I have a the other boards, and want an XL to complete the collection. It would be interesting to test it against the other boards, and I have a videoboard that would go nice with an XL. There is a complete low spec I2 with XL on eBay at the moment, but shipping for a whole I2 is too expensive. /Bjo...

Are there any Indigo2 XL graphics cards out there?
My location is Sweden but I don't mind some shipping cost.


Why you need the XL?

O2 + Linksys NSLU-2 ... works :-)

I have been using the NSLU-2 with my SGI O2 for several days. At least, it works. I use the Sharity-light (I'm still not sure if I really need the full, commercial, Sharity) to access the NSLU-2 drives. There are some issues but it generally works. I think that Linksys did some design flaws here: th...

Just received a Nokia 770 "Internet tablet" the other day. Seems like a cool gadget... I have one, too. It's a very nice *nix machine - the "vi" editor is included by default and one can also install the TeX :D It only lacks an on-board C compiler (but the Python environment can...

Re: Irix audio software

Are there useful audio processing applications for IRIX? I'm thinking of digitizing some old records. I'm not sure if the snd is what you want, but maybe it is. It has Motif and Gtk+ interfaces and it seems to be relatively powerfull. I have compiled this thing on my O2 without issues (but I have t...

What is the software running on this Indy that gives the transparent login box and menu on the right hand side??

What is wrong ?

Why do you start cdplayer from icon catalog ? It doesn't start automatically after CD is inserted?

Maybe you have to wait several (or more) seconds to see what will happen...

I have a R10k/250 and R5k/200 O2s. And the R10k isn't much louder than the R5k one. But both are louder than my Pentium III/1000MHz PC :(
