You need to install the developer foundation and the developer
libraries.  Looks like who installed Irix on that box didn't install
that stuff for some reason.  These are part of the 6.5 base install,
with overalys to update them to later revisions.

Hrm, file daemon maybe?  This is just the pionty-click UI right?  What
if you open a winterm and ls directories?

You want mediarecorder.  If it's not installed on your O2, you'll need
to install it.  Also, if you add the video board (after Irix is
installed), you may need to reconfigure the kernel for the OS to see it.
