Re: Is it Solaris 1.0 ?

Yeah. I have the 1.0.1 disc, which is, as you say, 4.1.2 + OW v2.(something). I haven't personally seen a 1.0; 4.1.1_U1 seems like the right SunOS release. OpenWindows was unbundled for SunOS 4, except with Solaris 1.x. I'd say if your disc has any version of OpenWindows on it, it probably is an ima...

Re: Is it Solaris 1.0 ?

Solaris 1.x is a marketing name for bundled SunOS 4.x + OpenWindows. SunOS 5 wasn't sold separately from Solaris 2.

I'm not sure what the question is?

Re: As400 license

That's not really where I was going with that. The reseller for example may accept a photo from you of the serial number plate and a handwritten sign or something along those lines as proof of transfer of ownership (which is all that really needs to be established) and change IBM's records on your b...

Re: As400 license

When I went through this (but before I discovered that my machine was licensed for the untransferable V3R7) they accepted the sales invoice (which included the system's serial number) as proof of transfer of ownership. If you can find a reseller who is willing to talk to you, they have some extra re...

Re: Illustrator for Irix

Sometime around 2000 I sent Adobe my Illustrator and Photoshop S/Ns (they MUST include the -xxx at the end), and the hostid of my Webforce Indy, and they faxed me license keys.

Somehow I doubt this process still works. But you might start there.

Re: HP Visualize C200 - evil non-standard DVI connector!

There are currently EVC - VGA cable(s) listed on eBay for $20. (I forget if it was one of those auctions with multiple items available for the same price).

FWIW the item's description describes what amounts to a VGA terminator.

Re: VGA terminator == VGA dummy connector?

VGA terminator isn't exactly required for VGA passthrough. Some (many?) display adapters will come up in monochrome mode if they don't detect a monitor (e.g. ATI Mach32 behaves this way for sure). Attaching a VGA terminator will ensure it comes up in color. Passthrough still works either way, but yo...

Re: Indigo2 Doesn't Turn On After PSU Swap

If you have an IMPACT PSU and no IMPACT graphics, you're meant to plug the 3.3v power lead into a terminator board, which would normally be on the side of the PSU. I don't know what happens if you don't do this, though.

Re: SPARCBook 1 TADPOLE revival

If "minifs" contains a miniroot filesystem, which you have written to partition 1, I rate it unlikely that the name of the file within that miniroot filesystem which contains the kernel you are meant to boot is also "minifs". it may be called 'munix' though. have a look at minifs...
