Re: O2 w/ 1600sw with FPA - Only works in Maintenance Mode

As the error message vaguely implies, that option is for loading gamma or other display adjustments. To change the display resolution (or use a different microcode format), highlight the desired display format in the "Valid Formats" scroll box on the left side of the xsetmon window; that ...

Re: O2 w/ 1600sw with FPA - Only works in Maintenance Mode

Looks like we need to get together and get you a clean install going. I'll try and dig out my O2 today. That would be great! Do you think we can just swap in my drive, clean install and I run flashinst when I put it back in my system? My current system board came with a bad ethernet so I won't have...

Re: O2 w/ 1600sw with FPA - Only works in Maintenance Mode

On my O2 with 6.5.30 the two parameters of the boot ROM are set like this: monitor=h crt_option=1 Did you try to set the video mode with xsetmon ? Good to know the env variables are normal. I did pull down those .vfos but attempting to open them gave me a not a valid vfo or gamma profile error. Let...

Re: O2 w/ 1600sw with FPA - Only works in Maintenance Mode

I fit the FPA after. My Irix version is something less than 6.5.22 but 6.5 something. I started loading 6.5.22 install and everything was an upgrade. Going to try the upgrade when I'm sober :lol:

O2 w/ 1600sw with FPA - Only works in Maintenance Mode

Update: Solved: Just needed to update Irix 6.5.22 or later. Big thanks to japes for the help. I have a sgi master only 5 miles from me. Small world. Searches did not turn up this condition. I have an O2 with FPA and also have a MLA. When I turn on the system I get the splash (Welcome to O2) and can ...

Re: O2 R5000 180 to R5200 300 Fail!

Gah! I didn't see/find a os ver requirement just a prom requirement though I totally had it in my mind this had 6.5.22 on it before starting. I was thinking of my Indy. Ok, I'll revert back to my 5000 and try to get it to boot, then upgrade to 6.5.22 or x30 whichever I can find first. Thanks! dkbbzv...

Thanks robespierre. Got a MLA on the way so I can also use with my Indy. In the meantime I may have killed my O2 motherboard.

Re: New to O2 and got a free 1600 - LDI port?

I doesn't have the FPA :( but has a port built into the logic board next to the VGA out that fits the 1600 cable. Curious what it's for. I'm looking for a cheap MLA or adapter card now. Here's a pic of one (not mine) with the FPA, clearly a daughter card to the right of the on board VGA. Curious wha...

New to O2 and got a free 1600 - LDI port?

I'm just confirming the port next to the VGA port cannot drive the 1600SW? I need to buy the adapter card correct? What is this port for?
Friend from vintage gave me a good condition 1600 so I guess I need to shop for the adapter.
Thanks in advance!

Re: Indy never completes system startup

Hard to get ample hack time with 2 young boys. Here's my inittab contents if this helps (which is way off of the default I found at http://csweb.cs.wfu.edu/~torgerse/Kokua/SGI/007-2859-021/sgi_html/ch03.html) Also, I'm going to try to read most these guides and perhaps can self help in the next few ...
