The thread-per-package might give you a nice place for people to come back and log problems later. Like if it turns out it does have a bad interaction with another package, or combination thereof, or ...

I've moved one package to /current after three positive votes, but based on the low response to the threads so far we may have to go with just two positive votes.

Don't have any IRIX machines powered up at the moment but if I get time tomorrow I'll have a run at it.

Pretty much the same situation here. I have my Onyx2 half set up, but still have some work to do yet.

I'd love to help but I don't even have an analog monitor to run the little beastie with right now...

Great job on this hamei !
I know I said I'd help but I've been obsessing over my dmrecord/virtual memory problem.
Am learning lots about C and unix memory though.
Really enjoy reading sgi tech pubs documentation.

Much appreciate the TLC the package archive is getting. A platform without TLC is a dead one.

I've got a nice SGI 21"-er I can donate. C'mon by and pick it up :P

You figure out the dmrecord problem and we'll let you slide on the nekoware responsibilities ....

Hi,
my Octane 2 (400Mhz & 2 GB RAM) and O2 (R5200 256MB) are ready to test packages with 6.521f and 6.5.30 in both machines. Irix 6.5.21f hard disks have a nearly full nekoware installation also to check dependencies.

I praise for get some more free time!

At one time joerg had a script that would automatically pull the release notes from a tardist and create a wiki entry based on it (he used it on his own wiki). I'm not sure if he still has it anymore; he's pretty much moved on.



Iam far away but not dead.

IIRC i have written two or three scripts.
- Collect the dependencies and pulls out the package IDs
- Simple checking if the package contains the minum of files and informations
- a neko_import which extract the infos from package and upload the information into a mediawiki. It works fine on my own test environment but the nekochan wiki have the captcha which is a problem for my script

My two 32 CPU Origins are shutdown some time ago because i cant affort the costs for power and cooling. It was a great time which never comes back again :cry:

Regards
Joerg

Haven't had a captcha (ConfirmEdit) for a while now. Instead, I installed ConfirmAccount which allows trusted accounts to post whatever they want. Stops the random link farmers/vandals and would still allow a script like that to run.
