Re: 1st time boot into guest but why no start tune?

The power button on my Octane is somewhat unreliable, so I shut it down using the shutdown script in /etc, cd to /etc and do ./shutdown -p -y

Though I fear your machine is becoming the Oak Island of Octane restoration projects, there is still an 030-0887-005/B system module on Ebay for a measly 75 smackers...

Re: New octane does nothing

I just put a paperclip in pin 2 on one end and pin 3 on the other and it did work, pin 2 in one and pin 2 on the other and nothing... so it is a null modem cable. I guess the machine is just toast! That seems a reasonable conclusion, but the fact that the XIO indicator leds come up correctly would ...

Re: New octane does nothing

What Colour are the skins on your Octane, Green or Blue? [Edit] I think it's green by the looks in the video. You sort of want to be careful about how much money this absorbs from you. Since you have come this far though, you may as well go for a MB. So I should just go for that board? Alright. Tha...

Re: New octane does nothing

Honestly I wonder if I've just gotten extremely unlucky and the cable I ordered still isn't a true null-modem cable. This is the 13w3 cable I ordered , shouldn't it be correct? I wonder if both the cables just don't work properly or something and I just got super unlucky. I kind of doubt it, but ma...

My VBOB usage has been strictly limited to using it with discreet products and if I get signal present output when I serial into the VBOB I'm generally happy.

Re: New octane does nothing

Presumably that's the disk that came with it? With some version of IRIX on it? Yeah, it should have 6.5.30 on it. What I've always done, when a disk won't spin up, is take a butter knife and gently tap the top of the drive at powerup, hopefully helping the platter(s) overcome the static coefficient...
