Re: Sync on green question

O2s are a little odd in that there is a combined sync signal on the DSUB15 connector's green pin (#2) and separate sync signals on the H Sync and V Sync pins (#13 and #14, respectively). It appears that true SOG displays work fine with this setup, while some displays appear to be only SOG "tole...

Re: Fuel hardware aggregator edits ?

Given the interest in the Fuel PSU topic and kubatyszko's particular expertise in the area, I think it may make sense for kubatyszko to start a new thread on the subject, and the mods can make it a sticky topic or promote it to an announcement, like what has been done for the aggregator threads. Thi...

Re: [ebay] SGI ONYX maintenance course binders

Those bring back memories! While I never took the Onyx course, I did take several other courses offered by SGI. Compared with other "pro" level courses I've taken from major hardware manufacturers and software providers, SGI's technical education courses were among the best, if not the bes...

Re: IRIX Source code

HPE sold it's software business to Micro Focus last year: http://www.businessinsider.com/hewlett-packard-enterprise-sells-its-software-business-2016-9 I had the impression that all of SGI's assets, including discontinued software products, like IRIX, remained with HPE's Enterprise group. Is that in...

Re: Wanted: Octane

I think Mashek is around there, but those prices are also pretty high. Doug Mashek, like Ian, sells primarily to commercial customers that still rely on SGI equipment for their work, and so the systems come with more assurance and backing than the systems one typically might find on eBay and craigs...

Re: Octane + Irix 6.5.26 becoming slow

Try adding this line to /etc/resolv.conf : hostresorder local dns You might also try removing the "domain home.local" line, but that's probably not the problem. The resolv.conf and nsswitch.conf files are both intended to configure DNS. resolv.conf is the "old way," while nsswitc...

Re: Octane + Irix 6.5.26 becoming slow

90%+ of the time, this is due to DNS issues. Search nekochan.net for "resolv.conf" to get some ideas. Most of the rest of the time, it is due to something looking for resources on the previous owner's network, like an NFS share. Take a look at the /etc/fstab file and verify that there are ...

Re: OSX Snow Leopard - NTFS Support

Is it possible that the drive is encrypted with Microsoft's Bitlocker? macOS doesn't recognize Bitlocker-encrypted volumes and rather unhelpfully offers to initialize them.

Eclectic Light: "We need to document macOS"

An interesting post about the decline in the quality of Apple's documentation -
