    Default SGI Octane - TAG

    This is a post from my SGI Octane using SGI Netscape, the
    same one I have been working on lately. I am working to make
    it as useable as possible within the boundaries of the IRIX
    OS 6.5.x. I am currently installing freeware that I have
    found, in the background. This is a 64-bit system, pretty
    slick for the time.

    Some good stuff, not all works but no major show stoppers.

    If you can find what remains of the Nekoware repository (it might be archived on irix.cc) there is a ton of precompiled software you could get.
    Before Nekochan shutdown there was still a fairly active development pool.

    No idea, but there seems to be a .ZIP file that's 25+ GB on archive.org in this listing:

    https://archive.org/download/ftp.nek...irrors.2013.09

    Not sure if that has what people are looking for or not, but I'll download it later and have a sniff.

    Website went offline a month or so ago. The administrator was giving signs he was getting tired of hosting it and wasn't looking to pass the torch.
    If you can't find an archive of it, it's gone.

    If you're able to find what's left of nekoware, there's a Firefox 3.0.19 build that's serviceable. It runs well enough on my Fuel, though my Fuel has a 900MHz CPU, so.
