Not sure it was mentioned but RHEL 7 / Centos 7 default FS is XFS these days, but there may be a version compatibility issues as pointed out.

Re: Mysterious Sun keyboard

It's not mysterious at all. It's a Sun Type 5C keyboard with a Sun Minidin 8 connector, not to be confused with PS2. The connectors look similar, but the electrical behind it is different. You would need an adapter to use it with a PS2 interface. These keyboards were sold and used with many sun mach...

Re: Sun Blade 1000 won't boot - battery?

In my years of working with super cranky Blade 2000s, here are a couple of notes. -Make sure the CPUs are torqued correctly, I think the 1000 came with a torque "ring" to use, the 2000s had a green handle 5lb wrench. -Turn on the machine and then double tap the power button after the light...

Re: SGI Equipment available in Seattle

I know its off topic, apologize a head of time, but I just wanted to say something.

Fuck cancer. No one should ever have to deal with something like cancer. Sorry to hear this.

I hope your computers go to a good home.

Re: Ultra 20 ATX based?

Yeah the are pertty much a bone stock PC with a Sun branded AMI bios. If you are looking to purchase one, make sure its a U20M2, way more value there. Dual gigabit nics, DDR2 instead of 1, lots of AM2 chips to pick from (no quad core support though), supports 16GB of ram if you can manage to find 4G...

Re: solaris 10 bring up interface ?

The other way is to check your configs, down the interfaces and do a "svcadm restart physical".

Re: Red LED on mac pro memory / logic boards

Numbers look good to me. Apple's temp specs are usually a lot higher than what you're seeing.

Perhaps a PRAM / SMC reset is in order to clear the warning lights? If you are really worried there are memtest programs for OSX...

Re: Debian 7/MIPS and MaXX DESKTOP

I would drop to init 3 and check you have 3d accelerated graphics. F18 and 17 with Gnome 3 gave me this trouble and I had to install the official nvidia drivers to fix it.

Edit: whoops, I read the above backwards. Sorry! Thought you had problems with the new GDM.

Re: Boot a SPARCStation 20 into single user mode without a C

Thanks for all the replies, guys. One less boat anchor under my desk, and I finally have a functioning RISC system. 4.1.4 doesn't do XDM, at least by default. Log in and then run "openwin". Make sure that /usr/openwin/bin is in your PATH, or specify /usr/openwin/bin/openwin. stout# openwi...

Re: Boot a SPARCStation 20 into single user mode without a C

What he/she said. My advice is to setup a jumpstart server anyways. Making a Solaris 10 VM for this is crazy easy using the docs provided. Spool up your solaris of choice (9 should work on the 20) and away you go. Anytime you need it, fire up the VM and then you can do rescues and installs over boot...

Re: UltraSparc III Clock Frequency Settings

The clock speed is set by a jumper on the motherboard. I suspect you need the Silver edition as mentioned above to get to the correct 1.5ghz.
