New packages in the /beta directory
neko_ffcall-1.10 - function call interfaces in embedded interpreters
neko_black-box-1.4.7 - some kinf of puzzle game
neko_squid-2.6.stable3 - Webproxy and Cache

Updated but also in /beta.
neko_webalizer-2.01-10 - log file analysis program


Some more trouble looking around the corner. The updated neko_openldap doesnt provide the libldap-2.2.so.8 any more. So some apps wont work. From a first look the following packages might be effected by this issue.

neko_evolutiondataserver,
neko_evolutionexchange,
neko_evolution,
neko_postfix,
neko_python_ldap,
neko_samba,
neko_sylpheed_claw
s

If the system runs a recent IRIX version and you have installed "OpenLDAP LDAP server and client tools, 2.2.23" youre safe, because the right version stays in /usr/lib32. This isnt true for people which runs IRIX 6.5.22 on their machines because the OS only comes with "OpenLDAP LDAP server and client tools, 2.1.22" which isnt enough.

neko_fltk-1.1.7-xft.tardist is perfectly stable, and ready to work; already tested building about a dozen and half different sources, and never meet a problem.

On the other hand, neko_fltk-1.1.7+xft.tardist does not works as intended, either using the older/newer libxft on nekoware. The weird thing is, it works perfectly if built agains SGI Freeware libxft.

That's cool and all, but I'm not moving these over until we get a unified version ;)

Sure. Actually we need to have a revised libxft before to reach such stage, since it seems to be producing some crashes at Mozilla too... :?

I just uploaded neko_gaim-2.0.0beta3.1 and the corresponding neko_guifications-2.13beta3.1 to incoming. This should take care of the gaim/msn issue we've been seeing; at least on my boxes it works like a charm :) however, it depends on the glib in beta, so perhaps it'd be best to keep it there til glib also moves.

Great! I've PM'd you the Nekoware login info so you can upload directly to 'beta' in the future.

Do you know what would be awesome...a wrapper to the "install" command that (when invoked by gmake install) would autiomagically create the file databased used by inst. I know it would have issues (i.e. Makefiles that by pass install and do cp/mv commands instead), but wouldn't that be awesome---if install actually installed packages in a managable database at the end of the build. Tardist building would be a no brainer.

new in beta triggered by the neko_openldap update:

neko_postfix-2.3.2.tardist - quite a version bump, works fine for me so far though
neko_sylpheed_claws-1.0.5.tardist still the same version (the gtk 1.x branch is dead :-( ) only rebuilt against the new openldap
neko_sylpheed_claws_gtk2-2.4.0.tardist newest member of the gtk2 branch
neko_libetpan-0.46.tardist multi purpose mail library (needed by claws gtk2)

the .opt subsystem of the previous claws gtk2 packages was accidentally marked as version 6 (instead of 1), hence i decided to mark the new package as version 7 to prevent the .opt subsystem from being declared as downgrade.

I keep being disturbed by the sheer slowness of gtk2 on irix, something is just wrong there. QT blows it away at the same level of questionable eye candy :-|

You are right there. If our gtk2+ is using cairo/glitz which relies on openGL for rendering instead of the software in libXrender, the silly thing should be flying on VPros which have awesome 2D capabilities---blowing away even top of the line nVidia cards on things like pixel readback. I honestly believe digging into the code a bit could dramtically speed up gtk (unless it's some other software inefficiency).

Clonning MIPS/IRIX?

Indeed!; In fact I've wondered at some point if such tool was already present on Nekoware under any strangeous name! :) ...You know, there is such big amount of packages there, that many times I have to check to see what I'm installing! :P

Yup; Nekoware is growing up fast, we have a huge amount of tools already available here, which makes me think if it is not time to bring alive a brand-new company just building Godson-based MIPS/IRIX clones! :shock:
