The problem is that dina on both vmware and virtual box isnt seen on my network with any adapter settings and thus I cant get the irix files onto it.

You probably need to change the setup in the "Virtual Network Editor" which came with the VMware Workstation package.

Re: Fuel CPU Disabled

L2 Emulator ? The L2-controller was a ppc-based hardware-appliance running Linux. I assume you mean the L3-controller (System-controller) which was connected to all of the L2-controllers in the racks and ran on Red Hat Linux on a SGI 230. 3 weeks ago I installed Red Hat Linux 9 (2003) and the L3-con...

@necron2600:
Well that's quite a lot of SUN gear from the time before Larry came, very nice.
Your W114 in the garage seems to be in great shape, I once had a W115 20 years ago, though my personal favorite is the W111 Coupe.

Re: EBAY US - What's this? Infinite Performance

The compositor for sale on Ebay is the original device released in 2002. A year later in 2003 SGI released a revised version (rev b) which features support for a multi-compositor setup which does not exist on the first compositor. https://techpubs.jurassic.nl/library/manuals/4000/007-4602-001/pdf/00...

I assume you mean Jensens Bøfhus which is indeed a danish restaurant chain.
Be aware not to order one of their lethal dishes (a man died because of a piece of meat that got stuck in his throat).

Re: Tezro sold for under $600

So what exactly can one do with an octane2 with 4 displays other than bragrights?


I suppose this was considered a 2-seat solution where every user has 2 displays. This machines has already the pcicage, so the only
part missing is an io3-card.

Re: Tezro sold for under $600

I asked the seller about the type of mainboard (4 or 8 pci-x) and the type of cpu-module (1,2 or 4 cpu), but never got an answer.
He advertised the Tezro as quad system, but I'm not so sure about that since the machine did not have one single pci-x card except
the io9 which is required.
