WTB Onyx 2 GE / RM / possibly DG5-2

HI All, My newly acquired Onyx2 seems to have developed a fault with the Reality Graphic as detailed here: http://forums.nekochan.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16732114&p=7402588#p7402588 so I am in the market for a new GE and RM - hopefully this will fix the issue and I won't need a new DG5-2 but...

Re: Onyx2 Reality Graphics problems

a PROM hinv is showing the graphics option. Just to illustrate that this was a sudden thing, here is the SYSLOG from the session before the error first appeared and the one where it appeared. Please excuse the time and date being wrong ;o) Oct 8 13:59:54 6F:onyx2 syslogd: restart Oct 8 13:59:54 6A:o...

Re: Onyx2 Reality Graphics problems

Does anyone happen to know which subsystem it is testing when irsaudit doing TEST xgram? GE, RM or DG? Or even worse Midplane? That is my real fear - GE, RM I will happily replace as I was considering an upgrade anyway - DG5 would be annoying but again is replaceable, but I am not sure I want to rep...

Re: Onyx2 Reality Graphics problems

Yes it was installed on the Onyx2 with the internal CD-ROM. Regardless, the problem developed with the old system disk where things had been working fine.

Re: Onyx2 Reality Graphics problems

It has one RM8-16, and it does show the info on the PROM screen (Reality, 2GE, 1RM or something similar). Yes, everything has been cleaned - a visual inspection reveals no bent pins. I am going to try and replace the compression connector on the GE as, well why not, it is worth a go. I am not holdin...

Re: Onyx2 Reality Graphics problems

Yes, that is correct, I get a display up until the GFX initiliases and it would display the login screen. I get the graphics console displaying the boot progress. I have tried it with both the system disk that came with the system and with a fresh 6.5.30 install. It had been working with the origina...

Re: Onyx2 Reality Graphics problems

Some more info - I get a graphics display on boot and in the PROM, and booting IRIX until it tries to initialise the GFX. I also get the display back when I shut it down IRIX. I booted the system without graphics and managed to run irsaudit - here are the results: IRIS 22# ./irsaudit INFO Unable to ...

Re: WTB: Origin 2000 / Onyx2 MSC keys

Thanks for the reply - I have had limited success with this, finding a blank that fits well is proving to be problematic. I have had one cut which kind of works, but catches so you have to giggle it around a bit. This would make be nervous if i wanted to kill the power in a hurry.

Re: WTB: Ultra64 dev kit

So the Psy-Q devkit is cartridge based - it fits into the top of a retail N64. All you need is a standard cartridge that fits into a slot on the side to provide a suitable security key (I use Mario Kart). It links to a PC via an ISA interface card, which basically is a SCSI adapter of which I also h...

WTB: Origin 2000 / Onyx2 MSC keys

Hi All,

Does anyone have any spare MSC Keys for an Origin 2000 / Onyx 2? I have 2 machines but only one key at the moment which is a bit of a pain!
