Ha ha, I knew there would be a problem encountered... I don't have room on the drives to create a .tar of that directory. I've managed to make it a 7GB directory (don't ask, I just installed a whole load of stuff that'll probably never get used...) and rather than do the obvious and delete the direc...

Hey, that sounds great, I shall try it shortly. I agree with what you're saying about avoiding OS dependent GUI tools though. I use Solaris10 on a Sun Blade1000 which runs FC-AL HDDs rather than SCA discs, and Solaris wants you to do so much by Sun's own GUI tools these days. I was very pleased to s...

HDD Full, What to do?

Hey guys So, I've just done a fresh install onto a 9GB drive on my Octane2, and like a fool kept installing everything onto that drive, ignoring the other 9GB and 4GB disks in the same machine. They're not mounted anywhere at the moment and now I'm wondering if it's possible to move some data from t...

Oh crap, I forgot; no card cages on either. I did try to get one from a UK seller who didn't seem to realise what he had the other month. He had a completely messed up unit that didn't have a PSU and had no skins. I asked if he'd pull the card cage and just send me that but he kept going on about se...

The Octane2 is a 360MHz machine with 1GB RAM and V6. The Octane is a 300MHz with 1GB and ESI if I remember correctly. They've both been powered off for over a year, the only one I've been using is my 400MHz Octane2 that has 2GB RAM. The Octane has the newer style skins as well as Octane2 class XBow,...

Oh no, not at all, he was incredibly patient while I tried to sort it all out. Would've been nicer if he'd just accepted a PayPal transfer mind you. Maybe he does now?

Damn, I can't get it working! I installed all the dependencies and it installed fine via SWMGR but when I double click on the icon nothing happens. When I try to run it via a console it does this: IRIS 1# cd /usr/nekoware/bin IRIS 2# ./firefox moz_run_program[36]: 11790 Trace/BPT Trap(coredump) This...

and me, I've bought Octane parts from him in the past and he's been great, apart from me having to do an IBAN transfer from the UK to pay for it :S Grrr!

What gives: No Octane2 on eBay UK

I've finally gotten around to sorting out the 'spare' Octanes I have here (1x 360MHz Octane2 and 1x 300MHz Octane) so that I can sell them. The Mrs wanted to know how much I think I can get for them, and rather than blurt out an arbitrary number that she'll become fixed on I thought I'd actually loo...

If you want to bring some of those bigger HDDs with you over to the UK I'll come and get the off you some time? I'm not going to make you an offer mind you cos I don't know what they're worth. If you wanna tell me how much you'd want for them then I'll see if I can spare the cash

Firefox 2.0 for IRIX?

Is anyone compiling Firefox 2.0 for us? I wouldn't know where to start! What I do know however is that it's really nice on the PC. I love the inline spell check when I'm writing in here, and thank god I can add words to it, I hate how that doesn't work with GMail... Hey, I won't have to use GMail's ...

Oh no, I'm not thinking of using the MONITOR, it's a Sync-On-Green only job that will only work on my SGIs, but I'm wondering about the cable, it has some missing pins so I wonder if they happen to be suitable to work one of the other SGI monitors with a Sun machine. I've never used my Blade1000 pro...

I have a cable somewhere that came with one of my SGI monitors, I forget the model, you know, the 20" one with the remote control. Anyway, the cable has a HD15 at one end with a few missing pins, I'm gonna see if I can find that one out and try it out. Remember that I'm trying to get Sun machin...
