Re: TIP: .sw/.idb distribution image format

Here's a link to the 'midb' program mentioned above: http://persephone.cps.unizar.es/~spd/src/other/mydb.c
Looks like it will need some updating for modern systems, but should work on your Power Series and older!

WTB/T: Half rack for Onyx350 or similar [US]

I'd like to find a good-condition Onyx350 / Onyx4 / Origin350 17U (half) rack, with or without systems inside it. I'm in the DC area. I've got an Altix350 full rack at the moment and would like to reclaim some space in the living room (well, vertical space anyway :) ) -- so if anyone's interested in...

Re: Cray XD1

this is pretty cool, not just for the brand but also the FGPA onboard. any of our german nekochan members interested in going in on this together, assuming the price is decent (I didn't see it listed anywhere yet)? would be interested in 1-2 rackmount units.

I don't think it would take much convincing to get most of nekochan to sign that petition, but would that be enough?

EL-16 serial console to ethernet aggregator PSU pinout?

I have a couple SGI-badged EtherLite EL-16 boxes but no PSUs, and they use a nonstandard-looking 5-pin power port on the back. I opened the case up to see of there were any PCB markings to help identify the power/voltage requirements, but I didn't see anything useful. Does anyone know the pinout fro...

Re: neko_git-1.7.10.2 uploaded

neko_git seems to have a lot of dependencies on unrelated items -- ran into openldap, db4, cyrus_sasl, and their conflicts with dovecot when trying to upgrade from 1.7.5 to 1.7.10 via nekoware

Re: neko_apache2-2.2.21 and dependencies

looks like there are some incompatibilities (either real or inst-perceived) between dovecot, openldap, db4, and cyrus_sasl. ironically, i ran into this while trying to upgrade git (to 1.7.10 from nekoware) neko_openldap.sw.lib (5) is incompatible with neko_dovecot.sw.lib (3) 1a. Do not install neko_...
