I see that when the O300 node is plugged in the L1 is ready and if I push the power button, the system comes to life showing that it is powered up. What are the port settings (baud, parity, stop bits etc.) and I assume a standard null modem cable is necessary.

The L3 software includes an L2 emulator (as well as some very nice diagnostic tools). The installation is RPM based, so if you use a different flavor of linux you'll have to adapt and overcome.ThaddeusW wrote:One thing that I have been trying to find out today is an illustration I saw on techpubs of an SGI 230 Intel workstation hooked to an SGI Origin (3xx or 3xxx) USB port. That got me thinking, since the L2 was nothing more than an embedded Linux system that talked to the L1's via USB, was there such a thing a a software L2? I just got an SGI 1100 off ebay for 29 bucks, bad motherboard But I have a board that will fit. If that could act as an L2 I would rather go that route then have to buy power bricks or hack power supplies together. I know there was an L3 but as far as I know it was just a Linux work station setup to manage the SGI system.

I had a tutorial for setting up the L3 software in a VM a la DINA on my to-do list, as well as making a VM available. Would still like to do it (have many notes from recondas and my successful first two passes) but there's now a girlfriend between me and the round tuits... but I do still hope to get back to it over this Spring.recondas wrote:The biggest drawback is the L3 package is several years old, and ...
