Messed up my VBOB - trying to recover

I was a little too brave one day, not satisfied with my vbob experience to date, and decided to flash the firmware. (by running /usr/dmedia/bin/vbob/vbob_update1 and vbob_update2) Oops :? It was on 1.3.22 Now It is on 1.3.8 I no longer get the color bars , and confidence tests no longer pass.... the...

tezro DM3/VBOB/DM5 - multiple links

My VBOB definitely has 2 SD inputs (labeled 1,2) and 2 HD inputs (also labeled 1,2). The documentation refers to Link A and LinkB for SD and HD. Are LinkA,LinkB only meant for aggregating bandwidth onto a single stream, or are they supposed to be useable as separate streams ? If they are usable as s...

Re: Clang/PCC on IRIX?

If you want >= C++11 (auto, lambda's, etc..) on IRIX g++ will get you that, MipsPro wont. If you need more performance and want those features, perhaps inline assembly is in your future... I tried compiling clang++ for IRIX a while back. I did not finish the task, but it certainly did not seem insur...

fetchop on tezro?

Is there fetchop hardware on tezro? Specifically, I am looking for the fastest possible atomic op support across 2 or more processors (preferably better than ll/sc). There is plenty of info on the interwebs about fetchop and o2k systems, but not o3k systems. Even if o3k systems do support it, I'm gu...

Re: PowerAnimator v8.5 question

Actually it probably will. (I have power animator 7.5.1 running on a tezro V12 - IRIX 6.5.28). I spent a bit of time getting this working because all I had in my possession was PA7.5.1 media ;< Requires a couple of hacks though. I can provide detailed instructions if your willing to go through the p...

Tezro/Irix6.5 boot time

Hi, When booting up my new Tezro I have noticed it takes far longer to boot than my Indigo2. Most of this time seems to be spent in the 'prom booting" stage (Before it even starts actually booting the OS). Are there any non volatile settings I can mess with that might improve this ? Thanks, mtm

Indy Killer

Ouch. I killed an Indy last night. Was trying to install an SSD via a AEC-7720U and cheap ide->sata adapter. Needless to say the combo of SSD / 7720u / ide->sata adapter is physically very awkward. Had to mess with the termination settings for a bit. Finally, the SSD showed up correctly in hinv. Oth...

Im tempted to paint my Indigo2 (The skins are in pretty bad shape).
