Re: List of SGI CDs

Yeah, the part number for the box is only on the little cellophane wrapper and most people toss that when they open the box set. SGI CD part numbers that I've seen are "BASIC indexed" and not "C indexed", so the first in a series of updates for a single product will be -001, then...

Re: List of SGI CDs

I think these smaller "software library" ones are the incremental OS updates from the base 6.5 release. There are larger software library box sets that represent everything you need to scratch install IRIX.

Re: List of SGI CDs

I believe that is the base IRIX distribution. -014 is 6.5.12, so -012 might be 6.5.10 if the part numbers have any sequencing to them. Yeah, OK, that makes more sense that -012 is 6.5.12. From somewhere I got the information that -014 was 6.5.14, but it was probably from ebay and that's not always a...

Re: List of SGI CDs

This should take care of most of the duplicates: $ cat cds.txt | sort -k1 | uniq -i | awk '{ if (prev != $1) { prev = $1; print $0; } }' > cds-nodup.txt Generates this file: cds-nodup.txt Entries are sorted by part number, with duplicate part numbers removed. Still needs a human to prettify the out...

Re: List of SGI CDs

I recently asked for some help on this list and got a big listing of part numbers from a former SGI employee, so lots more was added today. Can I ask why you located your articles (and a separate table of contents) inside your 'User Page? Your contributions would be easier for other users of the wik...

Re: 11-rack ALTIX 3000

Remember, unless you inspected this in person, we have no idea of knowing what's in the racks. The auction doesn't state explicitly. They could be full of CPUs C bricks, or they could be empty.

Re: 11-rack ALTIX 3000

The bidders are anonymous, so you don't really know where it went unless someone reveals they bought it. My suspicion is that this went into the SGI reseller market and someone will sell it to a company or other organization that can put it to good use. At $9500 it didn't go to a scrap dealer.

Re: 11-rack ALTIX 3000

It could go quite high, gsa extends the auction when people bid on it near the end, so there's no effective last-second sniping :)
