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: EBAY US - What's this? Infinite Performance

I have one of the second generation SGI Graphics Compositors (with USB ports). When connected it announces its presence in a gfxinfo run as a "cbob": USB Compositor -1 port 0 attached to channel 0 nic 0x1004a768 CMP: NIC #: 4e52.5631.3539 (family: ff) Serial #: NRV159 Part #: 030_1857_002 ...

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...

Re: Can you boot an O350 over NFS?

Wondering because I've gotten myself a mystery O350 on the way without an IO9 kit. I do have an O300 here though and I wanted to know if I can make the O350 boot with an NFS root on the O300 or not. If you haven't already made other arrangements, you could link NUMAlink the O300 and O350 and let th...

Re: Does anybody use DVD-RAM discs?

So, I am using a couple of DVD-RAM units inside a SCSI tower. Good technology, it works on linux, although.. you need some tricks because the cartridge is not handled as "disk". It's more like a writable DVD, it doesn't directly support blocks of 512 byte, therefore you also need to pass ...

Re: Onyx2 trouble

Swapped out the DM board and everything is looking good. Glad to hear you're up and running! The remarks about replacing RAM chips that 'irsaudit' spews out are for SGI engineers. It doesn't even say where on the board to replace anything so it's not very useful for an end user. FWIW, I seem to rec...

Not a lot of info out there on the DM7. There's a brief mention of the DM7 inside the IRIX 6.5.30 kernel inventor...
