A modern version of Inkscape would be nice.
From a quick search at the compiling instructions and nekoware it seems that the requirements are here...

Doing a further search on Inkscape 0.45 Release Notes i found the below:

Thanks to patches submitted by users of our community, Inkscape can now be built on SGI IRIX 6.5.28, gcc 3.4.0 systems and on Tru64 systems.

Anyone can help on this. Is there a binary around?

Cave story needs some work, since it doesn't support MSB Audio (it defaults to AUDIO_S16, which is LSB and bails out if it doesn't get what it asks for, which it doesn't with RAD or MAD, maybe something else works), and it's not finding some sound files (pxt/fx01.pxt - pxt/fx75.pxt), and music initialization fails. http://canavan.de/neko/nx-1003-irix.tar.bz2

Considering the impressive usefulness that FreeCAD shows actually:

http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/f ... =Main_Page

...and the fact that Nekoware already accounts with POV-Ray:

http://www.povray.org/

...I think this is another cool app that I'd love to get running on IRIX:

http://sourceforge.net/apps/phpwebsite/yaprm/index.php

I've downloaded the actual release for Debian, and it looks way interesting, and a lot more if you want an easier fashion to get the FreeCAD models rendered with POV. Oh... of course that assumes that there is already a Nekoware'd package for FreeCAD... so, that's a long shot, but... well, oh, who knows... :)

Yeah, even on Windows. That pos doesn't work, period.

If possible, I would like to see Cube, Cube2:Sauerbraten or AssaultCube ported to Irix. They're very good open source 3D FPS games in the tradition of Quake and Quake2. Of the three, Cube is the simplest and more suitable for lower end hardware. A quote from the Cube webpage:

Cube is the original game that started it all. Though it has been surpassed in almost every way by Cube 2, it is a game in its own right. Most importantly, it comes with over 100 (!) maps, most of which are not available in Cube 2, with extensive single and multi player content.

Cube is also smaller in every way, in download, in hardware requirements (runs well on older video cards!), and in source code (the absolutely tiny code base is a very easy start for those wishing to experiment).

It also has some unique engine features such as the high precision dynamic occlusion culling, and its heighfield based level format.

Just got the power resolved in the lab and the Onyx4 back on line!
I need to get my nekoware packages updated and then I'll give it a try.

Thanks!

I'm trying to port some important apps to Irix 6.5.x using NetBSD's pkgsrc, but I'm stucked with Python linking. Hope to solve this issues later and start with gtk2 and GUI libraries and software.

I want to use my O2 as an mediaserver. I tried pymeds. Works but not too reliable.

This one looks like it would be a worthy opponent :

http://www.synfig.org/cms/

Looks like a lot of C++ which is scary but other than that ... possible ? Looks like it could be a fun program.
ah, breaker one-nine, this here's the rubber duck ... you got a copy on me pigpen, c'mon ? ...
