Re: Homebrewed 128Mb SGI O2 RAM

I love that you referenced that @miod. Do we get to see the whole 1GB in OpenBSD soon ? This has been the case for more than 10 years already :D And since we're asking, has anyone you know ever figured out how to poke things into ICE and get back meaningful results? If I ever got smart enough, I al...

Re: Sun WorkShop Question

I suppose the other alternative is to find one of the Fujitsu AG-10 boards, or try a ZX board. I've never had any luck getting an AG-10e to work in an UltraSPARC machine. The system boots, but the display is completely garbled. On the other hand, ZX works well (and will act as a space heater as usu...

Re: Homebrewed 128Mb SGI O2 RAM

so I was wondering - what exactly is limiting the o2 to 1GB of RAM? The CRIME memory controller is designed to allow only up to 1GB memory. In particular, it offers two adjacent views of that 1GB memory area, the second one disabling ECC. Quoting from the CRIME manual section 3.1.2 "CPU Addres...

It really depends on what you are doing. Large file transfers will benefit from this; interactive sessions won't.

Re: encryption cards?

someone happens to have ever used one? A few dudes at BSD said they are are a good help for routers to speed up the vpn's stuff, but ... linux seems lacking in support, and I have never seen one of those crypto-cards running. I have used several such PCI cards in the early 2000s. The main drawback ...

ok, but neither Atheros chips nor Calvium chips used in routers do have special instructions implemented to speed up the vpn's stuff.

Cavium chip do. Coprocessor #2 is a crypto accelerator.

Re: Disable nis

Oh man, that was a long time ago i used NIS at the uni. Have a look at your /etc/passwd file and make sure there is a regular entry for root, not just a line with +:+::: or something similar. Systems using /etc/nsswitch.conf usually do not need such a line. To the OP: can you check if `passwd` is n...
