Re: What to do with a VW320?

That looks really cool, a very good example of a 320!

Upgrade it a Ian suggests and enjoy it for what it is. :D

They're hard to find in that condition so that was a good find.

Re: Show Off Your Home Office Setup & SGI Collection...

I am quite sure that who collects a lot of objects in the same room just wants to expose how many they have! Like when we were teenagers and we collected football stickers. I prefer collecting playboy magazines :lol: Not actually, I'm beyond the state of being where I have to prove things to other ...

Re: Show Off Your Home Office Setup & SGI Collection...

Thanks Jan, :D

hi-fi is my first love, followed very closely by computers! :D

It's been a real journey to get each one of these machines to the state that they're in, but an incredibly enjoyable journey at that! :D

Re: Onyx2 Reality Graphics problems

I hope you get your machine sorted also, thanks for your help so far! I'm sorry that I cant be of more help! These machines are rather difficult to troubleshoot, as you don't usually have a whole bunch of spare modules for one of these machines just lying around to swap out! In my machines case the...

Re: Onyx2 Reality Graphics problems

I hope you can sort your machine out, I do think that it's strange that you get picture on initial boot, but not as IRIX boots! It may not be a hardware problem. I have had a problem similar to this before on other SGI machines, when IRIX didn't have the required library's to support the graphics ha...

Re: Onyx2 Reality Graphics problems

MY Onyx 2 currently has a problem in that it simply wont display a picture with both raster managers installed (even during the initial boot sequence), but it works fine with one raster manager and both raster managers do work. I have a DG5-8 coming in from the US, which should hopefully solve my pr...

Re: Onyx2 Reality Graphics problems

The graphics system seems to be working properly if it shows the correct info on startup.

I'm just thinking that your install of IRIX might not have the relevant Graphics libraries for the graphics setup that you have installed in your machine.

How did you install IRIX on the new system disk?

Re: Onyx2 Reality Graphics problems

Did you carry out the fresh IRIX install on the Onyx 2 machine with the CD-ROM fitted in the machine?

Re: Onyx2 Reality Graphics problems

I take it that you have removed all of the graphics modules and cleaned them.

How many raster managers does the system have? and does it show you the number of raster managers present in the system as the system boots? (on the infinite reality screen)

Re: Onyx2 Reality Graphics problems

Just so that I fully understand, confirm that you get a display as the system boots, and only loose the display once IRIX starts it's booting process?

Is the IRIX install on the system a fresh install?

Re: SGI Tezro: Quad 800 MHz with 4MB cash vs Quad 700 MHz with 8MB cash

Thanks for the info, it seems to be a very nice machine!

I will definitely look at upgrading it in the future to see what I can get out of it!

SGI Tezro: Quad 800 MHz with 4MB cash vs Quad 700 MHz with 8MB cash

I bought a Tezro about a month ago and have only had time to look at it now. I stripped the machine down completely and cleaned it thoroughly. The machine turned out to be a dual 700 MHz machine with V12 graphics and 7GB of RAM. (crappy configuration!) I happened to have a spare Origin 350 node boar...
