any chance of firefox 1.5.0.6?

Unread postby jackwhowarth » Mon Aug 21, 2006 9:49 am

I noticed that the mips3 build of firefox was still the ancient alpha 2 release. Is there any chance we could get a mips3 build of the same firefox 1.5.0.6 which was recently release for mips4? Thanks in advance.

neko_firefox-mips3 is version 1.5 (release), not an alpha. It identifies itself as "Deer Park" as the MOZILLA_OFFICIAL 1 flag is not set, but this is the same situation as 1.5.0.6.

I was confuised that the DeerPark alpha 2 page came up as the default home page. I don't quite see why you bother setting the offical mozilla flag to zero. Distributions like RedHat heavily patch mozilla and firefox and I don't believe they bother doing that.

I didn't set it to zero - it's just not set to anything.

I have installed all of your packages on my indy. The new openssh/ssl works as expected and chkconfig is now turned off but it looks like neko_ntpd is turn on :)

Hello Neko,
What is happening with the porting of your Irix 6.5 mips3 packages ? Have you changed the downloaded directory ?

If you start building packages the first priority should be the samba and a config tool (like swat) for it and maybe the spreadsheet "Gnumeric" and a word processor like abiword. Thanks

I just don't have time to do anything with the mips3 Nekoware at the moment (perhaps this summer). Maybe someone else will pick it up.

There's already a Samba in nekoware-mips3; if you can't get swat working just configure it manually - it's not that hard.

Is it difficult for a mips4 package to be converted to work with mips3 processors ?

They have to be recompiled and repackaged which is time consuming.

Ok, the good point is that we have an Internet Browser (FireFox) for our mips3 on Irix 6.5, but we are still far from mips4 dists.

Is it possible to bring to the light some more packages for mips3, when you find some time Neko ?

First let me thank you for all your hard work getting the MIPS3 packages built and out there for use. I really appreciate all the work you have invested. Especially since i have had an issue on an Indigo2 running 6.5.14m R4.4K 200MHZ IP22 with 320M RAM. The 'standard' supported version of Netscape Communicator does NOT support javascript (2?) at all - throws all kinds of errors on something simple like cnn.com. So i was looking for a firefox package - and stumbled upon your MIPS3 builds - perfect i thought, this outta do it. So, i grabbed the firefox-1.5.0.7 and its dependencies (expat, gettext, glib1,gtk1,iconv) and installed them all with no problems. Now when i go to run /usr/nekoware/bin/firefox it dumps core (moz_run_program[36]: 2006 Trace/BPT trap(coredump)). Can anyone assist me in debugging this little bugger? TIA!!!!

You need 6.5.21 or better when you would like to use nekoware. You can download a .22 overlay from sgi.com for free.

ARRGGGG i was hoping that wasnt the answer for the MIPS3 stuff, becuase this is a machine that a staff member uses for some crystallography stuff and another 3d app. and i am unsure his software would run under .22. Is that your final answer, LOL???

I´am not joking.

Somewhere there are some information how to get some packages working on older irix version.
