That's source+binary+data, unpack wherever you want. if you want a nekoware package, try finding out why it appears to get the visuals wrong, I think red/green is swapped in the opening/menu, and build a nice Icon with iconsmith...


Hi,

I don't have the problem with opening menu (O2-180, 6.5.22) and I'm not a graphist… anyone can do an icon to have a nekoware of it?

Yup, the software is exactly that: Brilliant!

...but maybe the webmasters behind the site are less pro-active than the sourcecoders! :)

using SGI gear. I realize we don't have a tv tuner cards but there should be a way to use O2's and Octane/O200's to build a similar system and just feed the cable box into your video inputs?


Up…Isn't it possible to get it running without any acquisition card? I couldn't find any info on this?

How hard would it be to have http://code.google.com/p/quodlibet working? It's written in Python, so that shouldn't be a problem, but it uses gstreamer for playback - has that been ported?

Also, I know we have plenty of backup programs already, but http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~bcpierce/unison/ would be nice...

I compiled this locally... and it seems to work fine. Since it was asked for in November 2009 and its now January 2011 and the requester has 3 posts, I suspect that it is no longer wanted..?
If it is still wanted I will go through and clean it up and package it, unless someone wants to help me with that.

Teams
I have about 5 or 6 things I have built that other people want(ed) and never got around to packaging...
I think it would be cool if people who can package and test put their hand up and volunteer to package stuff.
There was a forth package that I ported and "Debug" (Harry) packaged and made its way into nekoware.
Porting is not that hard for me but I don't have the time or inclination to get around to packaging.. once it works for me I am usually happy enough with it...
If we form informal teams with someone packaging/project managing and whatever else and someone coding/porting we could make more progress..

wiki
There is a packaging page at:
http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/ ... g_Software

I had to write a couple of small standard library wrapper functions to get newlisp to compile which I should write about in the wiki topic (look for TODO)...

I'll bite.
Let me know how I can download it and I'll do it when I have time. (Not for another three weeks)
I need to spend some quality time in my SGI room.

Guess I could do something constructive and try my hand at packaging also.
