Welcome kchris.

I realize this is a long thread, but I'm pretty sure there's a link somewhere in here to the NekoWiki page Using DINA For Network Installation Of IRIX. I think most of what's been discussed here is covered. There's even a link to a thread about running DINA under Hyper-V.

DINA's a godsend but it's quirky, even persnickety. It gets easily confused about what address it has assigned to a machine, sometimes requiring the user to edit some files before you can netboot again. I suspect that when I rebuild the NanoBSD build environment for my Soekris box, it'll be a reasonably quick job to update/migrate DINA onto a current release and clean up that sort of thing. No idea when I'll collect enough round tuits, though...

Is DINA still available ?
Can't seem to find it anywhere.

Thanks

Speaking of netbooting, has anyone managed to get an Altix 350 to netboot ? Seems like it should be possible but ... ?

You can't get to it at Harry's main site? I was just able to bring it up.

I had to pull my server from one colo, haven't gotten it to the new one yet, and apparently missed a spot in swapping DNS over. Should be cleared up for the mirror at shiftleft.com as soon as any bogus entries are removed from your local DNS cache.

Ah, I'd just assumed the Swedish was telling me the file had disappeared long ago.
After some Google Translating, I have now logged in and downloaded it!

The world needs more MIPS Irix up to date software/code maintainers.
Everything seems to have ground to a halt around 2006-8.

Thanks

OK, my version of DINA seems to be hard coded to look for updates from www.mechanics.citg.tudelft.nl
which has been defunct since 2008.
I tried editing its config file and others and it's still pointing there.
any clues as to how to make it stop defaulting there ?

Error message:

WARN: Cannot download version information from
http://nekoware.dustytech.net/current/nekosync-history

Downloading and parsing index file, please wait...
FATAL: Specified directory http://www.mechanics.citg.tudelft.nl/~e ... re/current
is empty or network disconnected.

Grepped for tudelft from root - nothing.
Where is this index file coming from ??
Any clues on DINA configuration ?

Thanks

There's activity if you look over in the SGI: Development forum ( viewforum.php?f=15 )

Granted it could always use more - thanks for volunteering! :mrgreen: Seriously, you're welcome to help out. Best if you take a look at the wiki page on packaging software for nekoware over here. You'll probably have questions - don't be shy but use SGI: Development.

Hi All.
I will not renew my domain harrydebug.com when it's up for renewal in a month.

This means the site http://dina.harrydebug.com/ will go permanently offline after the 24th of May 2014.
Some very nice people from this forum have mirrored the page and DINA appliance as reflected in this thread and the wiki pages so you should be good anyway.
But I thought I give you a heads up should you want to download a copy yourself.

Cheers!
//Harry

Good to hear from you, Harry! Hope life is treating you well.

Thanks for the warning about your site; I've added a note to the wiki page and will update later as needed.

Anyone ever see this error with IRIX 5.3 and an Indigo R3k? It looks like it is communicating with the DINA VM ok since it's getting an IP Address, but in looking through the IRIX 5.3 Netinstall docs I couldn't find anything relating to error 126.

Tried again last night, this time going from the command monitor to do the fx part.

Thankfully it started going with the boot -f bootp()192.168.1.100:/irix/5.3/1/stand/fx.IP12 --x command and showed some process (233136), but then would come back "unable to read all of..."

I tried the obvious swapping of CAT5e cables, no change. The only thing I can think of it's my AUI -> RJ45 dongle (hadn't tested it previously), so I purchased a new one (really wish I had a Weird Stuff near by for these types of things).
