so I'm trying to compile nedit 5.7 and it turns out I don't have the needed Xm/Xm.h header (and I assume I'm missing the other Motif headers if there are more) - did I miss these somewhere?  I could have sworn I installed any and all dev headers and libraries that came with IRIX.  What am I missing here?

I see that I can probably use a free alternative to Motif called LessTif, but I would really like to get to the bottom of what I'm missing via Motif first

First of all, hello! Glad to see someone's trying to create something to replace the fallen Nekochan. I'd been a member over there for many years; truly sad to see it go, or at least disappear.

Second, I'd had a question that someone here might be able to answer:

I recently obtained a 73GB FC-AL drive for use with a Sun Blade 1000 workstation; however, in order to load Solaris onto the drive, I need to be able to format it. As this is the only computer I own with FC-AL capabilities, it's about the only machine on which I can attempt this format. Auto-configure does not work; thus, I require the physical topology --- cylinders, heads, etc. --- in order to format the drive. I've searched the internet, and can't seem to find any such relevant information.

The drive was manufactured specifically for Sun machines by Fujitsu; it's listed as a SUN72G type drive, model MAT3073FC (alternately just MAT3073F), Sun part number 390-0166-02. 10K RPM.

Anybody out there who might be able to help me with this?

Today I installed Ioquake3 on my Tezro and these are the results:

The video is a bit long, as it covers three of the levels and I'm rather unpracticed when it comes to games! (It does give you an idea of the machines performance though.)

These were the settings used:

Hi all,

Recently I picked up a WYSE 150 terminal like I used to use at work back in the 90s.
I used them alot, but I never had to actually set one up and get it to connect to the SGI.
I especially want to use it as a PROM front end to the Tezro.

Ive set all the ANSI/baud/bit settings but I cant figure out how to actually get it to connect to the SGI. They are hooked together by a DB9 null cable (is that even right?). If anyone has advice I'd welcome it.

What is the best way to do this instead of reinstalling everything’s no from scratch.

I have been googling for weeks now trying to find books or tutorials for old irix software.
The one I'm trying now is Houdini. But it's hard. So now I'm thinking to start this thread where people can post names of books yo may buy on eBay and such sites. Maybe there is links for old tutorials. It would be nice to create some library of ebooks about different irix software.
Maby somone is already sitting on a large collection.

sybex - maya. secrets of the pros
Graphics - Maya 1 Learning Book
art_of_maya 4ed

The Magic Of Houdini (This one seems to be the one closest to 6.5 version on irix)

More book names from members.

Maya 5 Fundamentals, New Riders
Inside Maya, New Riders
Maya 4 Sketches (german), dpi
Maya 6 Killertips, New Riders
Learning Maya 5 Dynamics, Sybex
Learning Maya 5 Rendering, Sybex
Learning Maya 5 Foundation, Sybil

I know that Nekochan is now long gone and it feels terribly far fetched to ever see it live again, but why not continue on the Nekoware legacy and port software within the Nekoware environment so to say? There's plenty of stuff ported already, so why start all over again with irisware? Especially since we're not terribly many here (yet).

I don't mean to be negative or bash a very good initiative (the continuation of porting software to IRIX), I just want to bring this issue to light so to say.

I have a question about IO4 board and relation of IO4 and graphics subsystem. There were several types of IO4 boards; for example:

  • 030-0815-00x
  • 030-0646-107
On this site there is written that only the 030-0815-00x supports IR graphics.

Does anyone know know what is the connection between the IO4 board and graphics and what is the reason why other IO4 boards don't support IR graphics?

Does anyone know know if on the IO4 boards any system configuration data and/or serial number is stored?
