Re: SPECviewperf®

I've compiled SPECviewperf 6.1.2 on my SGI Octane2 (400-MHz R1200, 2GB RAM, ODYSSEY V6). When I compare my results with the results below, I'm surprised that they are about 50-70% of SGI 320 Visual Workstation: https://www.spec.org/gwpg/pastissues/Feb00/opc.data/summary.html#3Dlabs Is that correct? ...

Re: SGI Fuel, cannot power on (ALERT: Error probing... timeout)

Voltage levels looked ok when I forced the PSU to start, but it was just a quick measurement and not everything was measured.

Re: SGI Fuel, cannot power on (ALERT: Error probing... timeout)

I finally tried Ctrl+T (and many other key combinations) but it didn't do anything. L1 only repeatedly outputs the timeout messages.

Is this a typical behavior when the Dallas chip's battery is drained?

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

That's interesting! Is that benchmark freely available for use and do you have a results page for your tested machines? Unfortunately, I have never found enough time to create a website with an interactive browser of all results. See attached for the benchmark binaries, source code and all results ...

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

Recent pointless things? 1) Restoring SGI 320 to a working condition which included replacing a full bag of capacitors. Why pointless? Because it is probably the ugliest and the most useless machine SGI has ever built. I was just curious how the system that John Carmack used for developing Quake III...

Re: HP-UX compilers

They've discontinued the product? :shock: It’s still alive. I ordered and installed one a few months ago. There are two reasons why it is difficult to find enough info: 1) The insensitive hp.com-to-hpe.com transition that broke many URLs. 2) There is no pressure on fixing this as there are no new c...

SGI Fuel, cannot power on (ALERT: Error probing... timeout)

Hi everyone, I finally decided to look at the Fuel I bought many years ago (after replacing all capacitors in SGI 320, this is my last non-working SGI machine). The purchaser told me that the PSU was probably defective. The machine doesn’t respond on pressing the power button. I tried to short the l...

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

Hi everyone, I'm glad to see that the caddy has 8+3 downloads already. I would not expect so many so quickly. I would definitely appreciate a feedback from those who tried to print it so that I would learn how it came out from different printers. Pictures of your prints are welcome! You can notice i...

A cage printed from ABS... Don't forget: ABS juice or glue needed to prevent warping! :) Dodoid, HurricaneJames: I'm curious about the results of your printing. Regarding the "project" - Unfortunately, I don't have much free time* to participate in such things more seriously - I usually do...

See attached for the source files. There is a README file with all instruction so please read it before printing. Please note that this model is provided "as-is" with no guarantee, explicit or implied, that it would work as intended and would not cause damage or harm. Use it at your own ri...

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

The second prototype works well. It took 13 hours and 51 minutes to print the model (113 grams of the material were used) on Prusa i3 MK2.

I will send all source files tomorrow so anyone can print this hdd caddy at home.

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.

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

uunix: I would recommend the current generation of Prusa i3 printers. It's still more a hobby thing and I see many aspects that could be improved (software, produced noise, default slicer configuration), however the print quality is comparable with much more expensive printers. I've bought it as a k...

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

(After sixteen hours of printing) The first prototype is done... and... it doesn't work very well :)

It was necessary to tweak it with a knife. Now it is possible to insert it in the computer but it is hard to pull it out.

The next version might be ok.
