Re: INDY & the INTERNET

Under IRIX 6.5 I'm not sure. Under IRIX 6.5.22 it is a sub-install located in the " IRIX Execution Enviornment" folder.
It is spelled out though....."POINT-TO-POINT PROTOCOL".eoe. In software manager click the small folder icon next to th Execution listing. Good Luck

All the settings are correct. The problem is that you are using a CDRW. A plain CD Reader will not read a CDRW disk as it does not posess the higher intensity laser necessary to read a Rewriteable disk.Try burning it to a CDR instead and try again. ..... Good Luck...

SGI (Teac) Floppy Fix

After aquiring an R4000 INDIGO w/defective Teac floppy drive, research here indicates this faulty floppy syndrome is widespread.It appears (on this unit anyway) that the prolem may affect all of them.The SCSI adapter was fine, the problem seems to be on the drive itself.To repair the drive ,remove t...

Thanx for the tip. May be a good time to leave well enough alone.It seems strange that on a previous attempt at installing 6.5.10f,in exactly the same order, revealed similar results.However after several reboots and restarts these icons mysteriously re-apeared.No such luck on this install though.Th...
