Re: Alphaserver DS15

Thanks for the info, I was already planning on switching to sid from Lenny, but I opted for installing from the network boot CD you mentioned. After updating the initial install with apt-get, the bootmenu goes full retard with disk UUIDs so I had to edit and add the devices instead for it to boot co...

Re: Alphaserver DS15

Hello, After several failed attempts at getting gentoo on the DS15 (it would switch back to SRM console at different stages of install) and NetBSD (seems the problem is memory overlap with SRM), I decided to try out Debian Lenny. Install went just fine (only had to supply a mirror by hand since Lenn...

Re: building current CDE on Alpha

Hello,
I have OpenBSD on my DS15, but as far as I know, there is no X support yet. So even if you manage to build CDE it would not work (correct me if I'm wrong).

Re: Alphaserver DS15

Hello, An update on the DS15. SRM upgrade was done using another ISO image. RAM upgraded to 1GB (4x256MB sticks). On a sidenote, seems like the Octane2 RAM *might* be interchangeable with the DS15 RAM. Physically they fit in the slot, and from what I could find out, both are 133MHz. Don't know about...

There's a massive processor on eBay, does anyone know which processor it is? Seems like some Power or Cell processor:

Turns out the machine seems to be OK (hooking up via serial I get all the SRM boot output until it tries to boot from a disk that was removed): *** keyboard not plugged in... starting console on CPU 0 initialized idle PCB initializing semaphores initializing heap i...

Re: [Craigslist SF] SGi Visual Workstation 320 $200

My VW320 is still waiting for a W2k install. It always freezes during the early phase of installing. I have already partitioned the scsi drive in other box, but still no go.

Apple HDI45-DB15 adapter (PowerMac 6100/7100/8100).

Looking for a HDI45 to DB15 adapter. These were used on the first generation Apple Macintosh PowerPC models (6100, 7100, 8100). I recently grabbed a 6100/66 and can't hook up a monitor without the adapter. Hopefully someone here has one, PM me if you do.

Re: Accelgraphics Eclipse PCI

Thanks for the link. Installed in the Win98 box and could not get it working other than basic settings.
I'll try on W2k when I get my VW320 running.

Accelgraphics Eclipse PCI

Came upon a working Accelgraphics Eclipse PCI, but finding the drivers seems like finding a needle in a haystack. I plugged into a Win98 box (since the card is from that era), but I only get limited VGA. Does anyone know if W2k includes the drivers, or if there is a link to them? The card is full le...

Re: PC case recommendations?

Depending on the motherboard's size you can use a retro case....like a PS/1 case, or some other landmark model (Commodore 16, etc..).
