Latest PROM/SAL version supporting AGP on Prism/Prism DS

Unread postby xiri » Sat Jun 27, 2015 10:30 am

Hi,
does anybody know which is the latest PROM/SAL version that is working with SLES 9/PP4 and supporting AGP of the SGI Prism/Prism DS ?
Mine came with 4.33 installed and I know 4.65 is also confirmed working fine.
I do have 5.10 as a file and the readme included mentions that Prism/Prism DS is also supported, but since it's the AGP support that makes these machines different to the Altix350, it makes no sense to flash the Prism to 5.10 and convert it to a Altix compute module :-)

In thread viewtopic.php?t=1672565 the SAL 5.10 was discussed and I found this:

It should be mentioned that it therefore cannot boot that older kernels anymore (e.g. the one which is shipped with the original SLES9 release)
So you have to choose what you want..


Is there a command to save/backup the current SAL ? I also have 4.07, but I'd rather have 4.33 in case 5.10 is not supporting the AGP-ports on SLES9.

Maybe the owner of an Altix-system knows how to backup/save the currently installed and running SAL?
