XLI or not XLI...

If you're not aware of the method for using native .jpg backgrounds, see my post in this thread:

mmm... I was under the impression that recent IRIX could handle JPEG images, but by some reason I've though I was wrong :(
Okay; seems that I'll make a newer version for >6.5.24, and I left the current with XLI for previous IRIX releases (seems useful for my own use anyway, where I'm installing sometimes for friends and customers some Indy/Indigo2 boxes only taking 6.5.22 as max version) :roll:

Thanks by your advice Neko! ;)

But 6.5.22 can accept .jpg files! Everything 6.5.22+ which is the same requirement as Nekoware, so this still doesn't make sense :)

All your friends with Indy/Indigo2 boxes with 6.5.22 have native .jpg/.bmp/.png 4DWM background support; all the older machines have this capability. No XLI is needed.

Cool!; Time to run a re-packaged JPEG background module with a modded .backgrounds to run with native IRIX capabilities! ;)
Just a question: ...then I could kill also the XPM based package too! :) ...What is the benefit of having it? The only caveat that I've noticed with JPG supporteds by XLI is the fact that the old 'snapshot' does not works properly; but I guess the IRIX built-in support works fine with any screen-capturing gizmo...
