Re: Getting irix onto indigo2 r10k

CDRW is likely the issue. A lot of standard CD-ROM drives (especially earlier ones) will not read CDRWs. Hopefully burning it onto a standard CDR will help. You will of course still need some of the other disks as Dodoid mentioned. Foundation 1/2 and the Applications disks are required as a bare mi...

Re: Getting irix onto indigo2 r10k

I have never had good luck with Internet Archive images, even for non-bootable discs. Try the ones from WinWorld. Alright. Will use those from now on. dks0d3s8: Device not ready: Medium not present dks0d3s8: drive is not ready Unable to execute dksc(0,3,8)sashARCS: media not loaded It doesn't matte...

Re: Getting irix onto indigo2 r10k

Okay, that link is the Installation Tools disc. Do you have the others? An IRIX 6.5.22 or 6.5.30 installation consists of two Foundation discs, three Overlay discs, and some semi-optional bits like an Applications disc and an NFS disc. The standalone Installation Tools disc was discontinued during ...

Re: Getting irix onto indigo2 r10k

So if it isnt the cd drive then am i just burning the img files wrong? How are you burning the img files? Do you know if the image files are complete images of the original CDs, including all partitions? Please be specific about what you are doing. I am getting the disk image from https://archive.o...

Re: Getting irix onto indigo2 r10k

Alright. So after more unrecognized media errors i think the drive i have is the problem. From what i have found the cd rom has to be "sgi bootable" . Nope, not an issue at all for the Indigo2. Forget all of that. A Toshiba XM-5401 with the normal firmware is already compatible. So if it ...

Getting irix onto indigo2 r10k

My next option was dina, which failed because whenever the comp uter tried to access the internet, it w...

Re: Creating irix installation disks on windows

If you have Linux with EFS support, you should be able to mount the images. Do you have a example of a distro that supports that? I messed with Ubuntu for awhile with no luck. Debian 'stable' here: # cat /etc/debian_version 8.7 # ls -l 812-0119-006_IRIX_5.3.efs -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 525074432 Nov ...

Re: Why can't we sell/trade original commercial software?

What's particularly irksome is that if you call any of these commercial software vendors and ask to buy their IRIX versions they will not sell them to you! Autodesk made a huge mistake when they discontinued the Maya personal learning edition, their 30 day free trial is useless, unless you spend 8 ...

Re: Indigo 2 panic with ethernet

I upgraded my R4400 Impact (Ready) to R10000 with an ebay motherboard several months ago. Added a Solid Impact board from ebay too so it's actually Impact - kind of wish I had a 10000 badge but oh well... Your problem sounds like a bad network interface sadly and probably won't change much with an ...

Ah. No. You have to upgrade the board to upgrade the CPU. :x

Damn. I saw an r10000 board on eBay that is identical to the one I have but I'll wait for the transceiver before I go spend more money on this computer.

Re: Indigo 2 panic with ethernet

Don't despair you can always pick up an aui transceiver and try that. Failing that, check with Krokodil as he was selling a motherboard Yup. $50.00 USD for an Indigo2 IMPACT mainboard with R4400 250MHZ processor! It will be going on Ebay soon otherwise, because it's sitting around taking up space a...

I tried that too and had the same issue. I think my motherboard might be bad..
