Re: IBM 9110-51A as a Linux Workstation

All, My sincere apologies, I missed Shiunbird's excellent YouTube video on installing Debian on his 9111-285 while looking through the posts earlier. :oops: Armed with the video, I was able to get Debian 8.10 powerpc (jessie) loaded and running on my 9110-51A. There are a few different steps related...

IBM 9110-51A as a Linux Workstation

Hi All, It's been a while. I picked up an IBM 9110-51A system with a GTX135P graphics card and I have it running AIX 6.1 with no access to updates, but it runs fine. My question is: should it be possible to get a "recent" version of linux running on this system with a GUI and usable as a w...

Re: O2 IRIX install - 6.5.30 --> 6.5.4

omelett, josehill has a good question, I see this O2 has a modded 600MHz CPU. For the O2 PROM to recognize the RM7000C chip on the CPU board, it has to have a recent enough version of PROM to be used with the SGI made RM7000A 350MHz CPU board. I don't know at what version of PROM the support for the...

Origin 300 with Q-Logic PCI SCSI Card

Hi All, SCSI controller 0 (internal connection) on my O300 has failed, controller 1 (external) works fine. I installed a Q-Logic QLA1080 SCSI card in the top PCI slot, but the PROM doesn't see it at boot up. IRIX sees it (and the attached SCSI CDROM) once I get the system running but this whole affa...

Ian, When you say: ...and I know that some complete systems & parts have occasionally been rescued... and: ...I do know that some Octane Digital Video boards were rescued, probably the odd system... Can you be more specific re: how they were rescued (who and how it was done)? Eau Claire, Wiscons...

Does anyone know if it's possible to run one boinc with two projects (Seti on 3 cpus and Einstein on 3 cpus) at the same time?

khanna,

Can you confirm the link: http://gravity.phy.umassd.edu/~gkhanna/eah-irix.tar.gz is the correct link for the Einstein@home binaries and that this link is working? It seems dead as of 10/27/06 PM CST.

The iMic was as simple as plugging it into the USB hub on my Apple keyboard, autoconfig and restarting the system. There is NO audio in, but the au...
