O2 R12k 400 Mhz 1Gb 72Gb HDD (Updated: 12/02/2012)

Hello!

I introduced myself some days ago, but I was asking for help at the same time. I guess it is not the best way of doing things, so, here I am to introduce myself in a proper way :). My name is Alberto and I was born in Spain but, nowadays, I am living in London. Although I have been always messing with 3D applications and computers, I am biologist. When I was in Germany I worked for the European Molecular Biology Institute and, thanks to this, I received an O2 for free. They were ready to trash it, but I could save the girl in the last moment. The O2 was used for protein visualization in the past, but it had been stored in a dusty wardrobe for years because the lab decided to replace it with a PC. There were other SGIs but, unfortunately, I think they were thrown away to the garbage container. With the SGI I also received a CrystalEyes system in mint condition, a Dial Box, all the cables, a mouse and an original keyboard. Having the computer made me extremely happy because I had been dreaming with the O2 since 1998, when I first saw it in a magazine. At that moment, I had a crappy PC to run 3D Studio 4.

Since I received it, I have upgraded the computer with the following things:

400 Mhz CPU (it was 270)
1 Gb RAM (it had 640 mb)
72 Gb 15000 rpm Seagate HDD (it was 4 Gb)
Audio/Video module + webcam (it only had an audio module)
Internal Toshiba SD-M1401 DVD-ROM (it had a CD-ROM x4)
External Toshiba SD-M1711 DVD-ROM
Octane speakers (it came with no speakers)
Original SGI microphone
Lock bar
SCSI PCI card
PSU Noctua fan

And here is the inventory at present:

I have the O2 connected to my PC via FTP, so, I can easily exchange files between computers.

I would really like to thank you all for this great community. Without Nekochan, it would have been impossible to fix and configure my O2.

You can still contribute to nekoware in a number of very important ways. Not the least, (beta) testing and documenting (on the wiki).

Thank you very much Indy. I think I will upgrade the computer soon, because I have found an O2 AV1 Analog Video I/O plus a "ZEYE" webcam that were not trashed :).

Just a small update!.

I have performed those mods to the computer :D .

- Installation of an internal DVD-ROM unit (Toshiba SD-M1401).
- Substitution of the standard PSU fan for an 80 mm Noctua.
- Substitution of the standard audio module for an AV1 interface plus a “ZEYE” cam.

Wonderful pictures! I've got a couple of O2s which I haven't really done much work on yet. A 200Mhz R5K and a 195Mhz R10K.

You've configured your desktop to look real spiffy... if you don't mind, I have a few questions:

1) Where did you find that nice sgi background? It's really cool. I've had a lot of trouble getting image backgrounds to show up in IRIX without dithering or other weirdness with colours. How did you get it to show up? Did you edit the bg config or did you use a tool?

2) Can't quite tell, but it seems you have updated, nicer looking app icons than what I got with a stock 6.5.30 install. Did you install new icons? If yes, would love to know where you got the set from.

3) What is your FF browsing experience like? Do you have JS turned off?

4) I see a repaint issue on my Octane and Indigo shown in this video: http://tinypic.com/r/6501sx/7. Whenever I move my windows on top of icons and then move them away to expose the icons again, there's this desktop repaint which happens that bugs the heck out of me. Also, every time I move windows the background area that was previously covered flashes for a fraction of a second with a weird colour and then goes back to being normal. Does this happen with you on your O2?

IRIX does not have a truecolor root window by default, adding -depth 24 -class TrueColor to your /usr/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers file should help.

Thanks for that info. I've tried it. But the image still doesn't appear to be "true colour". The funny thing is that it shows up in xv looking a lot nicer than when it is rendered as a background.

Hello! :)

1) I made the background with Photoshop in my PC :D. I used a free blue abstract background as a template and I added some lights and shadows to it. Then, I took a black and white SGI logo and I put it into the image adding the glow effect. If you like it, I can upload the background, as well as some other backgrounds I made that are similar to this one. To display the background I just followed this Nekochan tuto: http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/index.php/Use_Custom_Background_on_Irix

2) Nope, I did not install new icons. They are the default ones.

3) FF in my O2 is sloooow. I mean, you can use it for normal web browsing, but you have to be a bit patient. I still have to configure it properly, but it seems that it will not improve a lot. It is the same for all the 02 and low-end MIPS machines.

4) No... I do not have the repaint problem on my O2. In fact, I am a bit surprised because it really moves all the application windows really really fast :).

Then, I took a black and white SGI logo and I put it into the image adding the glow effect. If you like it, I can upload the background, as well as some other backgrounds I made that are similar to this one. To display the background I just followed this Nekochan tuto: http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/index.php/Use_Custom_Background_on_Irix

2) Nope, I did not install new icons. They are the default ones.

3) FF in my O2 is sloooow. I mean, you can use it for normal web browsing, but you have to be a bit patient. I still have to configure it properly, but it seems that it will not improve a lot. It is the same for all the 02 and low-end MIPS machines.

4) No... I do not have the repaint problem on my O2. In fact, I am a bit surprised because it really moves all the application windows really really fast :).


Thanks! Yeah, if you wouldn't mind sharing that wonderful background, I would appreciate it! And I'm sure so would other nekochan'ers.

Bummer re browsing, but that's kind of what I expected since FF is pretty slow on my Octane too.

Once I get back home I'll try to sort out the mysterious Octane repaint issue. It's been bugging the crap out of me.

And if I haven't said it before, your machine looks beautiful. Good job on the setup! Cheers!
