WTB/T: Indigo2 R8K IP26

Unread postby nekonoko » Sat May 21, 2011 3:51 pm

Curious if anyone has an R8K Power Indigo2 they want to get rid of. I have some SGI goodies in storage I can offer in possible trade as well.

Thanks much!

I have an IP26 and a defective CPU - complains about something with the cache, if I'm not mistaken. If you want to pay for shipping from Germany, it's yours, but I think that's going to be prohibitively expensive. I don't have any Indigo^2s left to test.

I have an extra (dead) CPU too. I think I'll put it on the wall in my new computer room as it's a pretty impressive piece of tech.

Your best bet is to find one locally and avoid shipping. IP26 is quite fragile.
Now this is a deep dark secret, so everybody keep it quiet :)
It turns out that when reset, the WD33C93 defaults to a SCSI ID of 0, and it was simpler to leave it that way... -- Dave Olson, in comp.sys.sgi

I don't mind shipping from overseas, but yeah - would be nice to have one that works :)
