You can use them yes, you will need to install the patch located on the CD 1 image to do it.

Mods: I dont suggest to delete this. SGI offered 6.5.22m for free for the better part of a decade.
:O3x02L: R16000 700MHz 8GB RAM kanna
:Octane: R12000 300MHz SI 896MB RAM yuuka
:Octane2: R12000A 400MHz V6 2.5GB RAM
:Tezro: Quad R16000 700MHz V12 8GB RAM murasaki
:Indy: (Acclaim) R4600 133MHz XL Graphics 32MB RAM

I am probably posting from yangxiaolong, HP Z230 with Xeon E3-1230v3, 16GB RAM, GeForce 750ti, and running NetBSD and Windows 8.1 Embedded.

OP edited to comply with forum rules.

docz, please don't link to that site in the future.

RF, your suggestion has been noted, alas SGI owned IRIX. The site in question does not. With IRIX abandonware these are murky waters. You are, of course, welcome to be explicit about these kind of sources on irix.pw.

Thanks for your understanding. Locking thread but leaving in place. I take it docz's question has been answered, too.

the world. And that other computers and operating systems
will do with brute force what the Amiga did years before with
grace, elegance and style.
