Re: Installing SunOS 4.0.3c on SPARCstation IPC

I'm out of my mind. Of course! The IPC is more a repackaged SS1+. Maybe I confused with the IPX which was released after the SS2. I was wondering why the IPC is able to use an even "older SunOS release" than the SS2. Not should write answers so late. Thanks for correction. :-D Why not? Don...

Re: Installing SunOS 4.0.3c on SPARCstation IPC

The Sun IPC was announced in July 1990 and the minimum SunOS should be more like 4.1.1 (aka Solaris 1.0) because it was announced after the SPARCstation 2 for which SunOS 4.1.1 was the minimum. The $9,995 (U.S. list) SPARCstation IPC comes complete with a 16-inch, high-resolution color monitor, 207-...

Re: Sun Ultra 2 Creator without graphic card

Are you sure the SBus framebuffer you got is working? Some details about cabling and monitor, please. Tried to get more info via serial console cable, for ext test/POST run? Video output should work with all kinds of framebuffers, (SBus, UPA). You could also reset NVRAM to defaults. <STOP> + <N> Ser...

Re: Which SGI box is your favorite and why?

I had access to only two machines: An :O2: which was the system of a friend who used it with Maya, but not for serious work. He had also media for some flame version but no dongle, licenses or disk subsystem. Ironically he had to work with combustion 2 under Windows instead. Later bought an :Octane:...

Re: VGA terminator == VGA dummy connector?

VGA dummy like this on the internet auction house (I'm not the seller or any kind of representative): http://www.ebay.de/itm/Graphics-Card-Display-Powered-VGA-Detection-Dummy-Plug-CablesOnline-VE-D02-/271831175823 So now I'm really confused about the necessity. :mrgreen: The manual of the board also...

VGA terminator == VGA dummy connector?

Hi,
I'm wondering if a VGA terminator is the same like a VGA dummy for achieving VGA passthrough over a VESA feature connector?
I'm asking before I put some investment and time into some resistors and an VGA plug.
Cheers, escimo

Does Nekochan forum have a simple method of presenting their web sites, like WAP, as well? Try to open the forum with Netscape 3 from an i486 under Solaris 2.4 x86 and it didn't work (Bad req err code 400...). After some google usage should be problem with cookies. Found no way to dissable cookies u...

It's just a sun4c machine right? unless you are looking for something very specific? Hi cb88. Thanks for your links. I downloaded these documents once before and the CPUs are not what I'm searching for. I'm searching especially for the Sun " S4 + chipset " specification from which the pre...

Re: Installing SunOS 4.1.4

I don't know why it wants to be ID 3 unless it's something about that particular model. My SCSI2SD has two partitions, 0 and 1. That works just fine here. SunOS expacting the primary hard disk to have SCSI ID 3, second drive with SCSI ID 1. It seems to be hard coded into the the (default) kernel: T...
