i reinstalled the machine from scratch a few days ago (6.5.27m) as i
got a faster CPU in it (it now is a R12k/400 with 2MByte cache -- nice
for pkgcomp i guess ;) and gave it another try:
* installed IRIX 6.5.27m from scratch
* installed patches and cvs, gcc
* just out of curiosity built OpenSSL 0.9.7f (IIRC) and OpenSSH 4 as
well as GnuPG 1.4.0 -- it just worked (TM)!
* checked out pkgsrc and bootstrapped it (it worked as always up til
* tried to build sth from pkgsrc -- now it *loops*. yes, it loops. i'll
provide an example of this tomorrow or so.
however, now going to the main point of my email:
i'd really like to contribute to the IRIX side of pkgsrc, but to do so
i have to be able to run it...
is there any volunteer to have a peek on my machine? the machine is
accessable from the net when it's up and running...
i'll provide account information -- please (privately) mail me. tia!
