I’ve recently obtained an old Sun Blade 1000 and was hoping to get Quake III running on it. Found a handy guide to getting this working (http://blog.boreas.ro/2008/01/installing-quake-3-on-solaris-fixing.html) that pointed to the ioquake site to download prebuilt packages.
Of course the binary packages and wiki are temporarily unavailable as explained on the site so I’m at a bit of a loss how to start and have questions.
Does the current code base still build for Solaris 10 running on Ultrasparc IIIcu hardware? Are prebuilt packages still produced for this? Or can an older versions still be downloaded? If it needs building what build tools do I need to install?
Some more hardware details:
CPU: 2 x 1.2Ghz Ultraspace IIIcu
Graphics: Creator3D, Elite3D M6 or XVR-600. Got all 3 cards
Would also be curious to know if there is any chance of running ioquake on Sparc hardwre under Linux, BSD or Illumos. Those run (at least to some extent) on my hardware.
