Hi I recently reformatted my octane it has essi graphics with the personal video option, I installed the 6.5 base with 6.5.24 overlays.I read somewhere in here that there was an unbundled bunch of graphics tools on overlay cd 3 but I cannot find it. I think that what I need are the evo drivers. My problem is that when I go to open the video panel from media tools, I get this error
This machine has no video daemon.The Video Panel cannot operate. I enabled videod in sh but that didnt work either If anyone knows of this can you please help.Thanks

The drivers you need for the PVO are here:

It's in German, but you get the idea.

I don't have 6.5.24 handy, but in 6.5.22, the unbundled directory is on CD 2 under /dist/unbundled <there is an evo_6522m: OCTANE Personal Video Execution Environment, 6.5.22. file in there

If you've got a fairly standard install, try loading file /var/www/htdocs/WhatsNew/yourSystem.html into your browser. If it's installed, you should find a listing of the contents of the Irix CDs. <if you've got a vanilla enough install to have a Welcome_to_SGI icon on your desktop, it'll take you to the same place>.

EDIT: Oh well, looks like I type too slow :roll:

Didn't know if it was in the unbundled directory or not, but your right, should have mentioned that also. :)

I downloaded the files on from that archive link but most files are truncated at 1MB and the cosmo65.tar was not available at all.

Does anyone have the full files which should be at that link?

Hi, I don't know if DrSatan could get any enjoyed with these drivers, i hope so, then i have the same problem from one year ago !!! "this machine has no video deamon, panel cannot operate..etc etc..."

"Please be sweet about my poor English spoken...sorry"

DrSatan must be more lucky because personnal video is an XIO board, perhaps it's may fonction properly with DIVO soft in "unbundled software"

My trouble makes me more unsatisfied, still trying to drive a DM6 SD card. One on an Octane, and one other on a FueL, then i get even the same message, no video deamon etc etc...

Are you well seat down? because the must of this story, is that these SGI units are on fullcare SGI contract, and i am so long waitting the gentleman who's could help me driving right these ggrgrhjgkgggmunphhh !!!!! of DM6 SD card.

On the other hand, during this year i was not calling SGI every 5 minutes, i am first working with G5 mac, that's all about cost! (bebe!, ...about you! ...and me..;;) forgiveness I crack...... however, I accumulate some correspondences.

More seriously, does any body have a good idee? i wonder whether, to simplify...

Is there a person on the ground which made function a DM6 card? because I start to doubt.

I will be very enjoyed to find a solution, because i'm in love in SGI using for fun.

IMPORTANT: I do not want to criticize SGI, which is in spite of my problems the best computer firm with which I worked. Simply and unfortunately for me, it seems that the firm which manufactures this dm6 envisaged in all, only one and a single document...Called "SDStationOEM"... thus work with that!!! , then i would be more satisfy to find more documents from SGI about it, nobody is perfect, that is life.

If you have a similar error message, then maybe the problem is the same: no drivers installed?

DM6 drivers can be downloaded from SGI:

Have you tried the confidence tests ? Good place to start, I think.

Hey, I'm looking for an SGI Fuel or Tezro with DM6 video card. Anyone moved on and want to sell theirs, or just the DM6 card? (Kshuff, if you still haven't gotten yours to work?) thanks
