An admitted long shot, but if it works it'd mean Origin 300/350/3k0 users could run a graphics head, much like the MGRAS graphics hack did for 02k users.


Just wanted to ask... would this possibly work for Origin 200 also..?

Excluding the very rare PSItech RAD4C-KM, not PCI graphics, or at least not with IRIX (PCI graphics isn't looking too good with the O300 either - see my edit to the original post).

If I'm not mistaken, you can run a half-height first generation XIO Octane graphics board (an SI or SE) if you have one of the O200 GigaChannel expansion units.

This seems rather interesting, keep at it :)

oh and this "PCI Adapter ID (vendor 0x10a9, device 0x100a) PCI slot 1" on the O4 is the IOC4, dont know what that 0x100c is though...

If you still have your Onyx4 you could help the effort along by capturing the power-on to log-in sequence in a serial terminal (and post a copy in this thread).

10A9:100C is the "ImageSync" board.

Sorry, we sold it back in october, though I have a couple of older things that might be useful from when it was running OpenBSD.

EDIT: unless it stores that for every boot the same way nix does? if so we have images of the hdd's I could dig through
