Re: Before I trash 3 quad Origin 300s...

Hey jwhat, You're most welcome! I'm glad someone is putting it to use. All of the variations of the R-Bricks/NumaLink Modules/Etc I've seen for the 3 series Origin systems also have serial number based security. The brick basically learns the serial the first time it's plugged in then won't allow yo...

Re: Before I trash 3 quad Origin 300s...

Doh. :-( I wonder if there's another model that would be compatible. I expect that someone would have to spend a fair amount of time digging through spec sheets to figure that out....or harvest the chips from dead boxes. SGI's can't be the only application for these.

Re: Looking for 1MB or larger 30-pin SIMMs - SF Bay Area

Apologies for the slow reply. Work and life got in the way. I so far have not run across any, which is weird since I had bags of it at one point. It's possible I got rid of them since long ago since I haven't had any machines that would use it in a very very long time. I'll keep my eyes open...even ...

Re: Before I trash 3 quad Origin 300s...

Note that, I should have been more clear in the first paragraph. You will likely need to reset the router *first* to match your serial numbers. I suggest using the one from the O350 that has the Base-IO board in it. Set that one to rack 1, node 1, then set the L2 to match that serial number (before ...

Re: Before I trash 3 quad Origin 300s...

Jwhat, As the person who discovered & documented much of this initially, I can tell you that you're on the right track. In general, the chip swap (or initialization if you're electronically inclined) at any level of the setup should fix your issues, but order matters. Do you have an L2 controlle...

Re: Looking for 1MB or larger 30-pin SIMMs - SF Bay Area

This should probably be in hardware wanted. Either way, I'm pretty sure I have a good size box of those things floating around still.

Let me look and I'll get back to you. How many do you need?

Re: Origin 350 serial number disaster/*WANTED: L3 Software files

IIRC, the last version of Red Hat this actually worked in out of the box was 9 (codename Shrike). I gave up on it long ago because I found it more useful to have a real (hardware) L2 controller, but this may or may not make sense in your use case.

Re: Wanted: Octane

You might also consider that if you want to run BSD on Octane...OpenBSD already supports it and many of the other newer systems (either to run or to use the source code as a reference for your NetBSD work). I've paid as little as $30 (plus shipping of course) for decent Octanes on ebay...keep your e...

Re: Origin 3200 Power Supply

For what it's worth, my larger systems seem to be much happier on 220 (and cheaper to run). So if you have the ability, it's worth the electrical work.

Re: Onyx Problems, seemingly power related

Probably unrelated, but for *other* reasons do make sure that your power supply isn't one of the recalled ones...

I think the only safe part number is 060-0120-001....anything else is a serious fire hazard.

Re: Q: Octane DIVO GALILEO15?

Did you guys ever get reliable capture out of the DIVO-DVC in the octane?

If so what software are you using?
