Re: Onyx Problems, seemingly power related

I'm guessing you have not replaced and/or reformed the capacitors in the power supply? I just did that with the power supply in my Octane. It was not great fun, but it made the power supply come back to life.

Re: SGI O2 HDD caddy (STL file needed for 3D printing)

kubatyszko: I cannot imagine true SGI workstation without a crappy plastic case. In fact, I would like to print the optical drive front plate which is missing on two of my O2 workstations. Unfortunately, there is no ABS/PLA filament with this dark blue color. Are you able to find a filament with th...

Re: SGI O2 HDD caddy (STL file needed for 3D printing)

HurricaneJames: I would not be able to make such object in openscad. It would take at least one day even with all useful macros that a friend of mine created. Long time ago I was creating graphics elements for 3D games so I used an old 3D modeler tool to make the most of this model (it has only 700...

Re: SGI O2 HDD caddy (STL file needed for 3D printing)

How long did it take you to become proficent in openscad? I decided to give it a try for a similar project, it took hours to create anything, and my model has lots of floating point issues where vertices do not line up perfectly. I'm sure it it is just ramp up pains, but cannot even estimate the tim...

Re: OSX Snow Leopard - NTFS Support

Did you try MacFUSE?

I think I used to use Paragon back in the Panther/Tiger days, but it seems they only support newer versions of OSX now. They might still have the old software around if you email them.

Re: SGI O2 HDD caddy (STL file needed for 3D printing)

Nice printer. That thing has huge build volume. Mine is about an 3cm to small for the sled, so I'm going to have to break it up and glue it, at least for the first couple prototypes.

Re: SGI Drive Sled Models

There's one part that relies on itself slightly bending so as to lock in place The the little locking tooth on the handle, yeah. I think ABS should do it. Technically, I have access to some really nice 3D printers, but my company would not be happy if I used them for this, so I'm stuck with my litt...

SGI Drive Sled Models

I recently decided that my new Octane needs more drives. Surprisingly, drives are not that difficult to find. Drive sleds on the other hand... :shock: I'm certain people around here have some extra they could sell, but they don't look that hard to make. After all, I have a laser cutter and 3D printe...

Re: Dodoid Mini Indigo is now on sale!

Also, to HurricaneJames, I believe 5dwm/MaXX is available only as x86 binaries due to licensing restrictions from SGI. As such, running on the Raspberry Pi or ODROID's x86 processor may not work. Oh, good point. Kronos 2.0 looks pretty nifty, I'll definitely give that a whirl when you release it. A...

This the first Silicon Graphics machine that I admin and generally remembering how painful SGI could be to the uninitiated Contradiction? Not really. The first SGI I used was an O2.

Safe Shutdown

I got my Octane running! This the first Silicon Graphics machine that I admin, so I'm not sure about a lot of things. Lack of knowledge did not deter me though. I managed to get the machine up and login. It calls itself "voodoo" and has 4 accounts: root, EZsetup, demos, and guest. I have n...
