Re: Wanted:Iris 3000 series keyboard and mouse

Nice to see some GL2-W screenshots. Any chance to give us some more? Operating the machine without the right mouse button is pretty limiting, and apparently my GF2 fails diags (which may help to explain some of the random lockups). My spare GF2s fail diags worse. So I have some more work to do. But...

Re: Wanted:Iris 3000 series keyboard and mouse

I spent some time on mine this weekend. Finally got the mouse working enough to play with more than the console textport. Discovered I had some flaky BP3s as well, but fortunately the 32-plane configuration means I'm able to hide it by shuffling them around a bit. Wrote a couple tools to generate sc...

Re: about LISP performance

Finger Of God and Spheres definitely do. The hardware pan and zoom works, but is not very smooth. I'm not sure if this is a limitation of the NuVista or of the MacIvory (or NuBus for that matter). The only thing that doesn't seem to work is color map animation. But it might. I'm not sure what it's ...

Re: about LISP performance

Necropost: The reason for the poor showing from the MicroExplorer is probably that the counter overflows its fixnum size, forcing bignums to be allocated. As its words are only 32 bits, it has a smaller range for fixnums than the Ivory machines. I expect that if you use n= 16 million instead of 50 ...

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...

that's an awful lot of logic for just an RS-422 interface.
