I think the best bet is for you to acquire another SGI machine, unfortunately. There are several MIPS emulators but none are at a state where they can yet run IRIX. Available emulators include: GXemul Qemu

You can simply mount to ISO file to a loopback device and edit the files. Since you are only changing a firmware file you would not need to rebuild the ISO after the change. mount -o loop -t iso9660 filename.iso /mnt/iso You only need to rebuild the ISO if you change something in the boot record.

You have installed Python packages that are more recent than what your distribution provides. For example, you have python version 2.7.10-1 installed but your distribution only has version 2.7.5-5ubuntu3. APT doesn't downgrade packages unless explicitly told to do so. So for example if you try to install a package that depends on the exact version of ...

You can try to find older version of these packages and install it manually by dpkg -i packagename to decrease dependencies list and, probably, decrease potential thread to your system.

To "install" a binary compiled from source the best-practice would be to put it under the directory: /usr/local/bin On some systems that path is already in your PATH variable, if not you can add it by adapting the PATH variable in one of your profile configuration files ~/.bashrc ~/.profile PATH=${PATH}:/usr/local/bin dd is a low level copy tool that ...

Install copies files with the default mode 755. Install can be configured to set the owner or group of a file and/or the mode of a file. Install can be configured to backup the original file before it is replaced.

You are missing a library called ncurses which is used by your application. Just install it with sudo yum install ncurses ncurses-devel As your are building it from sources, you'll need to satisfy the dependencies yourself. That's what rpm packages are meant for : listing dependencies, resolving and installing them so the requested package will work. Edit: ...

Just get activation code for SLES 12 and use it for SLES 11 SP4(this method doesn't work to SLES 11 SP3). You will not get an activation code for SP4 in the process of its download - you will see this screen instead of this:

Sure. Download the RPMs from http://mirror.centos.org/centos-7/7/os/x86_64/Packages/ and install those with yum. Either mirror the whole thing (easiest, really!) or pull down the various dependencies as needed. You could replicate your secure system on a machine that can access the net, yum install gcc (or yum groupinstall the development group), and then ...

Take a look at m4 macro language and its usage in tools like autoconf. It may be a right solution for you. You can prepare some archive or directory, then unpack it in the install phase and after unpacking add missing things. (I know it's similar to cp)

Each distribution or distribution family has its own package management programs. Package management is one of the main differentiators between distribution families. Debian and derivatives (Ubuntu, Linux Mint, elementary OS, Raspbian, etc.) use two program families to manage programs: dpkg as the low-level package management tool, handling commands such ...

The answer here is very simple, from a terminal. sudo apt-get install dropbox If root, apt-get install dropbox I just did this 2 days ago when I installed Mint 17.2 Rafaela Cinnamon x64. Note, previously I used 17.1 Rebecca Xfce x86 and the terminal command was exactly the same. This is the answer to your post title. Once this install was complete, ...

If you'd like to package your application for installation on Debian systems, your best starting point is the dh-python package. You may also find the Debian Python FAQ, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Packaging and the Python distutils useful references.

AFAIK you'll need to check manually if an update is available and, if you want it, manually uninstall the old version and download + install the new one. It's clearly more cumbersome a process than installing packages via apt-get, which also allows you to easily solve dependencies and do updates. However, there are a few advantages: You can compile with ...

Don't take ownership of /usr/local. Use sudo to install software. But use your own account to build it. git clone … # or tar -x or … cd … ./configure make sudo make install Why not take ownership of /usr/local? You nailed it. That would allow any program running on your account to write there. Against a malicious program, you've lost anyway — infecting ...

Most build systems honor --prefix=$path where /usr/local is usually the default. So normally you build + test + install, where the build + test step can occur anywhere you have write permission + the install step is usually... sudo make install (installs into --prefix) One way to setup your build environment is to have a build directory with a work + ...

Approaches There are 2 approaches to this solution. /usr/local/{src,bin} is for custom built software installed by the System Admin, ie, root, in which case sudo or su - should always be used, making this question a moot point. Install pre-compiled binary updates, i.e those found in your distributions package management mechanism, but unsupported versions ...

The add-apt-repository command is part of the software-properties-common package in Debian 8.x (jessie). Once you've installed software-properties-common, you'll have add-apt-repository available and you can use it to add PPA repositories. Note: Be sure that the packages you're installing are compatible with Debian. If the packages are only available for ...

The ./configure and make steps that you are referring to are only necessary when software is supplied as source code. In the case of pycharm, it is provided as a pre-built executable.

I believe you can check what has been installed or uninstalled etc via the aptitude logs. You will need to be root or use sudo to view the log files. You can check the logs using this command: sudo cat /var/log/apt/term.log For long log files u can pipe to more like this: sudo cat /var/log/apt/term.log | more Then you can use space bar to page down, ...

You need some ext parition because it is the only option that supports unix privileges, especially important is files execution 'flag'. It's better to make data partition with ext4 and install driver (like Ext2Fsd) on windows to support it.

The main idea is to use aptitude and its larger options. The answer follows this one on ubuntuforums.

If you know part of the name of a file you installed, e.g. studio, you can run locate studio The locate command finds files whose name contains the specified string. It uses an index which is updated every night (in a typical configuration; the index is updated by a cron job that calls updatedb with appropriate parameters), so you won't be able to locate ...

Ok, I figured it out. Thanks for all the help! I will post an answer here for anyone else trying to figure this out: First I ran: sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list to get into my sources.list.

You could try sudo find / -name "studio.*". The way this command works is simple: sudo runs the find command as superuser (supersuser do) so you can check all the directories in the file system including the locked ones. find searches a given location (/ in our case) for a given file or directory. / is the parameter that dictates find where to search (in ...

You have a problem with the priorities of repositories.

There is no Debian version which uses 3.7 (anymore?). When you want to compile for the running kernel, you would need the headers for 3.16. Have you seen https://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary?

Fedora 12 is a bit old but I think you can still do the following: Look in /var/log/secure which has lines for each use of sudo.
