I am trying to compile Nebula and configure barfs with an error:
ld32: FATAL 9: I/O error (/usr/lib32/mips3/ctrl.0) No such file or directory.

Configure failed program was /*confdefs.h*/

I just installed the developer base cd, did I miss something?

Search your harddrive for that file. I had that with another program the other day (what was it... aehm... yudit? i don't remember) and the final linking looked for a shared object in a directory that doesn't exist. Dunno why, nothing as to that in the makefile. I made a symlink from the real file to the "supposed" one, it compiled, linked, complained it found ambiguous shared objects and used the real one instead. Maybe that could work for you. Make sure to remove the symlink afterwards for cleanliness.

I ran it as root and what it really wants is a mips pro license. :?

no, if you are using gcc you may need to set the CC environment variable "CC=gcc" or use a configure flag if available "--with-cc=gcc" or even edit the configure script...

You'll need to insure you installed everything correctly, devel foundation/libs, etc. If not you'll probably get "c compiler cannot create executables" error.

Oh I remember now; I got the development base installed but the libs all conflicted with eoe.sw.base (IRIX Base Execution Enviroment 1279214320). How do I get around this?

Check the libs cd. Mount it look around the filesystem. I think it is set up something like the NFS cd, where you need to point inst to a non-standard directory.

It sounds like you didn't feed your current overlay CDs alongside your development libs/IRIX base. For example - if you have IRIX 6.5.22 currently installed but with no development environment, you will need to re-insert your base IRIX 6.5 CDs (which includes your development CDs) AND your IRIX 6.5.22 overlays to resolve any conflicts.

It didn't ask for any overlays but I'm game to try it. Would a clean install from scratch do any good?

It won't specifically ask for them by name, but that's how you resolve the conflict. If you'd prefer to install from scratch that would work as well.

You should consider contacting Gandalf. He has built Nebula and wants people to test his binary.

I've tried contacting Gandalf but to no avail. Anyway, I just got my set of Irix cds and I wanted to try them out. I don't really want to clean reinstall since I've heard horror stories so I'll try Neko's suggestion first.

I recently had a situation similar to yours, and re-installing the development libs plus the *.22 overlays solved the problem for me. :wink:

hmm. No avail? :)
catch me in IRC... and I'll pass you a binary.. But on the long run, you better fix up your box probably.
Zhile configure works stright away on irix 4.0, on 6.5 you need to point it to the motif includes 2.1, using the appriopriate configure options (configure --help)

I clean reinstalled, which was interesting. Could they make the install process any more cryptic? It went okay after I figured out (after an hour or so of trying) that my cd wasn't bootable. I did fubar installing the overlays to to go from 6.5.0 to 6.5.13, things you learn. So reinstalled irix again and did the overlays from miniroot.

All is well. :D

If they really really tried they probably could, but now that Irix is on the back burner we'll probably have to make do with the crypticity level we already have :P
