Re: Fuel hardware aggregator edits ?

While the OP of each of the Aggregators could certainly consolidate info from follow-up posts into the aggregated content, the mods have kept up with making most of the changes. Mostly because it takes moderator-level access to split the follow-up posts off into their own topic (once the new content...

Re: Help with Tezro

I've got a Tezro from ebay and is not working. I don't know if it worked prior shipping or not, but now it gives 0011c01 error during BOOT, then Gfx. conf. error and the red LED stays on. I've seen on an old posting that a fan (#2) might be the problem. Where can I find a list with error codes and ...

Re: Origin 3200 Power Supply

I'd tend to agree with japes. FWIW I don't think you'll be able to use the individual modules without the control logic provided by the Power Bay. If it might prove helpful, there's a historical discussion on the Power Bay in this post..... http://forums.nekochan.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16718542...

Re: Onyx 2 Possible mid plane issue

And that is it - the system is now running normally with both RMs and I have an IR3 Onyx2 ;o) Ran the Hong Kong demo and it ran at least 3 times faster than my Origin2000 with MXE. This made me happy ;o) Glad to hear you were able to successfully resolve the issue. So there seems to be a weird quir...

Re: SGI IRIX tape drive compatibility questions

You probably need to tweak the provided-by-IRIX DLT definition, which is located in /var/sysgen/master.d/scsi . If either of your tape drives appear on the Desktop as "Cartridge" drive rather than a "DAT" or "DLT" drive, you'll need to tweak the associated definition to...

Re: New octane does nothing

Out of curiosity do the front plane status LEDs fail to show a link with any of the monitored / installed hardware? The last stone-cold-dead system module I ran into wouldn't illuminate the BaseIO and Heart LEDs. http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/SGI_Octane ... plane_LEDs

You'll need to invoke the rulesoverride option in SoftwareManager before starting your install.

Re: EBAY US - What's this? Infinite Performance

Do you recall if you ever performed any application testing (Maya, Alias, etc)? I'm also curious why you got rid of that setup if it was boosting performance? While I occasionally played with Maya and a few of the other classic SGI graphics apps that might benefit from the Compositor, my usage styl...

Re: SGI PCI card 4 Port USB Card 9210286 on my ONYX4

Can anyone help me? Your USB card might be bad, but a more likely suspect would be how IRIX handles the connection of previously unused I/O devices. When you change from a PS/2 to USB keyboard/mouse, ioconfig adds the new USB kb&m to its configuration list but leaves the PS/2 kb&m active. I...

Re: Q: Octane DIVO GALILEO15?

I have it with 6.5.11_divodvc_2.4, 6.5.11_divodvc_2.4 is the software package for the O2k/Onyx2 Digital Video Option. The Onyx2 Divo can be made to work in an Octane, but is definitely not a configuration that was envisioned/supported by SGI (so it may not be well supported by some editing applicat...

Re: Was this PCI-X card used in SGI Flame/Smoke systems ?

Not recognized at probably excludes the possibility it appeared in the "PCI Adpater ID" section of an hinv -vm or in the output of a run against the L1 PCI command. On the odd chance it made an appearance in either location (and the even less likely possibility you haven't already btdt), i...
