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...

Have you reset the PROM environment on the Indigo 2 as described in http://shiftleft.com/mirrors/dina.harrydebug.com/ ?

Yep. Double checked. I have attached the error it puts out when it gets Ethernet info.

Re: Indigo 2 panic with ethernet

I have an old post that runs through setting up an O2 to connect through a Windows 7 PC. Perhaps that will help. http://forums.nekochan.net/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=16726535&p=7349828#p7349828 The problem there though is that I can't even install irix. I've had no luck burning cds and the Ether...

Indigo 2 panic with ethernet

So I'm trying to use the Ethernet port on my indigo 2 for network installation but whenever it tries to use Ethernet with a cable plugged in, the system crashes with the bad address 0x8. Removing the hard drive and CD Rom didn't change anything but when I unplug the Ethernet, it only complains about...

Re: Creating irix installation disks on windows

I know this may not help your original issue, but I turned my back on CD installs a few years ago and setup network install repositories on most of my SGI machines. If you do it right, create a directory with all the relevant files in a single dist, then installs take 20 mins or so. As for burning ...

Re: Using dina on windows 10

So since I cant find a good way to burn irix onto cds to be read by the cd rom im stuck with dina... Why is that? Does the usual set of commands (ran on Linux) does not work? 1) To create image from existing CD: dd if=/dev/cdrom of=cd-image.img 2) To save it onto another CD: wodim -vv -eject cd-ima...
