Re: Best workstation to start with?

First SGI system I ever used that had a working installation of IRIX was an O2, so I probably have a romantic memory of it. With that said, out of three O2s that were under my watch all three are now dead. I'd bring the last one back to life if the opportunity presents itself (especially since there...

External CD-ROM and External HDD? Nice. We had those Sun Drives attached to a SPARCCLassic that was smaller then they were.

Re: ata100 vs nfs

Yeah, I don't think I'll need much more than the ata100 bus. I got the g4 / monitor for a very good price. The only reasons I'd be using it is just to have a mac desktop and for osx coding / porting. Just thought I'd look into increasing the speed because I like upgrading things, lol. Considering t...

Re: SGI O2 Frontplane Pinouts

Sounds like something that belongs in the Wiki when you're done, so that it is easy to find.

Re: SGI VWS 320 VRM

If you can, see if the NT 4.0 installer will load. The one we had in university (dual P3) never did run quite right in Windows 2000, had to fall back to NT 4 SP6 to get everything running right (and 2K would also randomly BSOD on us as well).

Re: No SSH banner when using PUTTY

Interesting - perhaps you have more then one version of SSH installed on the system and the wrong sshd is running?

Re: POWER6 Linux and AIX

Agreed - nice job on getting a P520. I miss having access to the two that I used to (Previous job had two of them in the lab, both connected to an HMC. One ran AIX 7.1 and the other ran IBM i), they were pretty nice machines. How's IBM i? I've never managed to find much about it. To me, the menu ba...

Re: POWER6 Linux and AIX

Proposal: if you buy a GENERIC (like LSI / Adaptec) SAS controller and ensure it has the correct miniSAS connectors to connect to the backplane, in theory the firmware should give boot control to the generic SAS card and then boot from whatever disk you want. This is assuming of course the motherbo...

Re: POWER6 Linux and AIX

Hmmm...Just a thought, but if you have both drives in there boot to the SAS drive and then have it mount the SATA drive with your data and such (in older days it would have been put /usr on the SATA, but I don't think RHEL 6.x allows / and /usr to be separate)

Re: MaXX is back!

Lol. Sounds fair enough. I actually had to hunt for blank DVDs when I was doing an install on my P3 laptop since I've been using USB sticks for so long to do installs (the Dell C400 doesn't support booting to USB. And even if it did I think it only has USB 1.1, so that would be painfully slow).

Re: MaXX is back!

Fedora 24 works, I don't think it works in 25 right now. Debian and Ubuntu are reported to work (I know it worked with Ubuntu 15.10, haven't tried the updated version on 16.04 yet since I've been in Slackware and Red Hat land for a while).
