installing nekoware

Hi I am trying to install some nekoware for the first time on my Sgi O2 which I just updated to IRIX 6.5.22. I tried installing the DiePleneten and Reallyslick screensaver and am running into errors while trying to run the programs (RSS I doubt will run on my O2 R5k but I was willing to try). . I ft...

Re: Indigo questions

But what about for the indigo? The only monitor I have that works with it is a Silicon Graphics Crt. None of my Crts or LCD monitors (which work fine on my O2's and everything else) even produce an image with the indigo. I am wondering if this is normal behavior for the indigo or maybe a bad 13w3 ad...

Re: Indigo questions

Does anyone know what monitors can be used with an indigo? I know that Sgi systems need sync on green compliant monitors and I have one Silicon Graphics Crt which works fine with a 13w3 adapter but none of my other Crt's or Lcd monitors even produce a image, SOG or not. I also have several O2's whic...

Re: Indigo questions

That would be awesome but unfortunately I am on Prince Edward Island in Canada, and as far as I have been able to determine am the only one on the island who owns any or has any interest in Silicon Graphics computers.

Re: Indigo questions

The Indigo had a prom password on it and the guy I got it from had never used it and didn't know what it was. So last resort I took a chance and pulled the eeprom and used the resetpw command to clear the password, it worked however as a side effect this clears the mac address. The address is on the...

Indigo questions

I acquired a Indigo r4k sometime ago that was giving the TOD clock error, which I managed to fix with by replacing the battery only to discover there was a prom password. I managed to successfully clear the password by removing and reseating the eeprom chip. As expected the mac address reverted to f...

Re: IRIX upgrade

Re: IRIX upgrade

Thanks for the reply. I was able to find the 5086 patch and 6.5.22 overlays but none of the browsers on my O2 (netscape and firefox) are supported by the Sgi site anymore. I attempted to install a newer one from the Sgi freeware site and get a plethora of conflicts which I am having trouble resolvin...

Re: Internet Setup O2

I am looking at getting my O2 online and wondering if they will support DHCP by default or does everything have to be statically assigned. I am just connecting mine using ethernet to my router and getting the same message upon startup as skysearcher WARNING: IRIS's Internet address is the default. U...
