Re: Remote X color problems

Nothing particularly difficult. The Mini Indigo is running DietPi v158 (a minimal Debian ARM variant), though I don't imagine you would have compatibility issues with other UNIXes (X11 is pretty universal, barring extensions like GLX or RANDR). On the Mini Indigo, I run export DISPLAY=192.168.0.33:0...

Remote X color problems

Hi Nekochan! I'm currently trying to make my SGI O2 display a Firefox running on a remote GNU/Linux machine (a Mini Indigo, actually). So far, the remote X seems to be working fine. I can run Xterm: 2017-11-18 17.01.06.jpg As you can see, the Xterm here is running on the remote box, and displaying o...

Re: How can we encourage better group participation on this site?

I like iFixit. Very useful for smartphone repair guides, etc. I used your Onyx guide when I took apart mine for transport. Very helpful! Also, worth noting: if anyone wants to post my SGI History series, I would suggest linking to my Complete History of SiliconGraphics . As was the plan from the beg...

Re: A smear campaign against nekochan.net mods on reddit

Hey, reddit's not half bad. When you have one dude posting 100% of the posts on a dead sub in the last 6 months, at a rate of multiple per day, that's when you've got a problem.

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

I have kicked off NSA/CIA/FBI off my laptop :p Compiled and flashed git version of Coreboot (after days of research (I had to start from scratch), getting configs right, borrowing some stuff from libreboot, etc) I have just flashed Libreboot to a T400, and filmed the entire process. Video coming so...

Re: Making music with PureData on Octane 2

SGI SIlicon Graphics Incorporated SIlicon Graphics Incorporated Graphics There's yer problem. In all seriousness, SGIs do have decent sound quality, but I suspect they were too expensive for hobbyists and not really designed for pro audio work (nobody needs OpenGL pipelines for their 1990s-era audio...

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

The Octane also sounds pretty good. Not sure what hardware's in there, but it's great. I often use mine to play music when I'm working downstairs.

Re: Archiving ftp.sgi.com

I might keep around the rackable bits if I mirror it. Rackable is cool too.

Re: Archiving ftp.sgi.com

Currently running an LFTP scan to see how big it is now. Will get back to you.

Apparently it's 71GB. Not bad. Will look into mirroring that myself.

Archiving ftp.sgi.com

Hi all! As we all know, HPE has acquired SGI and is slowly in the process of merging their products into HPEs. For this reason, I am concerned that ftp.sgi.com, which hosts files for systems as far back as the IRIS 3000, may be at risk. I believe that an effort similar to jan-jaap's Techpubs archive...

Re: SGI Wallpapers made from Techpubs graphics

There's another cool part: SGI drew the insides as well! You just have to remove the outer layers (this is from an earlier test screenshot so the color is different):

SGI Wallpapers made from Techpubs graphics

While looking for some vector graphics of the Origin2000, I stumbled upon the PDF versions of SGIs TechPubs documents (archived at techpubs.jurassic.nl, thanks jan-jaap!). The PDF versions contain vector images of the systems, so I thought I might make some wallpapers using Inkscape. I just had to c...

Hmm, if there is demand at this price point I would ponder selling off part of the "corner of IP30"...
