Nekoware-mips3

Unread postby nekonoko » Wed Apr 26, 2006 4:28 pm

Well I fired up my old Indigo last weekend after replacing a dead battery. Great machine - but it sure would be nice to have some basic Nekoware stuff (how spoiled I've become!). So I took advantage of the fact we have such a great resource of detailed compilation instructions, patches and complete distribution files and began to "respin" existing Nekoware packages as mips3.

The basic procedure is to do a 'keep *' on a mips4 nekoware package followed by a 'install neko_somepackage.opt.*' to get the goodies needed for a recompile (instructions, source, patches and dist files). All compilation was done on IRIX 6.5.22/MIPSpro 7.4.4m on an Indigo R4400.

It's only been a few days but I've already put together enough to become useful including basic utilities (Perl, Python, Ruby, etc.), fun stuff like dexter1's XMMS and GQMPEG, server goodies like Postfix, BIND9, OpenSSL/OpenSSH and more.

Everything should just work unless I missed stripping out a 'mach' dependency in one of the dist files (got bit by that at the outset). If these packages prove useful to someone, great - if not, hey, I've got some stuff to play with on my Indigo now ;)

Amazing news Neko! ...and I think you'll increase very sensibly the usefulness for MIPS3 boxes! ...It is really great!, I'm sure I'll have good use for these new software collection at some point. Thanks! ;)

What a good idea!

I will probably get an Indy and an Indigo soon. And the box I'm working on quite everyday is a R4400 Indigo2. Do you plan to compile the latest version of rsync too?

I wish we'll have fun with all these boxes sleeping in many corners...

Regards.

It's all a matter of time - I've only been working on this a week now :) I just finished that one today.

If there are any other packages folks want to see sooner than later (provided they're already in standard Nekoware) let me know and I'll try to bump them higher in the priority chain.

Okay, still working on this - 119 packages and counting. Now that I have a lot of the libraries completed the applications are coming along pretty quickly.
