Re: anyone else runs into Stone+Wire config issues?

Ok thanks, I'll give it a shot. I actually just left work where I had that tezro, but I brought the drive with me to try in another tezro I have home so I will play with it some more. Edit: although it would make sense if I could change the offset from 0, I think the volume header of that disk was b...

Re: anyone else runs into Stone+Wire config issues?

Seems offset and length options are grey'd out for me :cry:

anyone else runs into Stone+Wire config issues? SOLVED

It seems like every time I mess with sw_config, I run into a new sort of issue. Anyone have any insight into this error?

Re: octane2: unmanaged graphics? no remote X login?

I figured out the issue - I hooked up to the console and I saw this peculiar message: odsy: frame buffer/fullscreen accum config causes oversubscription of sdram. looks like Jan-Jaap hit the nail on the head : http://forums.nekochan.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16723670&hilit=vpro+diagnostics#p73...

Re: octane2: unmanaged graphics? no remote X login?

well this is interesting - I put the cloned drive into a 3rd Tezro but with a V12 and the graphics come right up - could it be possible for a system disk from a V12 Tezro is not compatible with a V10 Tezro? This sounds crazy to me... so here is the history of the cloned disk: 1. originally clone V12...

Re: octane2: unmanaged graphics? no remote X login?

I just cloned a V12 Tezro drive - moved it into a new V10 Tezro and got hit with the "unmanaged" graphics problem. I "resetenv" from the PROM, insured console=g, did an "enableall" from the PROM just for kicks - I thought it should work, I'll try another cloned drive. I...

Re: Tezro in Bay Area, CA (not mine)

2500 is indeed very much. What would be a reasonable cost for such configrated machine? I'm going to sort of throw numbers out of my ass here, but hopefully someone can comment if these numbers are unreasonable. similar systems have sold on ebay for $500-$600(rare) to ~$1k-$1.3k, where skins and ov...

Re: 300 MHz o2 startup issues. Ram?

Did you really test the system after moving the RAM around? Like by trying to run a very memory intensive process? I ran into this sort of issue before - started playing musical chairs with the DIMMS only to get bit once I ran a highly memory intensive process

Re: 3 Years a project.

most people start with FLAME, but I'd felt a bit put of by the interface. I had it the other way around - flame seemed like just a subset of the smoke interface to me (the effects module) - I still struggle around smoke. Do you have a TBC in your setup or does the Panasonic AG 7750 have a built in ...

Re: Why can't we sell/trade original commercial software?

This is a topic I always found interesting - I can't imagine many people get their hands on a SGI and don't have an interest in running the software that made SGI's what they were (Alias, Discreet, etc), but yet we have to not discuss this. Bottom line is this site is too valuable a resource for eve...

not that I know of, but it was very easy for someone to swap in or out any PM so you can't really say for certain based on the skin
