which old version of fedora can read a old iRIX XFS filesystem ?


When trying to mount a old SGI IRIX64 XFS filesystem, current Linux
versions complain with:

function not implemented

So you have to use a older Linux version (e.g.

Offering do-anything-swap in exchange to white_dune sponsoring


Cause i can't offer a review-swap (cause i am not in the packager
group), i offer a do-anything-swap in exchange to white_dune fedora

I have some experience in writing C, C++, java, awk, lex/yacc and
shellscript, but i don't have enough time to write a complex 300000
lines program like white_dune from scratch.
Creating a prototype or a add-on would be possible.
Or debugging a big program using gdb on a clear error would be great.
The tasks i worked on are X3D, OpenGL/jogl and numerics, but i would
debug any task...

Added Qt usage example to white_dune


Added a Qt export example to white_dune 1.222 as


So you can click/drag your 3D application part in white_dune
and click/drag your 2D application part in qtcreator/qtdesigner.

A screenshot of the example is here:

white_dune has no sponsoring for fedora, but you can always use the

Added simple 3D game to wdune opengl_examples subpackage


I added the VRML97 based "Tux warbird" 3D game to the white_dune
This adds C++ code to the VRML-Script nodes in a way that makes it
possible to still
use warbird.wrl in a VRML97 browser like FreeWRL or (webgl based) firefox.
The resulting interactive binary only links glut, OpenGL libs, libpng
and libjpeg.
This is usefull, if you have no VRML/X3D browser (default in fedora) or
no connection
to the internet.

The white_dune package is still missing sponsoring...

If you want to test the binary, you need to ins

review request: vcglib


I entered a review request for the vcglib library.

<a href="" title=""></a>

Despite it's name, this is not a real .a/.so library.
It is just a huge collection of C++ header files.

Unfortunatly i can not offer a official review swap, cause i am not in
the packager group.

A package, that requires this library is wdune

Why no wdune sponsoring ?


Are there any tips how to get wdune fedora sponsoring ?

We are working years on free software, but the distributors simply
ignore it
(or worse) use a more than 10 years old version (like in debian/ubuntu) 8-(

What is wrong with wdune ?

It uses old technologies like motif or X3D.
Motif has the advantage that the 2D-GUI did not change over the years
(a lot of interesting software under Linux died from changing versions of
QT or gtk for example).
X3D has been superseded by webgl, but X3D can be displayed via webgl
(X_ITE or x3dom).

What need to be done, to bring wdune to fedora ?
If i g

Who is the fedora sponsor for aqsis ?


Still searching for a wdune fedora sponsor.
Who is the fedora sponsor for aqsis ?
wdune (white_dune) can convert VRML/X3D to a RIB file, which can
be used with aqsis to create images (the images can be concatinated
to build a movie).

Introducing white_dune


Cause wdune/white_dune still needs sponsoring, i need to indroduce it.

white_dune is a graphical VRML97/X3D editor, simple 3D modeller,
animation tool, and VRML97/X3DV commandline compiler in development.

With white_dune you can create/change 3D objects and animate them
(in a easy way if you choose the -4kids GUI).
The result can be shown in any webgl enabled web browser or can be
converted to the RIB format for movie creation.

The 3D Modelling features are NURBS, Subdivison, Extrude face,
convex hull, skin and bones (via the HAnim X3D nodes),
Constructive Solid Geometry and Superformu
