    Why has R4x00 (MIPS3) binaries been left out :-( ? Too sluggish?

    It runs *ok* on an Indy R5000. Startup time is a bit long, but once
    the app is up and running, it is easily responsive enough for most
    things.

  5. Re: SGI's OpenOffice build now available

    It looks like this is only for 6.5. Are there any binaries out there for
    6.2?

    None that i knew of. I also doubt that porting the source (even though it is
    already ported to 6.5) to 6.2 is an easy task (especially due to the lack of
    Java2).

    So all you can do is stick with WordPerfect, Adobe Illustrator, Showcase, Ted,
    Siag Office, Gimp, Xess, ... to build your own OfficeSuite on 6.2.

    Possibly because it was built on a mips-4 system and the compiler
    defaulted to using that.

    I've always found it annoying that the compiler.defaults file
    defaults to values related to the system it is installed on rather than
    using a reasonable HCF of Irix systems. It gives the impression that
    SGI expect people to compile the same things on each individual system
    rather than use NFS.

    DId you see that?

    They needed a 32 CPUs machine to achieve a reasonable compile time : 8
    hours....

  9. Re: SGI's OpenOffice build now available

    Victor said ``well under 8 hours''. dmake (the openoffice build tool)
    isn't so good at spawning multiple compiler processes (like smake, or
    gmake to an extent). The first time I built OpenOffice it was on an old
    Origin300, and using one CPU it probably took about 8 hours (so it's not
    like our machines are slow).
    I wasn't involved with building OpenOffice from scratch after that
    (only the UNO bridges stuff I wrote), so I don't know how long it took
    when multiple compiler processes were invoked on the 32P build
    machine (if it's the one I think, then it has 400Mhz processors).

    Cheers,

    Ralph

    ....did anyone install this on a Indigo2 R10kMI yet?

    i put it on an r10k-195 O2. it takes nearly 85meg just to startup.
    i doubt i'll ever use it, i have a perfectly good peecee that does
    a better job that openoffice ever will.

    I've used it on my R10K/195 Indigo2 at home... it's faster and more
    stable than I had expected (which isn't saying much). Very usable on
    R10K Indigo2 or Octane if you have enough RAM. Lots of features and
    folks claim the import/export filters aren't half bad. Pretty nice for
    the price! Sadly, I doubt OO will ever be zippy enough to run well on
    an R5K Indy or O2.

    Doesn't make much difference to me either way, though... I use Ted for
    my fancy word processing. (Available at http://freeware.sgi.com or via
    "swmgr -f http://freeware.sgi.com/Inst/")

    On my R10K O2 (195 MHZ, 256 Mbytes) OpenOffice is quite reasonable.
    Longish startup time but once it's running very responsive.
    Unlike mozilla.
