I’ve been working on the SGUG-RSE 0.0.7 Release… SGUG-RSE is the Silicon Graphics User Group RPM Software Env. We have been working for a few years on porting over a modern GNU toolchain for IRIX 6.5.x SGI systems. On Christmas the 7th beta release was announced.

Lots to do to get that ready, promote it and help get SGI users actually upgraded and using it to build more software. There are now over 1000 modern packages (in RPM format) in the 007 release. We have some GTK3 gui apps and are also now working on remote yum repos with local dependency management using the new package tool DNF – the next version of yum for RPM packages.



p.s. also playing with my new M1 Apple MacBook Air. A very cool mac laptop that uses Apple’s ARM cpu and not an Intel cpu.

During this time of year many of us are off work or inside for one reason
or another.
I'm curious what projects everyone is working on.
