Software and a Note

Before we head into the software updates for today I want to bring up a couple of things.

E-mail. I enjoy receiving e-mail, but due to the high volume and limited time available to me at the moment, I ask that if you have an IRIX/SGI/computer related question, please post in the forum. You are far more likely to get a response that way. Thanks!

November is the busiest time of the year in my profession hence the website taking a bit of a back seat as a result. I'll try to get a least one software update out per week if at all possible, but otherwise content will be slim. December should be better in that regard.

And with that out of the way, let's move onto the software updates for the week. semi-fly sent in a couple of new tardists, S-Lang 1.4.9 and JED/XJED 0.99.6 (which requires S-Lang).

And from foetz a tardist for XMMS 1.2.8 as well as an updated archive for Pure-FTPd 1.0.16c.


XMMS 1.2.8 (tardist) - 3MB
Pure-FTPd 1.0.16c (archive) - 133KB
S-Lang 1.4.9 (tardist) - 2.9MB
JED/XJED 0.99.6 (tardist) - 4MB

Is there a problem with that XMMS tardist?
I removed the freeware tardist, installed that one, loaded up XMMS (after removing my ~/.xmms to get rid of old settings) and I have no plugins. It lists no input plugins, no output plugins, etc....

Ah hah!
Running strings on the xmms binary shows that it seems to look in /temp/usr/local/lib/xmms instead of /usr/local/lib/xmms...

I have a couple ideas on how to deal with this...first being, well, I just mkdir /temp and ln -s /usr /temp/usr and it worked, but I'm not really happy with that setup...

I may try editing the binary to edit those strings and see how that goes...

just put the plugins into ~/.xmms/Plugins
