a few tardists

Unread postby schleusel » Sat Nov 01, 2003 2:04 pm

Hi,

i've packaged some of of the things i built lately and thought i'd share them:

1. MLDonkey 2.5-4

MLDonkey (http://www.nongnu.org/mldonkey/) is a popular client for several p2p networks. (eDonkey, Fasttrack, BitTorrent, Open Napster, Soulseek, Direct-Connect are activated in this build). Took me quite a while to get it running properly instead of just throwing bus errors all the time but it seems to be quite stable now. You should create some workdir for it inside your home directory and start it from within there to prevent it from dumping all its ini-files directly into your home dir..

http://www.kanera.de/irix/MLDonkey-2.5-4_mips3.tardist (mips3)
needs: fw_gtk+, fw_glib, fw_gettext

2. ObjectiveCaml 3.07 + lablgtk

as MLDonkey is written in ObjectiveCaml (http://caml.inria.fr/), I had to build that one too. Not sure if its of interest to many people but here we go:

http://www.kanera.de/irix/OCaml-3.07_mips3.tardist (mips3, built with gcc 3.3)

3. Sylpheed-Claws 0.9.6

Sylpheed-Claws is the "cutting edge" branch of sylpheed and adds quite a few features the original sylpheed doesn't have yet: http://sylpheed-claws.sourceforge.net/features.php

http://www.kanera.de/irix/Sylpheed-Claws-0.9.6_mips3.tardist (mips3, built with MipsPro 7.4.1m)

compiled with openssl and gnupg support. needs: fw_gettext, fw_glib, fw_gtk+, fw_openssl
I didn't include fw_gnupg as prereq as it still runs without that one (just with disabled gpg support)

4. Lame 3.93.1

Lame (http://lame.sourceforge.net/) is a very powerfull mp3 encoder. I know that there already is a package of that version on nekochan but it still might be of interest to some as its built with MipsPro 7.4.1m and turned out to be a bit faster than the gcc 3.x compiled one:

the gcc build:

Encoding as 44.1 kHz 320 kbps stereo MPEG-1 Layer III (4.4x) qval=2
Frame | CPU time/estim | REAL time/estim | play/CPU | ETA
10062/10064 (100%)| 1:17/ 1:17| 1:27/ 1:27| 3.4065x| 0:00

this one:

Encoding as 44.1 kHz 320 kbps stereo MPEG-1 Layer III (4.4x) qval=2
Frame | CPU time/estim | REAL time/estim | play/CPU | ETA
10062/10064 (100%)| 1:07/ 1:07| 1:16/ 1:16| 3.9207x| 0:00

so it encodes 320kbit/s mp3 at about 4x realtime on r12k-300, not bad :-)

http://www.kanera.de/irix/Lame-3.93.1_mips4.tardist (mips4, built with MipsPro 7.4.1m)

so long,
Timo

Cool... little question though: Did you get sylpheed claws to compile with iconv support? If so, what variables did you set for the build process?

Thanks.

Thanks! Could you add a link to this forum thread for further information?

hmm, it compiled right out of the box with iconv support. What problem are you seeing?

so long,
Timo

I for one am happy to see a faster lame. I wouldn't have thought the compiler differenece would be so pronounced. Thanks!

Hi,

as squeen pointed out, the version reflected by lame tardist was wrong (dumb typo). The packaged version is of course 3.93.1 and not 3.91.1. I renamed the tardist and edited above announcement. Could someone please change the blog entry accordingly?

so long,
Timo

I always tried over and over again to compile sylpheed (not claws) with iconv support, recompiling iconv and gettext from scratch etc. and never got it to work. Strange. Maybe it´s claws.

Getting all your ducks in a row with these tardists can be a real bitch -- I have alot of respect for the SGI freeware voluenteers.

That build of LAME he posted is a MIPS4 binary (r5k, r10k, r12k, etc.). your r4400 is only mips3, and therefore won't be able to run it.

Best option would be find out what he did to compile it and reproduce that work but with -mips3 set instead of -mips4
