Irix 6.5.22 on R4000 Indigo Last MIPSPro version

Unread postby uunix » Fri Mar 10, 2017 7:47 am

Have just put a clean version of 6.5.22 on R4000 Indigo.

What version of MIPSPro installs and works? The reason I ask is that, I have carried out this exercise before and it never seems to install the 32bit headers using 7.4.4. So I'm either doing something wrong or I'm using the wrong MIPS versions.

Interestingly using the same source of 6.5.22 and MIPSPro 7.4.4 I am able to install and compile on INDY R4400 no problem. Hence is 7.4.4 incompatible?

Thanks.

Which 32 bit headers are you referring to? The o32 or the n32?

If it doesn't install by default then it might be that there is a patch needed to make it install under 6.5.22 . The R4000 is finnicky in that there are several bugs which impacts performance. This also makes it really cool to try and test if compiled software actually runs.

Try looking into your patch collection for header fixes for MIPSPro
