Still important - but no change to Shiunbird's howto video - when creating an initrd use the targeted approach instead of generic , as yaboot seems to have a file size limit for the intrd it loads or it does not reserve enough memory for both kernel and initrd: Should have mentioned that yaboot gav...

Does anyone have a B132l or similar series box? If so would they be kind enough to take a picture of the system board near the front audio jacks? I acquired one that suffered some damage and sheered this one part off. It currently does not power up and this may be the cause. Thanks.

Reposting this for a friend. Some SGI exhibits include a Jurassic Classic Crimson and some large Onyx racks. Other systems from DEC, Cray, IBM, HP, and Sun are on display. LSSM has been closed for renovations and expansion for the past several months; we've added nearly a thousand square feet of new...
Finally. With rpm I had conflicts where X needed Y, so you try and install Y and it says it needs X... So the hell with it, force everything. You should have seen me trying to install ffmpeg. Nothing seems to compile cleanly with gcc either.

There is a really good book that explains everything called "Inside The AS/400". I've been meaning to pick up a copy. When you see what IBM moved into silicon you'll wonder why we still use the architecture we do.
Today I took everything apart to do a thorough cleaning (lots of dust) and found the cause :D If you do an ARIN lookup on that IP address from my hinv, it belongs to the Department Of Defense :lol: Guess they were worried about secrets being stolen in the chip. Oh maybe the "number in a can&quo...
Your NIC is bad. You'll need a new number-in-a-can or a frontplane. As for the irix problem with the wrong graphics board, you'll need to reinstall the graphics subsystem. Wow that was a fast reply :D Just had a thought here. I have a spare O2 riser card with the TO-92 style chip. It would be an in...
Hello all, I just scored an Octane from eBay. Its a dual 300Mhz and didn't come with any ram so I moved the simms over from my dead Octane and it's alive! I was able to boot with a serial console and clear the prom password. So far so good. When booting with a serial console I'm getting this error n...
Hey all, just a quick note. I have to retract my statement about Linux support now. I tried openSUSE and it installed without a hitch and gave me a working system (with an up to date kernel 4.10.1). Don't waste your time with Debian, its installer is buggy and you have to play games trying to get so...
I run Debian on my Power5. It was a pain to get it booting however. After months trying to sort things out, I found out that the installer was reading the wrong devalias from the OpenFirmware (or the OpenFirmware was sending it wrong to the installer). This at the time of configuring the boot loade...
