Re: Looking for dmSDK

What you have is probably dmedia_eoe and low level drivers (xtdigvid). What you're looking for is dmedia_dev.

It's on Overlay disc 2 of 3, and the base system is on the Development Libraries disc.

Re: your latest purchase

I got a beagle last December. She's a sweetie :) I can't belive how long we went with no dog in our lives! (Sure, we have a rabbit, and a fish, but it's not the same :D Cute overload :D We both work and that wouldn't be fair for a dog. So we have cats. These two we got as a pair, two males. The yel...

Re: SGI Onyx 10000 - memory and serial issues

Yeah, there's one on the IO4 and one on the system controller. The IO4 is very thick, it's a 16 layer PCB if I remember correctly. I wasn't able to desolder anything on it, so I modified it with a CR2032 battery while it was installed on the IO4.

The Dallas on the system controller is in a socket.

Re: Weight of a SGI Onyx Terminator / Moving suggestions

According to the manual it weighs 560 - 800 lbs. That's lot to tip over without killing someone. Power supplies are not that heavy (a rack has three, total weight maybe 25kg). Also, they're in the bottom of the rack, and you probably want to remove weight from the top half. I'm pretty sure you can r...

Re: SGI Onyx 10000 - memory and serial issues

Lots of errors are thrown saying memory is faulty and banks are disabled. After that , many messages saying things in slots have been changed or removed. I'd pull the MC board and remove *all* the SIMMs. That's a nasty job on an Onyx/Challenge btw. Clean the contact edges with a cotton swab and pur...

Re: Why a static address not shown on the router

Thanks. yes, the client list on the LAN. I am using a DD-WRT router. it seems not very stable and from time to time. it just refuse doing anything. They are okay now. My pfSense router does more or less the same thing. The trick here is that the router only allows 'registered' clients on the LAN an...

Re: Fuel prototype (BLUE!)

BTW, what is the PROM version? i'm wondering if the NEXTGEN logo remains across PROM updates... I guess a new PROM update will nuke it, so maybe it would be a good idea to do a dump. I have a tool that can search for Images encoded in the PROM, though i might have to dig that up somewhere. It has P...

Re: Fuel prototype (BLUE!)

Like I said, this system is retired. There are no deadlines to be met.

Can we keep OT opinions in the Everything Else section? Thanks.

Re: Onyx R10k IR deskside on the 'Bay

it is sold. i drive to get it saturday. Congrats. Hope you have fun with it! Looks like it has 2 RMs so you need to run it on 240v (208 at least...) There are only two cards under the big FP clam thing, and the right is the DG. So only on RM. But the ASO and ethernet options are worth something. Bu...

Re: Fuel prototype (BLUE!)

Having to deal with an old prototype for a business project is a "no-go" for me since there are too probability of being stopped by a dead/defective hardware or simply a device whose behavior might be unexpected. [...] So, what was/is the goal? The goal is to preserve this system in a fun...

Re: Fuel prototype (BLUE!)

IT'S ALIVE (again)

The mainboard died (or at least one DS1780 did), but I had the "NextGen" board from mopar5150 so it's more prototype than ever before

Re: your latest purchase

my current car is tiny Citroen Saxo also practically no rust for a older car like that. Cars like that are reasonably reliable, because they're basic. You could say that what's not installed can't break. I have a Suzuki Swift that is basically the same story. I also own a VW Passat (the infamous ch...

Re: your latest purchase

I didn't watch the whole compilation—are all the wraks Citröen 2CVs? :P That has to be a huge advantage of being in America: no French cars. Back then we used to say French cars started to rust in the catalogue already :mrgreen: They improved on that, but reliability (mechanically and electronicall...
