Re: Mini-PC fit in an SGI hard drive bay?

Asus miniPC (N62 model) fits in perfectly. See below image.. I pushed the Asus miniPC farther back inside the Octane to show how well it fits.. dont mind the dust in the photo, this Octane is a spare I have. Regarding cooling.. the Asus miniPC does not seem to get hot.. if anything its barely warm a...

Re: Mini-PC fit in an SGI hard drive bay?

I too cannot get more than 16bit with nekoware's version of rdesktop to any windows system. However, I do get 24bit color (across the pond uses colour ;) with nekoware's version of rdesktop connecting to VirtualBox's Remote Display feature (opens up a port with RDP for the specific Virtual Machine a...

Re: Mini-PC fit in an SGI hard drive bay?

Small update.. I have an Asus UN62 mini PC, a lot more powerful than the Intel ComputeStick but much more expensive.. it has an Intel i3 chip (they do come with an i5 too), 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD.. it can slide into the back of an octane's PCI cage slot and could act as a sort of hardware hypervisor for...

Re: SoftWindows 95: which Apps are working???

Whats working in SoftWindows 95? I have a large collection of old games and apps media, many with original boxes.. so I was able to test various apps and games in SoftWindows 95 on IRIX. This type of test is not the same as testing apps in Qemu/Bochs, BasiliskII(macos), UAE(amiga)..etc.. as SoftWind...

Re: QEmu on IRIX, bye bye softwindows 95.

For years I never found QEMU for IRIX (compiled) anywhere until I started digging into GeneratriX's decade+ old SlimDesktop tardist/packages that were still available on this forum. And I was surprised to find a qemu IRIX binary in it. It is an older 0.6.1 version, but it does give possibilities now...

Re: LGeneral (Panzer General) compiled for IRIX

Looks like sound always worked. My Octane was set to default audio output to AES/optical .. and it seems SDL-based apps do not agree and go out on regular analog out.

Re: How frequently you use your SGI (in 2017)?

uunix: It seems that is a linux rdesktop problem too if you do some google searches. There are some gpedit.msc or registry mods that 'limit' the max color depth but what we need is a minimum setting and not a max, however many others online seem to say that fixed it for them (no luck for me). I do f...

oneko 1.2 MIPSPro compiled

This is an oldie, and I am sure many others have compiled this on IRIX.. but I could not find a pre-compiled one around (maybe I am bad at searching?.. if so then my apologies), so here it is. Its a single binary.

Re: getopt_long for IRIX

For anyone who has trouble with getopt_long and IRIX.. I know we have a Wiki on this that says "google around for the example code to implement this" .. which was not very helpful for me. Granted, once I figured it out, it now seems easy but it took some time for me to get to that point. I...

Re: LGeneral (Panzer General) compiled for IRIX

So I was able to take the DOS version of panzer general, convert it, and runs fine on IRIX's compiled lgeneral. On ubuntu, I ran lgc-pg --separate-bridges DAT (DAT is the directory from panzer general and --separate-bridges is needed to get a bridge.bmp (and a couple others) file that seems to be re...

LGeneral (Panzer General) compiled for IRIX

This still needs testing and review of bugs/IRIX issues, so consider this a beta. It runs far better natively than trying to run Panzer General in Dosbox on an SGI. "LGeneral is a turn-based strategy engine heavily inspired by Panzer General. You play single scenarios or whole campaigns turn by...

Re: Quieting the Octane. Maintain thermal control

Oh.. regarding: On top of that.. i was unable to pull out my front after unscrewing the 6 screws.. seemed stuck on the top (bottom was able to get some play). Didnt want to pull out flat-head screw drivers and make a mess either. I ended up using various sizes of a flat head screwdriver to pry it ou...

Re: Quieting the Octane. Maintain thermal control

So I decided to replace my Octane's fans. I replaced the HDD fan with: Zalman 92mm plus fan ZM-F2 Plus (SF) Looks and sounds fine there. I replaced the front-plane CPU with the exact same product.. just one that is brand new: ShicoH ICFAN 0610-12L No difference there as expected. I did replace the P...

Re: How frequently you use your SGI (in 2017)?

jirka: It's not exactly fast but on my O2 it's way better than the native Ff3! I use Intel Computes Stick as my Linux desktop (an Atom-based thing with 1 GB of RAM). I also use an Intel Compute Stick.. I consider it a type of pseudo 'Intel Co-Processor' for my SGI Octane. (like how SUN had SUN PCI d...

Re: ipmitool for IRIX

Is the irix package built mainly for remote management of other devices over ip or can it also be used to read sensor data on SGI hardware? IPMI is only for remote managing IPMI-enabled devices regarding sensor data, remote power control, and even remote console access to where you get to see an In...
