Well, the reason I said it wouldn't work out is exactly because it's alive. If they update their protocol like an ordinary messenger, it will gradually break the IRIX version, since we'll be too short-staffed to maintain it.

Transmission, a popular bittorrent client for OS X and other *nix, has a component called "transmission-cli" which is just a simple command line client. Supports magnet links and UDP. It might be a nice replacement for neko_ctorrent, and since the efforts for libtorrent + rtorrent on IRIX seems to be dead end.

Can anyone with dev kung fu try to see if "transmission-cli" can be ported to IRIX?

I won't do Transmission because I won't port GPL software, but I don't mind trying btpd instead - its MIT licensed, written in C and looks to be stable enough that it will work, probably either with gmake/MIPSPro or gmake/gcc

Still interested in playing with PureData, I took time to rtfm, and compiled the simple scale demo. Its argument is a MIDI port name, which can be "Soft Synth" (default) or "Serial Port 1" (if 1st serial port has been configured as MIDI port in System Manager/Serial Ports). Then I extracted pd-0.34-3 archive on the Indigo2 (mips3), and MIDI out from test audio menu seems functional: the Soft Synth is playing on the internal speaker. I will try with a real MIDI interface. There are a few more recent versions with a makefile.irix.
How to replace gcc with mipspro in makefiles and what are the typical shell env variables required for a successful build ?

There's an IRIX binary of 34.3 here, or do you want to compile it yourself just for funzies?

I have tried pd-0.34-3, and want to find the most recent version that can be compiled but was released without IRIX binary.

Speaking of MIDI, is there any decent lightweight general-purpose sequencer application for *nix that could run on IRIX? I took a look around at stuff in the Debian repositories during my last Linux experiment and it seems like everything there is either a full-scale Sibelius-style sheet-music notation program or a "because all anyone will ever want to do is techno loops!" FruityLoops clone, and all of them weighed in at obscene sizes...you'd think for a standard that's as old as the Commodore 64 and requires less than a 38.4Kbps serial connection, there would be some less ridiculously bloated software available.

I like SEQ24 for simple stuff on Linux. To some degree, it emulates the older eight track hardware sequencers. Not sure if it could be compiled for IRIX, but it might be worth a shot. Nice synth collection BTW.

Mame. rTorrent(if not already in there somewhere), wolf3d, snes9x, mupen64(if it wasn't too demanding, but I'm not counting on that).

I'd just like to see a newer version of OpenSSH, personally.

That's exactly what I'm after.

It the Mosh possible? https://mosh.mit.edu

"Mosh is a replacement for SSH. It's more robust and responsive, especially over Wi-Fi, cellular, and long-distance links."

Icon Catalog -> Media Tools -> Syntheditor

There's also Rosegarden 2.1

For really simple, I think you can use Midikeys to record.

There's more than that, but that's all the names I can remember off the top of my head. Cecilia ? What does Cecilia do ?

this looked interesting so i gave it a shot. unfortunately these developers did not consider having anything else but glibc and gcc so even with gcc and quite some fixes it was a no-go.
