Instaling Irix 6.5

Unread postby semi-fly » Fri Aug 22, 2003 7:09 am

Having just re-loaded 6.5.17m on my Octane, I must say it's pretty damm easy...


Getting all the services / freeware etc. installed / configured can take a while, but it's still pretty simple. :)

Wait till you install an update, switch from m to f or vice versa or try to get hardware from the /unbundled directory working...

Well, I never said anything about switching install streams or working with unbundled hardware, I was primary talking about the default 6.5 install on a standard R10K Octane. :)


update: I can't say I've had any problems updating 6.5 with my limited experince either; load swmgr, browse to the directory with the overlays, select 'recommended upgrades', click on install, get cold drink and comeback later. :wink:
