Re: How to play Audio CD's on an Indy ?

Playing Audio CD's with an Indy will only work with external Toshiba/Pioneer SCSI CDROM/DVDROM drives with specific firmware which support Audio-over-SCSI. See for instance viewtopic.php?t=16719432

I have updated the Wiki earlier to reflect this compatibility issue.

Re: What extremely rare (non-prototype) computers do you wish you could find?

On behalf of one of my friends i am still looking out for a Sun 486i Apache

He says that there were several prototypes in the Netherlands and claims to have seen them, but they were recalled by Sun.

Re: Sun Ultra 25 in Multinomah OR

What an incredible amount of SGI stuff! Looks to include some OEM'd models of the Indigo and ChallengeS, very nice.

Even the Indigo R4K Badges for the Elan and Server, whoa!

Re: Cool (open source) software you would like to see ported...

How did it go with OpenSSL ? Did is there a new version for irix ready yet? Both Canavan and me have compiled and tested openSSL 1.0.2j/k succesfully. Unfortunately RealLife got in the way of me working a lot on SGI's, but most of the crap has left my head so i can focus on packaging this for both ...

Re: Irix 6.5.22 on R4000 Indigo Last MIPSPro version

Which 32 bit headers are you referring to? The o32 or the n32? If it doesn't install by default then it might be that there is a patch needed to make it install under 6.5.22 . The R4000 is finnicky in that there are several bugs which impacts performance. This also makes it really cool to try and te...

Re: Getting crimson set up - Hard drive issues

It's not your install media. The fx.IP17 on the IRIX 6.2 disk is botched, see:

Re: any XLV experts?

Make sure to do an xfsdump/restore of your root disk before you delete the XLV labels.

I have ran a XLV mirror across two stripe sets, but never performed it on the boot disk. It probably needs some magic in the volume header, which is why you should back it up.

Re: SGI PROM binaries?

Well, can you enter the PROM via serial console? And if so, can you run diagnostics?

So the Rev C PROM is the -004 version? Good, i've put that in the Wiki: http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/PROM#SGI_I ... nge_M_PROM

What IRIX version does the vfe driver need to support? For 5.3 and 6.2, amazingly, ftp.sgi.com is still up with this: ftp://ftp.sgi.com/sgi/netdrv/

Re: Indy - problems with XL8

The REX3 seems to be doing its job, interfacing the graphics subsystem with the Indy. You could check for any lifted pins on the individual ASIC's although the REX3 (under the heatsink) is the most probable victim for these kinds of errors. Before you trash it and source a new XL8 (They are somewhat...
