This has to be the easiest thing to do for nekoware, here is a "teaching someone to fish not giving them a fish" scenario..

Download C-Kermit ("unix complete" archive) from http://www.columbia.edu/kermit/ck80.html#source

unpack it as your preferred method.

make sure you have neko_make tardist installed and MIPS Pro.

Open a Winterm change to the directory and type:

Code: Select all

    gmake irix65


It will create an executable called wermit, set this up in the nekoware packaging as /usr/nekoware/bin/kermit

Read and follow the instructions for packaging software in the wiki: http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/ ... g_Software

Test the package....

Submit the package to incoming and wait for someone to test it.

Anything you are not sure of, ask for help in #devel on iric.nekochan.net or post questions on the forums.

I read clause (B) differently. "in or with any product" As a Nekoware package it won't be distributed in or with any product, but by itself. I read clause (B) to prevent it being bundled with commercial operating systems (by said commercial OS vendor) without a license from Columbia University.

I think that is not in keeping with the spirit or intent of the agreement, in any case, nekoware is not a comercial operation and there is an email address for someone to resolve any ambiguity about the terms of the agreement/rights/etc..

I've built 23 out of 27 of the simh simulators, pretty much a no brainer to build even with MIPS Pro, someone else can go looking for legal clauses or whatever and finish it off, I suddenly can't be bothered.

A pretty mild debate compared to some I've seen!

I never heard of Nikoware before but if they're not selling
it, they're perfectly welcome to include C-Kermit. Furthermore
I'd encourage them to check the latest version:

http://www.columbia.edu/kermit/ck90.html

since I haven't had access to IRIX for quite some time. And
if any changes are needed, to send them back to me so I can
incorporate them in the new release.

- Frank


I take that as approval for non-commercial binary distribution and request to feedback changes.

Hello,

There has been no update of neko_amanda for a little while... Is it possible to get version 3.1 packaged?

Thank you

Hello (again),

Can anyone please tackle the packaging of libnotify-0.4.5 (compiles with no problem), libsexy-0.1.11 (compiles with a few warnings) and libwnck-2.30.6 (I didn't manage to compile this one)?

Quick question: is it possible to create the actual package from the command line?

Thanks

Michael

swpkg is just a GUI to generate an idb (easy to automate) and spec (requires some manual adjustments) and a frontend for gendist.

Hi folks.

I'm trying to find some graphical disk usage analyzer which could draw tree maps.

I've found xdiskusage but it seems that the areas are not proportional to the real size of the folders. There are other softs too. Baobab looks good, but sources are not available. jdiskreport can display pie-charts but no tree maps.

My favourite (on the dark side of the force... windows) is spacemonger: simple but efficient. Do you know about a similar soft for irix, or that would compile quite easily ?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

hi guys, has anyone here also use Ipmsg on your office? or is it only me hehe coz im almost done with my motif version of it, i know there is already xipmsg and i was able to run it on my Octane, its just xipmsg only can do message but no file tranfer, so my question is, is my little project worth the time? anyway it also helped me learn Motif programming :)

also got gtk version but hmm current neko libs are not supported, thats why decided to build motif
excited and hoping for my first lil contribution for this wonderful community, wish me luck! hehe
