Re: Acclaim Entertainment / Probe Software Indy w/Nichimen N-World 3.1, Soccer Mocap

Still trying to decide whether to keep or sell the one with a licensed copy of Alias Wavefront. I have a licensed Indigo2 PowerAnimator 8.1 system complete with box/docs/manuals, alias mousepad and crypto keys - I was going to list it on ebay but the more I thought about it the more it seemed to me...

Re: Free: SGI 20" CRT Trinitron Monitor GDM-20E21 - New York

I literally had 4 of these monitors and maybe 4 of the ones with a remote - forget the model, both SGI and SUN branded. I really regret throwing them into a dumpster. It was late 2000's, I fell off from SGI's/SUNS and they were taking up my entire attic, and I mistakenly thought plasmas/LCD/LED scre...

Re: Irix 5.3 Variants

Re: slow Octane interface speed

i do believe the clone drive rebuilt/autoconfig'd at some point - I didn't use the network until a I swapped the original and clone a few times

Re: slow Octane interface speed

I think they should all be original SGI cards. From my understanding the original discreet Octane had a SGI branded card that was using the eg0 driver, my current octane has a SGI branded card using the tg1 driver. I don't have access to the original discreet octane anymore.

Re: slow Octane interface speed

I did a clean install on the octane - that's the original disk - I get good network speeds when I use the native disk. I got my hands on a discreet octane and I cloned that disk, when I put that cloned disk into my current octane its having a really hard time with speeds. I know some discreet instal...

Re: slow Octane interface speed

the original workstation had a eg0 interface, my current workstation has a tg1 interface. I checked for jumbo frames but it is not configured for either eg0 or tg1. I'm still digging but it sure is strange. I also compared /etc/config/tgconfig.options on both disks - they are the same, and the TCP b...

slow Octane interface speed

I had an octane with a 1GigE card - I cloned the disk. It was *blazing* fast. easily > 10Mb/s I put the cloned disk in another octane with a different 1GigE card - it runs painfully slow. ~ 200kb/s ifconfig -va shows me its 1000Mb/s full-duplex. If I pop a different IRIX disk into the Octane I get r...
