The background info is in place, but I haven't added in my setup and usage steps yet. I've got some Octanes I need to configure and install, so I intend to validate my notes from November and capture some screenshots along the way. Should make for a good guide.


That is a good idea smj, thank you for your work so far, great info!

Good luck with Octane installs. Without me trying to offend the Install goods - it should probably be a walk in the park.
The machines and IRIX I got problems with during my testing was the older ones like Indigo with IRIX 5.3
IRIX 6.5 was tested on Indy, Indigo2 and O2 so I don't expect any problems for your Octane.

Thanks - 6.5.19 and the .22 overlays were no problem on the Origin 300 with DINA, which is how I got my notes from November. I used that same VM to install 6.5.30 on a Fuel, so I don't expect any problems with the Octanes. As of last night I've run through all the setup steps and just need to load the IRIX CD contents.

Trying to get my Origin 300 up and running. Got DINA all configured with all the cds, I can see it on my network through Samba too.

However no matter what I try (resetenv, crossover cable, Origin 300 + Linux box on their own switch) all I get is:

Unable to execute bootp()192.168.2.100:/irix/6.5/1/dist/sa(sash64): could not connect to server
Cannot load bootp()192.168.2.100:/irix/6.5/1/dist/sa(sash64) -- could not connect to server.

Any ideas?

Thinking about it some more, my Origin 300 has a Fiber Channel card in it, would that affect things or not?

No. FibreChannel not supported in PROM for booting options, can not install from or onto FC. I have FC cards in my o300s and installed IRIX successfuly.

Check the ipaddress of the o300. These error messages look like network problems to me.
From memory at the ">>" prompt type "printenv", in any case type "help" and track down network options.

I had to put in the server address into the prom options when I used it previously, it's posted earlier in the thread.

I would recomend starting up another SGI and verify that it can reach DINA and read the NFS directories etc.

The last error message informs you that you have two or more computers having the same IP number.
One of the computers have the 18:87... MAC adress.

Tried a different switch with only my Linux box and the Origin 300, now I'm getting:

Code: Select all

dks0d1s0: volume header not valid
swap partition (0) is not a valid swap area.


Is there way to wipe the drive from prom? I'm guessing it doesn't like the non-irix partitions?
