Re: IRIS Indigo Reborn - project

This is probably a silly question, but are there any plans for a MIPS Creator CI20 case? In case you're not familiar: http://store.imgtec.com/us/product/mips-creator-ci20/

Re: freeware.sgi.com no longer online

I decided to mirror ftp.sgi.com and oss.sgi.com just now. I'll share with someone involved with the nekoware ftp server once it's done, if they're for some reason unable to get the files themselves.

Re: IRIS Indigo Reborn - project

Looking good. Now all you need to do is install RISC OS for it. Linux is too boring for a system like that. What an absolute pain RISC OS is being... tried it on a Pandaboard and there's something seriously broken. More than an hour to boot, 45 minutes just to log in. Doesn't work right. Will start...

Re: IRIS Indigo Reborn - project

First of all, I'd like to say that this is one of the most fascinating topics I've read on any message board in a long time. Are there any updates? Random thought: If you go the Linux/x86 route, might I suggest using nvidia products for the graphics? For one, their closed drivers are still supposed ...

Re: List of SGI CDs

I think I've seen 814-*-* as well, for disc sets, e.g. "IRIX 6.4 for Onrigin, Onyx, ..." which would be 1 OS disc, 1 Apps disc and a booklet. Quarter inch tapes start with 801-*-*, a tape distribution (tape(s) + printer relnotes) starts with 806-*-*. I'll see if I can produce a list of my...

Re: 13w3 to vga won't work

Thx again mate :) I've just ordered a "confirmed SGI" adapter from someone who *seems* to know what he's talking about, and I've sent the original seller on ebay a rant telling him he should be more accurate in describing the item. I think he discreetly redirected my rant to /dev/null tho...

Re: U. S. Government Restricted Rights Legend on IRIX CDs?

Megatron-UK: The names of the CDs don't suggest anything like that, but then again, this is my first proper unix workstation and I've sadly had very little time to play with it or the CDs (And yet, after seeing pictures of the other computers SGI made, I'd like to get my hands on more if only for ar...

U. S. Government Restricted Rights Legend on IRIX CDs?

First off, I just want to say hi. I found this place while googling information about 13W3 connectors, and I liked what I saw in those posts and in others enough to join and hopefully contribute. Here goes: To make a long story short, I scored an Indigo2 w/ a Sun GDM-17E10 (One of the very few Sun m...
