Re: Indy XL TrueColor

When I used IRIX 5.3 on my Indy, changing the Xserver file, it was possible to use truecolor, the photos were super perfect and bright. I know it was simulated, but it was possible.

How to do this in IRIX 6.2 or 6.5?

Re: Indy XL TrueColor

If I understand well, all I need to do to my system supports 24bit (dithered or not), it would be put in the Xserver file, only the command -depth 24, and nothing else, not even put -class TrueColor (or PseudoColor or DirectColor), is this?

Re: Indy XL TrueColor

How to configure the virtual 24bit using my 8bit XL system in IRIX 6.5.22, or in IRIX 6.2 or in IRIX 5.3. This is only possible using IRIX 5.3? I'm not disagreeing with anyone here. I sincerely believe in you guys. I just said I could make it work, even if it is apparently on IRIX 5.3, and the color...

Re: Indy XL TrueColor

Possible is doing dithering or not, I know that was possible when I wore irix 5.3! This is true!
I managed such a feat, but I lost the configuration file to 15 years.
If only it is possible using dithering, so what should write in Xservers file then?

Re: Zipdrive discs 100MB with efs filesystem

Thanks for the help. Most disks (which are good) operation is normal. Even using Spinrite it accesses the disks. Allowing your full recovery using the resources previously indicated by yours, in linux. As already said before, some of my disks do not open more, no way. Even using the "SpinRite 6...

Re: Zipdrive discs 100MB with efs filesystem

Some of the zip disks do not open at all, it is as if they had not been formatted yet, the boot sector may have been impaired. Is it possible in linux to do a non-destructive formatting a zip disc irix efs, not to lose data and programs? Or a means to remake the boot sector. And how has this in Indy?

Re: Zipdrive discs 100MB with efs filesystem

As my research, some discs also have another structure, as shown in the fdisk command: fdisk -l /mnt/network/indy/zipdrive/zip04.efs Disk /mnt/network/indy/zipdrive/zip04.efs: 100 MB, 100646912 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 12 cylinders, total 196576 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 byt...

Re: Zipdrive discs 100MB with efs filesystem

Thanks for the help. I do not remember the syntax of the command "dd" on Linux that was used, but it certainly has been used in such a manner compatible with the Windows command that created image of the same size. Mentioned in the linux fdisk command returned this: ...fdisk -l /tmp/zip37....

Re: Zipdrive discs 100MB with efs filesystem

to duck, the dd command is creating the image of the entire disk. the "device path" used in windows is correct, because a search was done and this "device path" was the one who accessed the zipdrive. and the image size (98,288 KB) seems to me correct. For comparison purposes, was...

all I need is to retrieve all the files from my zip disks that were formatted for EFS (irix) filesystem on a computer Indy with IRIX 6.5. Indy is not possible to use the physical disk as the zipdrive scsi is causing read errors. But I have a zipdrive (NEC) 100MB installed on my PC. The option "...
