Re: Installing SunOS 4.1.4

No, it shouldn't be a problem. OS/MP, which I use on my Solbournes, is a modified SunOS and it works fine with a burned disc. I think #1 is going to be the least amount of headache and if you're interested in old Unix workstations you'll need one sooner or later anyway. I use a Toshiba also, I forge...

Re: Installing SunOS 4.1.4

Mount it? It's not an ISO 9660 file system, it's actually FFS (which SunOS calls "4.2"). What were you trying to mount it as?

Re: Installing SunOS 4.1.4

I'm not sure if it's the same, but on my Solbourne systems, I needed rarpd and tftpd, with TFTP having the install kernel image.

Re: Interesting read: A-EON Amiga X500 review from Ars

The Xena clearly has potential, but I don't know if anyone has actually done anything to exercise that potential. It seems to facilitate custom I/O; it's channel rather than buffer driven, which would certainly make things like using it for SIMD or as a true copper more complicated. Is there anythin...

Re: The Solbourne Solace

PPC64 is that way also (32-bit instruction words, but 64-bit pointers and registers). Dan Julio was very helpful actually during the writeup. He was amused by me upgrading my S3000 with the L2+CPU from a S4000DX ("S4100") to make an "S3000DX." I still have to get out that Series ...

Re: Interesting read: A-EON Amiga X500 review from Ars

ITYM X5000. As an Amiga, cool. It's clearly the most kick-@$$ Miggy you can get. I think the Xena will be a waste of motherboard again, though. Does anything actually do anything with it? Did anything on the X1000? As a PowerPC computer, eh. The P50xx series are not exactly barnburners, and a decade...

Re: BeBox on eBay... get it while you can!

Yup, it would easily fetch that, especially in good shape.

I purchased mine from a fellow collector at a very good price, but he also knew I wasn't going to turn around and liquidate it. I rather like the damn thing even though it's just a toy really.

I don't really remember. I'll look next time I'm in there (the Q800 case is not nice to disassemble :P ).
