Re: your latest purchase

I think an ebay seller can best be judged when things go wrong, not so much when they go right.

Re: Octane1 2x300MHz, 2GB RAM, EMXI

You language is incorrect.

From the Toolchest select.. Desktop -- Customize-- Language

Then ensure:

Country is set to Great Britain (English Latin 1....)
Language English (Latin 1....)

How real is this?

How safe is that system you have at home?

How safe is the system you sysops for?

I presume you have seen this one as well? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Silicon-Graphics-SGI-Tezro-Workstation-Maxed-out-with-SGI-Widescreen-monitor/391990034899?hash=item5b446d41d3:g:7GIAAOSwNdValUo6 Expensive yes, but a complete setup. I'm sure though you could get a more modern setup for that money.

Re: Tezro V12 2xR16K 800MHz 5GB

[Edited.. self control] The number three is perfect! And it's also a prime number. So owning three Tezros looks actually fine. In fact, even the personal free time and money are usually limited resources, especially for those who have a real talent and skill to use one machine for something. But luc...

Re: IBM T221 killed by incompetence - one more for packing stuff properly

3. I won't need the 2nd T221 until December, so I will be happy to lend Hamei the cable so he finishes his project, and then he can ship it back to me down the line. I'd still have a functional DG3, but only able to run it at 21Hz. I can't push 4x SL-DVI anyway yet (waiting to get another cheap Mat...

Re: Tezro V12 2xR16K 800MHz 5GB

uunix, have you managed to pick up your higher specced machine yet? Next weekend chap. I'll be bringing back two, mine and another that will be going to a museum. I'll be putting together the best looking one (skins etc) but ensuring it has a low spec, possibly then I will be able to fix the other ...

Re: IRIX 6.5 won't boot

You know vi ? You may need that to edit the /etc/fstab Once finished type 'exit' You will be then prompted for a run level. I select 0 and then wait till it it all stops and click restart or start.. you can't miss it. In vi.. dd (pressing the D key twice) removes a line or you can comment out by 'i'...

Re: IRIX 6.5 won't boot

At the prom select 5 and then enter 'single' without any quotes.
Then check if it's trying to mount something by looking at /etc/fstab.
Delete any external mount lines.
