Quote from: "kb7sqi"Hi Jam, Welcome to the forums!
Quote from: "kb7sqi" Something like pkgsrc for NEXTSTEP/OPENSTEP would be great, but the problem is how bad/out dated the *BSD core is are based on BSD4.3.
Quote from: "kb7sqi"NEXTSTEP/OPENSTEP The POSIX situation is pretty sad also. ;-) It's broken/buggy.
QuoteNow saying all that, is it possible to get stuff to compile? Sure, I compile stuff all the time. :lol: Some stuff will compile pretty easily, but most take some work. Sometimes it's simple as adding a few #defines to the source, etc. Other times, it can be a major pain in the *ss. It all depends on what you're trying to compile. I still compile stuff because I still enjoy it & I hate seeing a good NeXT system go to waste. ;-)
QuoteIf you have NEXTSTEP 3.3 User installed, you still need the 3.3 Developer to be able to compile anything. The Developer CD contains all the system headers, compiler, libraries, etc. Once you have that installed, then it's true, you can use a newer port of egcs/gcc upto 2.95.3. That's the last compiler that supports NEXTSTEP/OPENSTEP. Personally I try to stick to the stock compilers that comes w/ NEXTSTEP 3.3, which is NeXT's version of gcc-2.5.8. Yeah, it's old! :-) The compiler that comes w/ OPENSTEP 4.2 is 188.8.131.52. Why stick to the stock compilers? Well, that way you can compile software triple/quad fat!
QuoteIf you start working on elinks & need help feel free to ask. Hope that helps. Take care.
Quote from: "kb7sqi"Wow, it's hard to believe it's been since Sept, since I updated this thread. :-( Anyway, as promised, I had some free time yesterday/today & had a chance to compile the latest version of OpenSSL-0.9.8j. This was a security update. So, I didn't want to wait till the end of the month. So, here's the updates/re-compiles against the lastest version. :-) More to come as time permits:openssl-0.9.8j-zlib-1.2.3.combo package openssl-3.6.1p2apache-1.3.41climm-0.6.3fetchmail-5.9.13links-2.1pre19msmtp-1.4.17 <-- updated package as well.stunnel-4.26 <-- updated package as well.Everything is in the packages directory & compiled quad-fat like always. And like the last version of OpenSSL I compiled, it's compiled against zlib-1.2.3. So if you want to compile something against it, you have to link against -lz as well in /usr/local/lib. :-) Enjoy. I hope everyone had a great holiday season. Take care.
Quote from: "kb7sqi"Hi all, I know there's a few ICQ users here so I need your help especially if you're over in Europe. :-) Can you give the new climm-0.6.4 package a try & see if your user lists are showing up properly while using the program. The reason I'm asking is because I know linmag7 has been having problems w/ the last version 0.6.3, but I'm pretty sure this is because of some changes that deal w/ ICQ. Anyway, my list of ICQ users is pretty small these days & I didn't see anyone on now here @ 04:30 this morning. The new version is compiled quad fat like always & in the normal packages directory. Thanks for testing. Take care!
