Re: SPARCstation 2 papers scans/PS/PDF ?

It's just a sun4c machine right? unless you are looking for something very specific? Hi cb88. Thanks for your links. I downloaded these documents once before and the CPUs are not what I'm searching for. I'm searching especially for the Sun " S4 + chipset " specification from which the pre...

Re: Installing SunOS 4.1.4

I don't know why it wants to be ID 3 unless it's something about that particular model. My SCSI2SD has two partitions, 0 and 1. That works just fine here. SunOS expacting the primary hard disk to have SCSI ID 3, second drive with SCSI ID 1. It seems to be hard coded into the the (default) kernel: T...

Re: Sun CG12 / GS aka Matrox SG3-1152B graphics accelerator for 3D solid applications

Thx, have the docs already but are quite interesting. The QG-640 is from an internal view - excluding Q-bus - equal to PG-640, I suppose. And yes, the parent directory has many more stuff. ;-)
