Re: Indigo R3000 ROM versions (re SSD)

From http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/PROM it looks like you have one of the latest PROM revision for the R3K Indigo, not one of the earliest. Can you give us the version string in the PROM firmware? So i can add it to the Wiki. I have the SCSI2SD as primary disk in an R4K Indigo but not in my R3K yet (...

Have a look here

If you browse around you will find PROM images of the Personal Iris which also has an R3k

Re: Indy and indigo2 emulation in MESS (WIP)

I think you can give C coding the emulator in Qemu a try. Qemu is pure C so you don't need to carry the C++ luggage with you, like what happened in MAME. I have some skeleton stuff derived form the MIPS Magnum. Qemu has a pure R4000 core and i'm not too familiar with the differences with a VR4300. P...

Re: Indy and indigo2 emulation in MESS (WIP)

Thanks Ozone for joining us here and showing your work in this post. There is a lot of stuff to cover from your first post. I'll have to reread it a few times, but i have seen the VR4300 layout video which looks very instructive. I am planning on trodding along with qemu to get something emulated, s...

Re: 6.5 packages

Just a note that License information for HPN-SSH is completely absent. Apparently the patch has been offered to the openssh developers, so it could surface as BSD license which openssh has now. Until then any licensing issues are unsolved.

Re: Disable nis

Oh man, that was a long time ago i used NIS at the uni. Have a look at your /etc/passwd file and make sure there is a regular entry for root, not just a line with +:+::: or something similar. Other places where NIS (or YellowPages as it is used to be called) leaves its mark is /etc/yp.conf and /var/...

Re: Windows 10 Enterprise help needed

Nothing like that, I have two SATA drives, Win 10 on C: drive and Norton backups on D: drive. There is an old installation of WinXP on the D: drive but it's not set up to dual boot Hm, you could try to disconnect D: and restart the update. Does it fail at a specific percentage when you're greeted w...

Re: Windows 10 Enterprise help needed

Any weerd dualboot setup you're running? Maybe installed on an NVME disk so you're booting UEFI? I had this fall update lockup on my game rig with W10Pro on NVME SSD and linux on HD. Turns out i had to pull the SATA plug on the HD so the fall creator update on the NVME could go through. It is also p...

Re: IRIX 6.5.22 Remote Install (?)

For a remote install you need a system which can act as an IRIX install server. Usually we employ a second IRIX machine to do the job or resort to linux systems with suitable configurations or even virtual machines but if you want to use the Raspberry PI for this purpose, it should be possible with ...

Re: ipfilterd udp

Suppose you want to run nfs services from within your home network to the octane, did you perform an attempt of directly connecting the octane to the nfs server omitting the router? This way you can check three possible causes: - if Gigabit speeds are attainable - if ipfilter(d) causes havoc just be...

Re: SCSI2SD v6 vs Indy

See this tread: http://forums.nekochan.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16731287&hilit=scsi2sd+cdrom Apparently the SCSI2SD v5 does not like to be paired with other devices on the SCSI chain, this may happen to the v6 as well. Since the Indy only has one controller, i'm afraid you're stuck with eithe...

Re: IRIX remote install from macOS

Have never used a docker, may have to look at doing a simple debian install on a spare drive. Edit: ...or can I just fire up a VM Debian install and do it through that? Well a Debian install on a spare drive would be a bit overkill, but before you go that route, try a docker or a VM. I made the doc...
