Re: SGI Fuel with Ryzen 5 2400G?

That is the 1%. That Will be EOL by the end of 2018..2019. IRIX is already EOL, and SGI is dead (absorbed by HPe). Yes, IRIX and SGI are dead. Of course, SGI have actually been dead since 2009. The more recent one was just Rackable Systems with SGI's name on it. IRIX has also been completely unsupp...

Re: SGI Fuel with Ryzen 5 2400G?

rare or not rare, that machine is only good for hobbyists (because it's EOL for every business purpose)... Actually, I think you'll find that's incorrect. One of the reasons that Ian's Fuel prices are so high these days is the commercial demand for bits combined with the fact that they are increasi...

Re: SGI Fuel with Ryzen 5 2400G?

I think if you're going to do a case mod whilst attracting the least amount of ire, you're best to stick to the golden rules: 1) Don't use a working system as a donor - the more electrically knackered the better. 2) Don't use a system for which intact models are increasingly few and far between (ie,...

Re: SGI Fuel with Ryzen 5 2400G?

I just wanted to know if it could be done, sloppy or not. Money isn't an issue, so I'll likely try to find a new SGI Fuel and gut it for the case. I assume people need the parts as well, so it wouldn't be any loss to turn one of these beauties into a sick Ryzen APU machine. If it isn't the Fuel, I'...

Re: Getting irix onto indigo2 r10k

CDRW is likely the issue. A lot of standard CD-ROM drives (especially earlier ones) will not read CDRWs. Hopefully burning it onto a standard CDR will help. You will of course still need some of the other disks as Dodoid mentioned. Foundation 1/2 and the Applications disks are required as a bare min...

Re: Things to buy....

Dell has a 30” monitor for you with a 16:10 aspect ratio: Yeah, HP also make one, as do NEC. Problem is that they're very expensive, and 2560x1600 is only pretty average by today's standards. It's good that a few professional 16:10 screens are still made, I just wish someone would do a 30" 16:...

Re: Things to buy....

Sadly to say, I think that gamers are also partially to blame for the 16:9 ratio, as a wider aspect ratio is beneficial when playing games. (As it best matches the average persons field if view, when sitting at the correct distance from the monitor.) Well, games do work better on a widescreen monit...

Re: Things to buy....

Why 16:10? The professional film world all use 4k and better monitors, but they are all 1.78:1. Of course, the needs of the industry are met as they are working on the aspect ratio that will be displayed to the end user. The only thing 16:10 would get you is the ability to display older European fi...

Re: Installing Firefox on Octane. Lots of dependencies.

Is the TBZ file format a zipped Tar as well? gunzip then tar -xvf? Yep, the extension gives you a clue :) (TBZ - T ar that's been BZ ipped). Just the same as .tar.bz in other words. As previously mentioned, "bzip2 -dc [filename] | tar xf -" will extract it in one single command. For GZipp...

Re: High Impact or Max Impact?

It's the EISA card I have in mine. Jan-jaap is correct that it does pull some CPU (I tend to get around 30% CPU load when transferring stuff). Performance wise, I get around 5MB/s from it - which is due to the limitations of the EISA bus. Advantages, well it's easier to find and cheaper than the Pho...

Re: High Impact or Max Impact?

Well, if you're going to use an Indycam with it, then it makes sense to try and get an IMPACT Video card for it. I remember using the Indycam back when I had my Indy, it was quite impressive for an early 90s PC, much better than PC webcams of the time.

Re: High Impact or Max Impact?

Personally, I'd say the 100Mb Network has to be a high priority. 10Mb is decidedly slow, and I'm very glad I've got a 100Mb NIC in my own Indigo2. Ultimately though, it depends on your use. IMPACT Video is interesting, but would you use it? Personally I only see the point of adding a card to a machi...

Another option as well is that diegel has made a "bundle" package for Firefox that includes all the dependencies: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=16730683
