I'd love to see a newer Amiga emulator ported. There's a very old version of UAE floating around, but it's quite dated and simple by today's standards (no real fullscreen support, and tweakable options are limited).

I wonder how easy it'd be to compile PUAE under IRIX. The source is here: https://github.com/voorhees1979/PUAE

I keep meaning to have a quick try myself, but haven't found the time yet. That and my porting skills are practically zero :(

Is Allegro available for Irix? 'Cause if it is, when I get an SGI system, I'd port Hi65, my very own Commodore 65 emulator. Yes, that's 65, not 64. ;-)

EDIT: Allegro is available for Irix! http://liballeg.org/stabledocs/en/build ... ix%20Notes

An updated version of Pidigin would be nice. Quite a few protocols don't work anymore (or obsolete) in the current Nekoware version.

Urgh, means i have to get my gear re-sorted for some nekoware development magic :|

Above all, some dedicated time to do this would be awesome. I have transferred many systems to my home address, I just need to choose the system and get the proper tools installed.

A friend of mine made a little tetris game back when we were in school (many years ago), uses ncurses so I don't think it would be too difficult...

Fix the Duke Nukem 3D port. Tested it last night. It crashes with some sort of overrun error.

The only despotify audio subsystems which have IRIX support is libao and gstreamer and these are old ports, which is meh.

Oh another one (my perl still doesn't work) but if it did the Philips hue smart lighting control app http://www.floodgap.com/software/huepl/

I've got google home controlling sockets /outlets plus lighting . Would be great to be able to script things to control lights and the smarterthings electrical outlets via irix
