Today I wanted to try out firefox on my Indy, but wanted to use a mirror and could not find one.
So is mips3 SW only available via nekochan.net and not through a mirror?

it's a means to an end

That's correct - it's my personal project at this point.

If you'd like nekosync to allow mirroring from this archive, then all that's needed is a descript.ion file with MD5 sums, and everything'll just work (using either the $mirror or $extra configuration directives, or the --mirror or --extra command-line options).

Having said that, if you'd prefer to protect your bandwidth and wait until the mirrors have a copy of the data, then that's completely understandable :)

Great work neko!!

I just noticed them popping up on my mirror, which syncs from dexter1's twice a day.

SGI computers are getting more fun by the day :D
Shall I describe it to you? Or do you want me to get you a box?

Not a problem! Had to PM dexter1 the other day to get the mirror going; he doesn't drop by anymore unless you bug him :D

Neko,
Sorry for the delay of my posts, I have started to a new job and I am sleeping at 11 p.m. :-) Of course I am still on my Indigo2 R4400 side !!

The truth is that I have downloaded all the packs for mips3 (since midnight commander, which is super - any GUI version of this great program ??) from the PC of my job to my 1GB usb stick !!

Today I noticed that you added perl ... etc. I will download them tommorow!

As my Indigo takes internet via "CCPROXY" of my old PC that has not a monitor (I am working it via VNC) and it is always on for emule, I would like to see:

a samba version with swat
and
a p2p client

Of course Geneatrixs' toolchest menu is completing day by day :-) probably his menu is upon your tardist distributions !!!

Codepages work well in Greek and of course English language. The speed of this Firefox version is enough good for a mips3 processor really.

Is it possible to have a shockwave or a flash plugin for Deer Park, to be able to view more complicated urls ?

Thank you very much and keep up the good work !!!

Like I've said, if it isn't in nekoware-mips4 it's not going in nekoware-mips3 - I'm not going to do exclusive packages that don't have an equivalent in the the mips4 distro. This is just a 1:1 port project :)

If you want to see these things you'll need to post something in:

viewtopic.php?t=4348

... and once someone does a mips4 package I'll re-roll it as mips3 based on supplied patches.

VNC

thanks nekonoko for this great resource!

I could _really_ use a vncviewer on my I2 for those random times I need to hit a winbox.
It's listed in mips4 nekoware as neko_tightvnc-1.2.9.tardist with dependencies: libjpeg,zlib which are obviously already in the mips3 supplement.

Done, might take a little bit to hit the mirror - give it a try when you get a chance :)

tightvnc-1.2.9

Unread postby nelsonbt » Thu Jul 20, 2006 11:52 am

works great on my I2-R4400 -- quite nice with a phobos fast ethernet card.
thanks nekonoko!

(checked, and the vncserver also works)

Cool, I have one of those in my Indigo(1) R4400; makes a huge difference. I just bought a Set Engineering card to play with as I've heard they offer even more performance.

Glad to hear it's working!

not really :-(
I have the Set Engineering in my r5k-180 Challenge S and it performs about as poor as the Phobos E100 (EISA) in an Indigo2 (~6.5 MB/s peak according to ttcp). And it does Half Duplex only.. :-(
It might keep up with the Phobos G100 but i'd trade it for a G130 in a second. The advantage of the Set Engineering is that you don't need extra drivers. Even the miniroot kernel already knows the board, so you can use it for network installs..

Ah, okay then - in that case I'll just put it in an Indy and keep the G130 in the Indigo. It's doing full duplex pretty nicely at the moment :)
