Mine has some issues there (it works in PROM, but then it's frozen from the time IRIX load until the X11 login shows up). Think I'll load a different IRIX on it once to force a flash.
Code: Select all
This patch contains fixes for the following bugs in IRIX
o On IRIX 6.2, Crimson Reality Engine was shipped with a
version of graphics prom microcode that didn't work,
this patch fixes the problem.
