Bad window draw with neko_gftp (resolved)

Unread postby Titox » Fri Mar 16, 2012 1:16 pm

Hello,
the last week I reinstalled Irix in all my machines. Both O2 and Octane have 6.5.21f and 6.5.30 using two hard disks. To copy files and software from my NAS to the Irix machines I'm using FTP so I installed neko_gftp, but I have problems with the window display:

I have tested with both Irix releases and being root and standard user. I can't see any error in the console using my Octane with 6.5.30 (is the machine I'm using now).

Any idea?

edit: reupload of image file.

You might try axyftp. It's in /beta and I've been using it for a while. It's Motif and fits in with Irix well, altho the widgets are one-offs. Performance seems good altho it's a little quirky.

Another thing, if you put this in /Development perhaps it would be useful to people interested in working on nekoware ?

Installed. Very nice and works OK. I like!

I don't understand. To move this message to the Development forum? Anyway I don't like GFTP. Never liked it. Now AxyFTP is what I wanted and fill my needs. I will setup a NFS server on my NAS (I had it sometime ago but I moved to new NAS).

Thank you very much

Thanks for trying it out and reporting back. I'm on a crusade to clean up nekoware beta as much as possible so if you have a minute, could you start one or two threads in the development forum ? One for axyftp to say "it works !" and one for gftp to say "It has problems for me with color pollution" ... I'm hoping we can clean up beta a little, get some of the better tardists accepted into current then try to generate some interest in building nekoware packages. A computer without software is pretty useless.

Help on this was the reason to install 6.5.21f in my machines. Unfortunately I don't have alot of free time to do tests. Well, now I have my Octane and O2 ready for test packages and I will help as I have time. My Fuel has a bad graphics card so no IP35 test until next month.

Mandelbulber actually had the same problem on my Octane, because I hadn't bothered to set the default visual to true color yet. The usual "-depth 24 -class TrueColor" in /usr/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers fixed that. Either this is a bug in gtk(2? +?) or it just "works as desiged," but I don't think it 's a problem specific to gftp.

Thank you. I forgot this. Now works as expected.
