Re: Possibly a stupid question about 9111-285

when I had second scsi-backplane installed (identical PN of FRU as the first one) 2nd being the lower 4 drives. Machine does not boot - it will shutdown after while. Its not clear to me if it possible or impossible to run it with 8 drives. But so far no luck. I have 2 types of the scsi backplane - o...

Re: Possibly a stupid question about 9111-285

I have tried aix 5 - 7 very interesting os... It sounds like you tried AIX 5 to 7 on the same machine. How did they compare in terms of performance and resource requirements? Well to be honest I cant see any difference in performance. Its rather additional futures in 7. But then I haven't really te...

Re: Possibly a stupid question about 9111-285

To clarify the situation: In Linux: everything works, sound works, graphics works (with powermac radeon - console display to). But Ideally I would like to run AIX to keep it authentic - in AIX: no sound - device /dev/paud0 present but no way to control it or use it. Additional problem: additional sc...

Re: Possibly a stupid question about 9111-285

I got the GXT6500P initialized under X but its not usable - colors mixed and absolutely unstable. headphone jack - sure its there I tried many audio mixers - that would be a smallest problem - but the software has nothing to interact with - there is no /dev/mixer - just /dev/paud0 (or similar) and t...

Re: Possibly a stupid question about 9111-285

vishnu: I ran AIX for some time on it - its really powerful - true and I got to know it somehow well now but you know how it is in real live ? you run xterm or dtterm for 90% of the time - I'm not working on any Katia stuff So this uber-powerfull card is producing heat mainly. Would you suggest any ...

Re: Possibly a stupid question about 9111-285

Yes I have both cards - not supported in linux. Radeon runs fine and is initialized by firmware (mac version equipped with OF rom) lower scsi backplane connects to motherboard so it should work in theory. media backplane is not connected anywhere at the moment (has a scsi plug in the back) but I onl...

Re: Possibly a stupid question about 9111-285

Another thing: This machine is for sure the most complicated one I had so far. I bought the raid enabler card for it (works fine) And also wanted to add more HDs - so ordered a second scsi backplane type 32N1203 its exactly the same as the one for the first four harddrives but the machine wont boot:...

Possibly a stupid question about 9111-285

I managed to install debian on it - there is some messing with boot-loader - as installer is trying to do it MAC way and expects formatted boot partition, We need to have raw boot partition with boot-loader image dd'ed to it. everything w...

Re: Possibly a stupid question about 9111-285

Well nothing is wrong with CRUX - I just don't like to run linux on that machine LFS or gentoo at least would give me a good overview on performance under load while compiling ;). Also I used to run Gentoo for many years on my first Intellistation Mpro 6889 - so its kind of nostalgia. Well after I e...

Re: Possibly a stupid question about 9111-285

sorry for the delay: bluecode: Yes the sound card works - I can hear mpg123 etc - problem is there is absolutely nothing to be found reassembling a mixer. I was convinced it will be easy since IBM documents everything - well except sound cards it seems. I got a full set of install media together wit...

Well I know its an old post - but it may help someone in the future:

To move a borderless app in Irix twm click on it press Alt-F7 and move wherever you like. To kill it - place pointer over it and hold ESC for ~2sec
