rdesktop 1.8.3

Unread postby hamei » Wed Jul 22, 2015 5:46 am

Canavan's rdesktop is great, solved my browser problem entirely. However, there's a new one ! Ooh ! Ooh ! Version lust ! Whoopee ! After all these years I'm still an idiot ...

To build, extract canavan's patches from the 1.7.1 tardist. Apply. Then I just configure --prefix=/usr/nekoware and ditched the libiconv and ipv6 directives. Your needs may be different. As the build progresses, it will bitch about "You don't have KitchenSink 3.1 ! Consider adding it or configure --without-kitchensink". I chose the latter, about five times.

Except for that, it builds fine up to

Code: Select all

cc-1117 c99: ERROR File = rdp.c, Line = 288
  An expression appears after a "return" in a "void" function.

                                return rdp_in_unistr(s, in_len, string, str_size);
                                       ^

1 error detected in the compilation of "rdp.c".


thanks to instructions from foetz, changed to

Code: Select all

                                rdp_in_unistr(s, in_len, string, str_size);
                                return;


And she'sa builda. If you can't be smart, have smart friends. Thank you very much, Mr Foetz.

So far working good. In fact, I think it looks better via rdp than it does on the windders machine. Posting this from an Octane via Light running on a Win2003 box, secretly behind the Assist's back. If she ever figures out I'm stealing cycles, I'll be singing tenor in the Norman Luboff Choir.

But it works really good. Still some glitches but compared to fighting gtk2, what a relief.


Except I'm still running the flop. I said I'm an idiot ... anyone look in the about:config window recently ? Anybody want to help me storm their castle with lit torches ? Those people should be drawn and quartered. Maybe I should use Internet Exploder.

Oh Christ. What did I just say ? :(

I ditched Firefox on my PC over a year ago now, ever since Australis came along and made me want to gouge out my eyes with a toothpick. I currently use Pale Moon as it's Firefox without the recent Mozilla kool-aid.

Thanks again, really. And this (rdesktop) is the best answer I've come across for browsing on Irix. It's as fast as local browsing on Windows and looks better, too :D

In the long run, it's ridiculous that there are no functional browsers except for the newest latest Windows/Loonix/Mackletosh horseshit. The web has been destroyed by commercial interests who only care about how much advertising garbage they can jam down our throats and how much data they can get back, to further jam more crap down our throats. Even the so-called kermyooonity sites like sourceforge have turned to crap. It's quite possible that the web will truly become the Home Shopping Channel with an absolute value of zero within a couple more years.

But if not, it's beyond reason that computers capable of simulating nuclear explosions can't drive a responsive web browser. There is something totally wrong about this situation.

OK, here's a tardist for rdesktop-1.8.3 - still the latest version at this time (ported using hamei and foetz's notes above - thanks for those!). I've also sent it through to incoming.

I compiled it on my Indigo2 (admittedly with GCC rather than MIPSPro), therefore I can confirm it's tested successfully with IRIX 6.5.22. I've also tested it on my Fuel (IRIX 6.5.30) where it also worked fine. However as it is my first ever tardist and testing I've performed has been limited, please also test it if you can and let me know if I've stuffed anything up!

And with that, finally an item off my bucket list (to compile a program, package it into a tardist and submit it to Nekoware)!

Nice one Trippynet, I'm hopeful for 24bit colour ?

I'm missing neko_libsamplerate.sw.eoe and can't see it on the neko ftp? Is it part of something else?

Thanks

I disliked Australis, but I've gotten used to it. What's really a dumpster fire is Photon, though. Fx57 looks like @$$ on my Mac, and especially on Windows, where they must have been dropping acid when they did the icons. The only redeeming characteristic about the hideous UI decisions and the loss of most of my add-ons is that it is, truly, stonking fast.

But if it weren't for Google trying to probe my backside everywhere I go on the Web, I'm not sure I'd stick with Firefox.

TenFourFox, though ... that's pretty good stuff, even though the author's a jerk. :D

Foetz (or anyone else), is there another easy way of giving Pete a nudge to have this package moved from incoming to beta? I did drop him a PM, but it's still sitting in my outbox and hasn't been read yet.

Thanks!

I downloaded the package from the above post and put it in /beta

Is there still a need for the old 1.7.1 version? If not, i will put that in /obsolete
