I'd rather c-ray not be a tardist, because it's best used after being compiled natively
on each test machine, rather than using a predefined binary for all compatible systems.

Btw, my main site is www.sgidepot.co.uk/sgi.html (Blinkenlights is just a mirror).

A proper tardist for c-ray could easily include an optimized version for any (of the popular) IPxx / CPU combinations....

Nah, I'd rather it left as it is for the moment.

Please compile me MiniDLNA 1.1.0. http://sourceforge.net/projects/minidlna
In my experience an O2 is capable to use as a DLNA server.
I tried to compile MiniDLNA using GCC 4.7.1.

I don't have C programming skills and i stuck at this point:

Code: Select all

  CC     getifaddr.o
getifaddr.c: In function 'getsyshwaddr':
getifaddr.c:313:17: error: 'SIOCGIFHWADDR' undeclared (first use in this function)

this seems to be a linux toy. irix doesn't have SIOCGIFHWADDR and neither do freebsd or solaris.
funny tho that they do have linux checks but it seems not at the right places :P

Just a FYI, minidlna isn't very useful on anything but linux because they rely solely on inotify to find new files other than an initial, hideously slow, filesystem traversal. I had some mind to hack together a kqueue module for usage on *BSD but I lack in time and energy. I don't even know if IRIX has any kind of equivalent other than plugging into fam.

Is there a better DLNA server you'd recommend, duck? This one seems to serve video files to my PS3 well enough. The FreeBSD port (minidlna-1.1.0,1) includes the config directive "inotify=yes" by default, for whatever that's worth...

eg. MediaTomb, i tried to compile too without success. http://mediatomb.cc/

I using PyMeds http://resnet.uoregon.edu/~gurney_j/jmpc/pymeds.html on my O2, a DLNA server written in python, works but has a very limited functionality. After some little modification capable to serv HD .mkv movies to my Panasonic TV.

Is it possible to port MediaTomb to Irix?

Looks like it could be persuaded to work with IRIX... never tried myself anyway:

I would really love to see:
A newer webbrowser than Firefox 3. Maybe something webkit-based?

Also a newer office suite than OpenOffice 1 would be great. What about Libreoffice?

Another really great thing to port would be the Telegram messenger (Source Code available here: https://github.com/telegramdesktop/tdesktop). Especially this one would be really really great to have on my Octane.

Thanks if something of it is possible!

Open Office was a major major project. The one we have only happened because SGI paid for it. Just building the thing took something like eight hours on a 16p Origin.

I have no idea why it's such a problem but there are threads here about it. Search button is up and to the right. One of the people who did Open Office 1.03 used to post here.

You'd be very lucky if one version of FF with a JIT got ported, yet alone a whole different program.

If JVM works well on IRIX, maybe you'll get a newer OpenOffice, but probably not.

Telegram...well maybe that can be ported, but Pavel Durov would probably remove it due to lack of updates in the future, and it may not work for very long due to maintenance concerns.

Or maybe the guy who resigned from his company and blamed the government when he couldn't get his job back from an angry board would keep it, if you're lucky.

Hmm the last commit of Telegram Desktop is only 3 days old, so it seems to be pretty alive. Would be really great if you try to port it. As far as I see it uses QT.
