What software are you working on now

I'm working on:

- neko_tcl 8.6.6 (compile and test done, needs mktime() patch and packaging)
- neko_openssl-1.0.2j (compile and test done, packaging now)
- neko_openssh-7.4p1 (compile done, regression test failed which need investigating)

When openssl is done i can start libffi and Python 2.7.13 and 3.5.2 which is my end goal before easter.

Ah openssl great! Mine appears to be broken

Well, if you're referring to the Perl CPAN IO::Socket::SSL build fail, the problem is that CPAN always finds the system openssl but not its headers, and if you install the headers for openssl (in openssl.sw.headers) they appear to have compiled kerberos with it but forgot to package krb5.h (nowhere to be seen in kerberos.sw.*) . Apparently this was a common bug in early 2005 with openssl packages.

But you can't uninstall system openssl right away since most need some sort of ssh access to their boxes and openssh is firmly linked with openssl versions, which is why we all need a new openssl/openssh combo from nekoware :|

I tried to research where perl finds his compile options for the CPAN stuff in order to attempt to sneak in /usr/nekoware paths. It's in config.pm in i think /usr/nekoware/lib/perl/5.24.0/irix-n32 but unfortunately some perlmonks say that hacking that file will not guarantee a proper build. And even my attempts were unfruitful because it still finds the system openssl ...

Does this newer OpenSSL have support for better ciphers...

Never mind actually. Was thinking of OpenVMS and how I can't SSH from PC's anymore due to the deprecated encryption stuff. Just wondered if the new nekoports would address this potential problem before it becomes a problem.

But thanks for your efforts to port new pieces of software to the repository. I do appreciate it.

SHA-1 is a message digest function, not a cipher. The integrity of the code (buffer overflows etc) is far more important for a program like openssh (and there have been a lot of bugs in that area)

OpenSSL is kind of crap but I guess trying to graft LibreSSL onto this old UNIX is a lot like trying to add fuel injection and VVT to an old Model T on the original engine.

Still curious if someone wants to try porting Xtend to Irix.

Before diving into compiling it locally - anyone have git running on their machines? Tried the latest and 2 versions back from nekoware on my Tezro and am getting "Cannot Successfully map soname 'liblber-2.3.so.1'" errors when cloning.

Git error'd out last time I tried to use it too.

Alright cool I'll spend some time one night this week getting one working and package it together for nekoware.

When I get reimu back up and running may as well look at mercurial too - maybe update the port. I don't do nekoware packaging though, just patch the builds and document it to allow someone else to do it.

gEDA would be very useful on Irix!

One that struck me last night while working at the 3D printer.

What are the odds we can build Slic3r? The web front-end on the makerspace printer is just primitive enough I could actually model and export the work to the printer from the SGI exclusively.

Definitely someone with C++ experience could have a chance at porting that.
