  • apache_2410.tar.bz2
  • pcre_76.tardist

pcre is with utf8 but without c++ support. my good old 6.6 seemed a bit dated and lacked some popular macros so here's a newer one.
apache is as default as it gets although i didn't include some of the docs. it also includes both required apr libs (without ipv6 support). make sure to use appropriate alternatives or add /usr/local/apache2/lib to your LD_LIBRARYN32_PATH

  • gimp_125.tar.bz2

never hurts to have a classic. the last gtk1 version including the data extras that were available back then. it's a separate dir for the whole thing that goes to /usr/local so that you can run gimp2 and this one one the same machine without problems.

Thanks for the nginx! I've been thinking of playing with that on IRIX.

NGINX is better than Apache by far.

it depends on what you wanna do. apache has way more features and a much broader platform support

What does Apache have that NGINX doesn't have? NGINX runs on almost any unix-like system, which is good enough for my use case, its not like I'm gonna go and get a Windows Azure VPS and run Apache on it, or run Apache on OpenVMS, they have their own webservers which are better tied to those OSes. NGINX uses far less memory than Apache does and can handle more connections at once. NGINX has a BIND-like file config, Apache has nasty XML. Apache's under little more restrictive license, and has know security issues. Never heard of any issues with NGINX.

Eh I just think Apache stopped being KISS after the 2.x release.

The Sun Solaris Netscape Oracle iPlanet Java One Server to Conquer Them All server is pretty nifty as well. There is a slow-moving open-source version of that, which I have thought would be fun to try on Urx.

It's not popular with the groupies, which is a +1 for me as well :D

Plus, it shares some DNA with Netscape FastTrack Server that used to be bundled with IRIX!

There's a little bit about it here :

http://www.virkki.com/jyri/articles/ind ... eb-server/

but not too much. I think you can still get it free but it's a bitch to find. I snagged it a while back, have been running it for several years but on Solaris. It's interesting and works well. Quite different from Apache tho.

I remember when Sun open-sourced it, all the chimpanzees at slashdot were gibbering in unison, "What do we need that crusty old crap for ?"

Maybe because it works better than Apache ?

edit : I was wrong :oops: There's Winders of a couple varieties, Solaris in two varieties, AIX and HP-UX. No Irix tho :(

Free here :

If you have an interest I'd grab it fast tho. Larry, he don' like nobody what gets nuttin' of his without payin' up the wazoo. This is only 7.15, I have seen docs related to 7.20 but can't find that for the life of me.

Be prepared for a learning experience - it's not like the rest of the web servers out there. It passed through the Sun Reality Translation Vector at some point.

I'm at 60 of 160 megabytes now, hope this isn't just a giant tiff of Larry laughing in my face ...
