Re: your latest purchase

Correct, but it's not the one I purchased on eBay. The principle is he sent the wrong item. It would be like somebody sending you newer green octane skins when you bought original cube logo ones. The skins still work, they are green octane skins but it's not the item you bought...simple principles i...

Re: your latest purchase

He sold -001 rev C, he sent -003 rev B.

As another member has pointed out, there were historic issues with eBay sellers getting antsy about comments on here so I've removed his eBay store name from my posts.

The board passed diags and I'm keeping it.

Re: your latest purchase

A 300Mhz O2 board, his photo showed the rev with the blue patch wire and different L3 cache layout. His response was very abrupt, finishing with "I never said the picture is what you get". Why the fuck put a photo up then? If you put up a photo of something then that is what you sell. He n...

Re: your latest purchase

Bought a 300mhz O2 cpu module on eBay, asswipe sent me the wrong board (not the same as the photo, even remotely!) so I'm £26 out of pocket on import duties and have to pay to post it back...


EDIT - seller name removed as advised by another member so neko doesn't get hassled.

Re: Octane in UK

Syl, Was it the one for $99? I bought that one for $75, should be here beginning of next week.

512mb is a nice amount of Ram for a standard ish O2.

Network traffic

Could anybody advise how to check for transfer speed (bits or bytes) via ethernet port? I'm busying transferring stuff from my debian NFS server and it's taking for ever, even for a measly 600mb.

Could be either command via debian / irix. Thanks.

Re: Octane1 2x300MHz, 2GB RAM, EMXI

Wow, looks great! Is this the eBay 'paypal will be refunded job?' No, the EZSetup should not have that effect. Just checked my 6.5.30 O2 install, both fonts match. I assume you installed from overlay 1, fed in the other 'disks' and then just went on from there? Try Toolchest -> Desktop -> Customize ...

Re: your latest purchase

256mb of Kingston O2 Ram, brand new never seen the contacts of a motherboard. :) Might as well add a 'Win' for the day. Managed to set up NFS on my debian drive which is currently serving my irix install media as well as the current nekoware packages. My networking knowledge is zip, zero, nil, nothi...

Lovely config you have, the dual 300mhz is no slouch and should run just about anything you throw at it.

If it's gonna live on your desk / below your desk consider getting the psu fan and scsi backplane fan swapped for quieter ones.

Re: Octane in UK

I'll hopefully pimp my O2 with a 300mhz cpu soon and get it to 384mb. Will most likely get it set up, fully installed with nekoware then box it up till I can free up space to have it out. It's either my near quiet 400mhz Octane or my little toaster, and the Octane is just so so much faster. Hope you...
