    I built a bunch of stuff via macports and figured i'd share. I didn't see most of these when i did a quick search of the forum. Anyway, most everything is terminal/console based as i like to use less resource hungry software on these old machines. There's a few SDL games, the newest version of pianobar, cmus audio player, elinks text web browser, irssi irc client, nmap port scanner, openssh and some other stuff. Everything will install in to /opt/local to make these easy to remove should you want to. Everything *should* work on Leopard.

    You can browse / download from my google drive here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B0swufWcvcjlMjFYd1lwR2dyXzQ?usp=sharing

    Cheers.

    Do these only work with Macports installed? I've tried a few on my Powerbook that has Macports but still reports missing libraries?

    Which MacPorts version did you use ?

    Well crap... upon looking in any of the packages it seems none of the libs were included in the pkg process. I'm using macports 2.3.4. I just tried using the metapackage switch with streamripper and ended up with a 73mb mpkg. That does not seem right to me. Any ideas?

    Cheers.

    I read the manual and all is well now. I deleted the old downloads and am starting to upload repacked installers. In the upcoming days they should all be repacked and uploaded.

    Cheers.

    Thanks a lot for your time and efforts, out of interest, care to elaborate how you are packaging these builds ?

    Would this be possible for SMTube ( the thread here https://forums.macrumors.com/thread...-for-youview-mactubes-mobile-youtube.2030035/ ) to strip away building it's dependencies or better MacPorts (Xcode) itself ?

    Macports has an option to search all deps required and includes them. So basically all i did was built the stuff i wanted, installed, tested, and repacked them. If you type "sudo port -v mpkg appname" everything required to run the app automatically gets packed with it. It sadly adds some bulk to the package size however.

    Not quite sure i fully understand your second question.

    Cheers

    Well for SMTube to compile from source it it is dependent on qt4-mac which needs to be installed with Macports which itself needs Xcode to be installed.

    If I would build the qt4-mac port and package it , will it run on a system that doesn't have Xcode and Macports installed ?

    If this would be the case, SMTube install would simply be , run qt4-mac installer , copy SMTube.app and done.

    @wicknix You just gave me the best hint to solve the complex install of SMTube, forever in your debt.

    I never realised that when you build a mpkg with Macports , it can install everything without Xcode or Macports needed to be installed also .

    Added another game. Chromium B.S.U, an arcade-style, top-scrolling space shooter.

    Cheers

    These don't work for me, my G3 iBook returns a bad CPU type message - which I guess means G3 isn't supported which is no surprise.
    But on my G4 1.33 iBook, I get the following error:

    Guessing by the timestamps on Google Drive, the ones from 16september including despotify haven't been repackaged yet ?

    On another note, your builds inspired me to compare my built-from-source utilities with the currently available Macports version :
    • Nmap 7.6 is available on Macports, I source-build 5.61 on my PB so will install the Macports version then

    • Metasploit on Macports is only version 3 , I've source-build Metasploit 4.11 a long time ago, current version is 4.14
      (might do a reinstall and do a write-up about it)

    • Kismet on Macports is 2011 but the current web-GUI version is 2017 so I'm going to try and get that one to build and do a write-up about it

    @Dronecatcher, hmmm. Everything uploaded has now been repacked and built on an ibook g4 running leopard. Could you try something else small like say elinks and see what happens? I did try on my other ibook g4 running tiger and nothing seemed to work, but i did try despotify on my powermac g5 running leopard and it worked.

    Cheers.

    Ah, that's it then - my iBook is on Tiger. I'll try on my Leopard machine later :)

    I've been trying to compile Kismet-2016-01-RC1 and the latest Kismet-2017 but to no avail at the moment .

    Kismet-2016-01-RC1 configure stuck on not finding errno.h
    Kismet-2017 configure stuck on not finding libz

    In both cases these files are on my system , installed via Macports.

    But my question for you , how do you get Kismet-2011 running ?

    I can't seem to find where to put the sources or adapt the username for suuid, any idea ?

    I installed Kismet-2011 via Macports on my PB G4 12" .

    Under /opt/local/etc I copied the kismet.conf-dist to kismet.conf and added the following :

    under ncsource
    ncsource=en1 ( which used to be that same as sources=darwin,...)

    I also tried to add

    suiduser=my_username

    but that didn't make any difference.

    If I don't start kismet with sudo kismet , the kismet server won't start and kismet_capture will keep complaining.

    ESC or ~ is your key to toggle into the menus, basically you have to drill down in them , first sort your networks and then you can select one, select it's clients ,etc ...

    When exiting PCAPDUMP files will be in your current directory where you did sudo kismet

    Still have to play around with this since I think tcpdump can do the same without the ncurses Kismet GUI but haven't tried it yet, also didn't try WEP or WPA <unlocking>, ahum.

    I gave up on it for now and just downloaded kismac instead from the wayback machine.

    On another note i've added a few more goodies like mikmod, rdesktop, putty, scrollz (irc client), eggdrop, and youtube-dl.

    Cheers
