hello  ;D

Non-Windows Software / Re: Multics simulator 1.0 is released
« on: November 16, 2018, 06:07 PM »
This is neat!
I ran multics in dps8m before - works surprisingly well.

Obviously you need these :

These are great! Makes me want to play something like fsx again!

Easily one of the best DC threads ever :)
ADS looks awesome!
This really makes me want to fix the old luggable I have laying around so we can play this in all it's original glory :)

The RH article has a nice summary of possible attack vectors:

Good job!

In many projects, the plugin-system is the last thing to be designed -- something glued on top that would let plugins add features.  I take the opposite approach here, and put the extension system at the foundation.

I think this is wise.

If you're interested in rediscovery:

On Gentoo you can do something like this to find all binaries in all installed packages

for pkg in `eix -I --only-names`; do echo -e "$pkg : \n"; (equery files $pkg | grep -i 'bin/'); done

It produces something like:

app-accessibility/espeak :

app-accessibility/festival :

app-accessibility/flite :

I imagine other package managers have similar ways of doing stuff like that.
You can get pretty creative with these things in order to produce something searchable or generate menu's.

I personally bind keys to launch my most used applications. (It helps I have a keyboard with extra keys)

For anything else I use dmenu-launch which for me is good enough.

For other search specific thingies I prefer small utilities I can fire off in a terminal and pipe to whatever I need rather than a monolithic gui app anyway :)

You also have to make sure the dt folder is in your path. eg:

PATH="$PATH:/usr/dt/bin" startx /usr/dt/bin/Xsession

There is a guide for FreeBSD here: http://sourceforge.n...v/wiki/FreeBSDBuild/

I failed to start it.
You should be able to. I know it runs fine on FreeBSD.
It is rather picky about certain things. For example, it won't start if your system hostname is not correctly in your /etc/hosts

Is that good or bad?

Quote from wikipedia:

FreeRDP was forked in 2009 from rdesktop with the aim of modularizing the code, addressing various issues, and implementing new features.

So presumably it will include bugfixes and new features compared to rdesktop-based stuff. That is good.
It is relatively new and many popular distro's might not include it in their repositories yet. That could be bad if you care about that. (but is a temporary situation)

I want a FreeBSD section.
You can also post about FreeBSD in this section.
I tried to tell mouser that writing that this section is for "Linux" and whatever else he has listed is a bad idea, but he tends to ignore my advise :)

I haven't tried OpenCDE but I have tried the actual CDE port to GNU+Linux.

The sourcecode for CDE has been released a while back, which has prompted some people to start porting it.
OpenCDE predates the opening of the actual CDE code iirc.

The source can be had here: http://sourceforge.n...code/ci/master/tree/

The porting to non-solaris platforms is still in a 'beta' stage, but it should be usable.

Non-Windows Software / Re: Remmina - superb remote access client
« on: August 30, 2013, 05:28 PM »
Evidently Remmina uses the FreeRDP library, unlike most others which invoke rdesktop (which does it's own implementation).

Nice find.

In case any one wants to compare with the gnome and kde default ones:

poorly secured access points - which is what I've been asked to help them with.
Since most wireless authentication schemes can be cracked in minutes with a bit of hardware, you're probably better of just running an ipsec vpn on top of it or something in order to access the network :D

Come on gothic, there's plenty of room for everyone.

Actually, as it stands now on most of the unmoderated internet, there isn't.
Postings related to popular technologies and platforms drive out the more obscure things (which is logical because they are popular).
The problem with this is that there is no place for people who are actually interested in these obscure things.
When anything is allowed, the "wisdom" of crowds governs, which in practice drives everything towards monoculture.

I'm kind of hoping this forum section doesn't get hijacked by the tablet/phone crowd :(

Non-Windows Software / The comprehensive IRIX audio software list
« on: August 30, 2013, 10:44 AM »
Many old IRIX workstations still make a pretty decent audio workstation today.

The SGI Octane for example, has a mere 3ms audio input-to-output latency out of the box, and they come with Alesis ADAT 8-channel, 24-bit optical ports are built-in, along with S/PDIF or AES/EBU optical and coaxial ports.

On top of that, there is quite a big list of audio software for the platform out there, many of it still relevant and very usable today. By default Irix comes with a pretty decent mutitrack recording program. Hunting down all the Irix audio software is a bit tricky. Whomever said nothing ever gets deleted from the internet obviously never has researched old obscure stuff :)

There's a list on sgi's old ftp that's rotting away. It is ridden with broken links and it's own pages don't even link to one another correctly anymore, and I have a feeling one of these days it's going to just vanish completely as SGI/rackable is dropping it's legacy IRIX support this year.

So I started copying the list and reformatting it on the reddit /r/IRIX subreddit wiki:

There's some pretty fascinating software in that list.

Now using fluxbox, thanks to Gothi[c]'s tiling patch (ArrangeWindowsStack*).

Patch is now officially in fluxbox :) Grab the git version and you'll have it included.

The lengths you will go to just to get me to post... :D

Non-Windows Software / Screenshot thread!
« on: August 30, 2013, 10:22 AM »
So, here's a thread to kick off this new section. Post your OS screenshots! Use GNU+Linux, HP-UX, Plan9, z/OS, GCOS, MCP, *BSD, anything else? Share what it looks like! :)
Here's my humble contribution:


Fresh install on an Indigo2:


Screenshots from my octane:




4DWM running on GNU+Linux through X11 forwarding over SSH:


Fluxbox window manager on GNU+Linux:



Fresh install of Solaris 10 booted in CDE:


After some time messing with it, this is what it looks like now:

That 'last' page was intended to be first, as a message header/intro.
It's not really encoded at all.
I'm sure someone will figure it out :D
