Re: Onyx2 temp error

It is a deskside. Took it all apart. Clean as can be. Nothing blocked or dusty when looking through the top air intake grate. It appears to be starting up now without powering off. I removed the power supply and fan tray to look around but found nothing out of place. Is there a utility to check temp...

Onyx2 temp error

Went to fire up the onyx2 and it turns off with a temp warning. Kinda odd, it was running quite a while earlier with no issue. If anything i would have thought it cooled down by now. It had power to it, but with the key off. Both the orange fan light and the orange temp light are lit and i get the t...

Setting up lightpptd on IRIX 6.5

Ive been meaning to get a webserver going for a while now but it keeps getting aside for other projects. I installed the lighttpd server from nekoware. i now have a /usr/nekoware/lighttpd folder. I am uncertain of how to configure the server and where files are supposed to go, etc. I also keep putti...

Re: sgi crimsons. 2 of them

i dealt with the ungodly shipping to get them here. granted the first one was more reasonable, still had to rent a car and go to the opposite end of the state and back a couple times to get it though....

Re: IBM AS/400 OS/400 questions

My main irritation is those wonky terminals with the screw in connectors. With my sgi gear i can theow a couple of vt100's on it and have a nice multi user system. on this... aside from submitting batch jobs, i do not see much that can be done. it does have file sharing and webserver etc, but idk wh...

Re: IBM AS/400 OS/400 questions

Well, it is a big change from anything else i have ever worked on, what is for sure. Probally the least user friendly thing i have worked on. It is quite interesting. It does have a valid os licence, as well as licences for a few other things. I ordered a ibm branded tape drive and some tapes, gonna...

Re: sgi crimsons. 2 of them

Its killing me to sell them. I spent years of my life trying to get these. i spent all day in school erading about them during class. It outright hurts to have spent so much for them, to have actually managed to get two of them, and now have to part with them. There is no sound. no video playback (d...

sgi crimsons. 2 of them

Spent a lot to get these but have not been able to do much with them. I posted a hinv of one on the hinv section. I need to get the specs of the other. None of my newer software runs on these. I am open to offers. Located in florida. I am happy enough with the onyx2 i picked up. If there is anything...

Re: Anyone see this beaut on eBay

Now for something that rare, and for a whole machine, $500 seems reasonable. Ive wanted one of those, kinda grossly impractical for me because all my irix software is for later versions of irix.

Re: Anyone see this beaut on eBay

A large amount of crimson parts showed up around the same time that that crimson did on ebay, by the same seller. I suspect they got two of them and parted the second one out. They have the IO3 board i want, but $400 plus $100 shipping is just too much for me. Still, if you need crimson parts, nows ...

Re: Anyone see this beaut on eBay

They are rare but it seems like quite a steep price.

Re: IBM AS/400 OS/400 questions

OK, progress. Not a doorstop quite yet. Read over some documentation, and managed to IPL into DST or Dedicated service tools. After a wait i am greeted with the first screen, complaining about something hard drive related. I proceeded to tell it to reset the qsecofr account to the default password a...

Re: IBM AS/400 OS/400 questions

Alright, so that answers that question. Still learning all the IBM lingo. So reading them on another machine is out of the question. If i were to get a working install going on the machine, perhaps on a different drive, is it possible to perhaps "mount" a couple of these disks and see what...
