Re: Fixing V6/V8 glitch fx

Attached is a 1280x1024_50 vfo. I didn't know what monitor you'll be using, so the timing is derived from a random 1280x1024 modeline that happened to be handy (for a Dell 1905FP.) Not all monitors will play nice with a 50Hz refresh rate (or off-the-cuff timing), so if it doesn't work we might need ...

Re: Origin 3200 Console Access

If your O3200 came with an L2 controller you can connect to the L2 console port and manage and issue the correct brick start-up sequence for the entire system from there. The L2 also has a ethernet port, so you could use Control D or T to access the L1/L2 or system consoles from any system on that s...

Re: Dubious Tezro on ebay (certainly not mine!)

The XIO card connector is on the back side of the PCI riser. The AGP riser of the Onyx4 has no XIO card connector; the space is taken by the Image Sync cables. Robespierre's explanation is right on the money; for those of us who are visually oriented, I dug a AGP riser out of storage and took a few...

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

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...
