tiny person.
Due to the fact that everything is ready for gnome 2.4 on nekochan.

I decide to gave up on that crazy project of mine.

Hello,

I am still finally fighting with kde 3.2.
I can't resolve my self to abandon on a failure.

And mainly with arts...

I got the following with mipspro C/C++ 7.3.1.3

cc-1239 CC: ERROR File = dispatcher.cc, Line = 1004
"cerr" is ambiguous.

cerr << "WARNING: got corrupt MCOP message !??" << endl;

It is possible to solve this by chqmging iostream in iostream.h
Sounds mipro don't know which cerr to use whem both iostream and iostream.h are included

cc-1312 CC: ERROR File = /usr/include/unistd.h, Line = 525
More than one instance of overloaded function "getdomainname" has "C" linkage.

extern int getdomainname(char *, int);

A non solution is to remove that definition out of the header file... dumb but working
Or should I really consider to update to the latest overlay since I am still using 6.5.17 and a lot of changes have occured in 6.5.18.

I didn't try it yet with gcc since I have to rebuild QT with gcc also...
And I would like to hev everything mipspro builded...

Regards,

LoWeN
