ok, next try.. double checked the installation on my i2 (nekoware virgin) this time ;-)

That revealed some slight issues with the prereqs of some other packages though. Seems like the sw.lib subsystems of some packages could use prereqs to their respective .sw.eoe subsystems (not only the other way round) - neko_gtk, neko_fontconfig and neko_pango in this case.

Looks good here - removed the symbolic link and everything still works. Thanks for the quick fixes!

Here's a bit of benchmark data on the new mplayer build:

The machine is 2 x 600MHz, 2 x V12 + DCD with 8GB of RAM running at 1280x1024/24bpp/75Hz at the time of the test.

Items of note: the test video was a bit jumpy toward the beginning during the pan across the landscape and contained a few artifacts in the blacks when the yellow text was on the screen. The test hit 100% of one CPU, but never really effected the second CPU on either version of mplayer; odd.

Overall, great work schleusel!

thanks for the testing :-) Those results are in line with what i benchmarked so far.. its good to see that the performance stayed this consistent with two years between those two releases..

Thats expected for a codec only test. The multi threading in vo_sgi (offloads colorspace conversion to a separate thread) doesn't help you there of course :-)

There is not much worthwhile multi threading going on in stock mplayer. There is optional multi threading support in libavcodec that you can enable with -lavdopts threads=n but afaik it only works for mpeg based codecs and even there it performs rather unimpressive - actually tends to slow things down when going beyond two threads. I did some benchmarks on a 4 CPU cpuset on joergs Origin 2000 some weeks ago: http://www.kanera.de/mplayer-libavcodec-threads.txt

Well, maybe that will improve in the future with all the current multi core hype, who knows..

Ah. Well, that's reassuring. I've been throwing everything I've got against this latest build, and it seems to be working fine. CPU usage has been manageable and apart from the occasional artifact, the quality is great.

I fired up my Indigo2 and installed apache2, mysql4, perl5.8 etc. Everything works fine. Neko tardists are very comfortable :)
Currently I'm working on some perl scripts. Is there a ready-to-go binary of DBD::mysql driver somewhere around? I tried to build it and run the Makefile. Paths to libs, includes, mysql_config should be okay. The Makefile quits where the mysql.mtest file is opened. Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Tried to build it again. Make install :)

neko_firefox-1.5.0.8 is now in /beta. Probably the last MIPSpro Firefox build for the foreseeable future (from me at any rate) due to code changes in the 2.0 release.

joerg, you are definitely on top of things ! If you want a challenge, maybe take a look at this :

http://www.lilypond.org

I started it but at the rate I'm going it'll be 2017 before I have even the dependencies working :-(

Just uploaded to beta:

neko_gaim-2.0.0beta5!

It took me a *long* while to get it done, but it's a very, verrry sexy release :D a new feature lots of people will appreciate: gaim-text is included in this package - an ncurses based frontend to gaim; no more need to run the gtk2 frontend! Also rather handy for MSN-in-screen... ;) on top of that, the Zephyr protocol builds again, for the first time in a long while, and a new "QQ" protocol was added. Don't ask me what it is, I only build it. :)

A few remarks: Jabber over TLS *still* doesn't work. Someone go ahead and shoot the gnutls developers, but rewriting rijndael encryption on mips is way over my head... :( Secondly: gaim-text is new. As in... brand spanking new. As in... expected to be buggy :lol: keep the following things in mind:

1. gaim-text currently works best with $TERM set to rxvt. Better support for other TERM settings is coming up, but this is the work of one guy (sadrul@freenode) so you can imagine he's busy enough... :)
2. gaim-text is vulnerable to non-UTF8. If you stick to plain ASCII all should be well and so far I haven't encountered many issues, but you've been warned... :)
3. gaim-text doesn't like all plugins. At this moment, some plugins in the plugin pack can make it segfault just by having them loaded in a menu. This is also getting fixed - mostly caused by libc differences.

Basically: gaim-text is a new toy - don't expect heavy reliability yet. All dbx backtraces of possible coredumps are welcome in my mailbox, on the sourceforge project page for gaim or in #gaim at irc.freenode.net. Gaim has come a very, very long way since I tried to tackle its source for the first time, and the devs are happy to get IRIX feedback. :)

Enjoy!


PS: here's a screenshot of what gaim-text looks like for me with one MSN and one Yahoo account, SSH'ing to my IRIX box...

QQ ? Really ? That's the biggest instant messaging system in China. I spend a great deal of time at work tearing it out of peope's computers :-) The application is a beast. It installs all kinds of crap that is very difficult to get rid of. I believe it was originally derived from OICQ.

Just grabbed nekoware gcc from current (neko_gcc-3.4.6.tardist) and thought cool, no dependencies! But got this after installing:

1705:gcc: rld: Fatal Error: Cannot Successfully map soname 'libiconv.so.3' under any of the filenames...

Something I missed, or are the dependencies out of date?
