Re: SGI O2 Skins

This is not an O2+ system though, and I think that's cheating a bit. Plus I'd have to find all the _other_ purple pieces like the base and the cdrom cover, which is harder to find than blue O2 skins.

Thanks though.

Re: So I'm having a problem installing IRIX

I got some CDs today, so I'll do a CD install. I still want to get the install server working, because this won't be my last SGI. I'll try it on my nekkid one tonight. I've resetenv several times. How do I tell which unix.IP** file it needs?

Re: So I'm having a problem installing IRIX

The images I have, I believe are EFS images.

Re: So I'm having a problem installing IRIX

I'm having a beer and calming my shit. SGI did not make IRIX intuitive to install.

Re: So I'm having a problem installing IRIX

Yeah. I've gotten to the last section of this guide. When I do "Install system software" -> remote directory -> 192.168.2.11:irix/3/dist it pulls the installation tool "Inst 4.1 Main Menu" so I go into the admin section, do a 'sethostipaddr' and a 'sethostname' to bring up the ne...

So I'm having a problem installing IRIX

I've been following this (http://techpubs.spinlocksolutions.com/irix/remote-irix-6.5-installation-from-linux.html) guide and "SGI-ified" my tftp server I have on my raspi. Partitioning goes on without a hitch. It does get its files off the raspi. But when I start the install, setup the net...

The O2 Twins

I got the second O2, which totally works (not bad for $99) He's got a 180Mhz processor, and 64 megs of RAM, and just the audio interface. Surprisingly he came with an original SGI drive manufactured by IBM. I don't know how big the disc is, I'm installing IRIX now. https://scontent-dft4-2.xx.fbcdn.n...

Re: Nekoware Mirrors

Those things might be out. I don't own the server and really for things like that, the SDF community has to really be behind it for anything like that to happen. What we loose in features, we gain in raw bandwidth and storage.

Re: Nekoware Mirrors

After spending the evening mirroring Elf's server, the SDF mirror is now in place. Address is..... ftp://ftp.sdf.org/pub/computers/sgi It's got a phat pipe and is hosted in a datacenter on stable machines. We can add other tidbits to the mirror as well. If anyone is in contact with Nekonoko, maybe l...

Re: Nekoware Mirrors

Oh, I'm not giving up half way. We're now at the "F"s. I haven't heard back from SMJ (not nekochan SMJ) of SDF to see about a mirror there.

Re: Nekoware Mirrors

Yeah. A faster server would be nice. I started this download at about 8pm last night, and I've only gone as far as the "E" packages. And it's 3:00pm CST
