beta: neko_axyftp (urxftp) 0.5.2

Unread postby Titox » Sat Mar 17, 2012 6:55 am

Tested in Irix 6.5.21f and 6.5.30 in 400MHz Octane 2 with no problems. Moved big files (>600MB) over my LAN and downloaded Quake from Nekochan server without problems. Strange behaviour in the local file list: the two dots used to go up one folder level are appearing at the end of the list while in the remote file list are at the top (as usual); and if one file list is not full of file names, the window is not white but this is only cosmetic, everything works OK.

That definitively needs App Defaults to enable SGI Schemes, but I'd guess that it's missing its own App Defaults entirely. I suspect it should look more like this by default:

Sorry :oops: That's what you get when you send a boy out to do a man's job ...

Titox, if you create a file in your app-defaults directory named Axyftp, with the follwing inside :

Code: Select all

! axyftp settings

Axyftp*sgiMode:       true
Axyftp*useSchemes:       all
Axyftp*Background:       gray85

then you will get something a little more presentable ...

Actually, there's a lot of room there for improvement .... it would be nice if it were a real SGI-Look application but at least it's Motif and seems to work. I've been using it for months without any big problems. There are actually a few changes from the stock version - a little larger feedback area, clearer titles on the buttons, etc etc. But if canavan or another talented person wanted to fix the non-4dwm look widgets (progress bar in particular) and make it color-scheme compatible I would not feel insulted. The app also has a problem with figuring the size of huge files. They transfer fine but the progress bar and the size display are screwed up. It's cosmetic but still ...

Titox, did you install the patch to 6.5.21 to make it compatible with 6.5.22 ? I forget what the problem was but there was some reason dexter1 was adamant about that ...

The app-defaults file is on place. Am I missing something? Software installation? Configuration?

What patch is this? BTW the problem is with 6.5.30 also...

Oi vay. Well, you could always put the settings in .Xdefaults for the time being. I'll try to figure out why that works here but not for you ...
Titox wrote: What patch is this? BTW the problem is with 6.5.30 also...

This is going back a long time, we better ask recondas to do a search, but there was a patch that was (supposedly) necessary to run nekoware on 6.5.21. Pete might remember more about that ... 6.5.22 doesn't need it but if you go there, you lose Impressario and Display Postscript and a lot of other good stuff. Some day someone should put together a distribution of Irix that has all the good stuff from pre-22 included with the good stuff from 6.5.30 ...

meanwhile, sorry about the app-defaults, I think there's actually a newer version here somewhere but finding it might be a problem ... try sticking those settings in your xdefaults for now ?

I can observe similar behaviour on my 6.5.27: the app-defaults file has no effect but putting the stuff to the ~/.Xdefaults works. But only if a use "axyftp*Backgroud" instead of the "Axyftp*Background":

Code: Select all

axyftp*sgiMode:       true
axyftp*useSchemes:    all
axyftp*Background:    gray85


Anyway, it is a very nice program.

Writing this lines in $HOME/.Sgiresources (As Xdefaults is named in Irix) solved the problem but I had to write in booth accounts (root and the user) separately.

Code: Select all

axyftp*sgiMode:       true
axyftp*useSchemes:    all
axyftp*Background:    gray85

Thanks.

Maybe is anything to do with xrdb?

I'm a bit curious,
Where is the source code? The .idb of the package says /usr/nekoware/src/axyftp-0.5.2.tar.gz but there is nothing.

Ouch ! Ouch ! Ouch ! Does this mean you won't be recommending moving to current ? :oops:

Actually, i made this for myself but figured may as well share ... guess if I'm going to share I better do a better job in the future, hunh ? Will try to fix the delinquencies this weekend. Thank you for the comments. No pain, no gain ....

If you want to mess with the source, Titox, pm me and I can mail it to you. There are a few improvements (at least I think they are improvements) so if you want to save a little effort, no problem to send it to you. And I'll make a new 'dist with the source included.

I recommend for current as it works so good!

As I said, I'm only curious to compare diferences between the original source to the Irix one. Only for play and learn.

I can wait to your new dist release. :D

That's fairly common with Nekoware packages, in my (limited) experience. That's in keeping with the instructions in the "Final Steps" section of the Nekoware Packaging wiki page. Poke around in swmgr and you'll find the option to view the subsystems of the tardist to see what is/isn't installed by default and install any extra parts that you want.

Ah. I thought he meant that it wasn't there at all. Yes, the source code defaults to being an optional install. Release notes and other extras as well. In this case tho, it might be entirely missing :oops: Will try for a more correct package maybe this weekend ... at least the program works okay, it's the niceties that are fubar.

Works without issue in either Motif blue or SGI 85% gray.

Umm, thanks guys but to be honest, I don't think this dist is up to neko standards. It does work but if I got this from freeware I'd have a seriously negative impression. If y'all can wait a bit* I'll try to improve it.
