Apparently I never posted a hinv of my Octane (which I've had for over a year), so here it goes:

The Archive tape drive is an SGI original DDS-2 drive I stumbled upon on eBay which seems to have the audio-over-SCSI firmware. The drive works flawlessly, too. I've used it for a full backup (and restore!) successfully.

I bought that HP DVD-ROM based on the suggestion in another forum thread and stuck it in a Sun 611 case. Works great, too. Thanks to whoever suggested those HP DVD readers!

The machine also has an IBM-branded Spaceball input device hanging off a serial port but that doesn't show up in the hinv. (Between that and the aforementioned HP drive in a Sun case all running off of an SGI computer I sure do seem to be mixing and matching my Unix vendors!)

Alas, all is not well with the machine. Around the time I got the machine, I posted in another thread about some networking problems. I've since added a PCI cage and Gigabit NIC so it's at least on the network now. But it still has some serious gremlins. I think SAQ hit the nail on the head in that other thread when he suggested looking at the frontplane. In addition to no on-board network connectivity, I get XIO errors whenever I run the system fully configured with both SE cards and the PVO installed. Either SE card alone is rock solid stable. Both SEs together, or any one SE + the PVO, or both SEs + PVO are all unstable configurations. Sometimes the screen will just go black. If the screen stays functional I get messages about "Heart: DMA Memory Address Error" to go with my lock-up.

So for the most part, I run it headless and connect via SSH. Which is a shame considering the Octanes were built for graphics. Someday I'll replace the frontplane. But I keep spending my computer budget on other toys instead....

About the Spaceball, mine doesn't show up in hinv either. There must be a generic driver for it because I see it listed in the confidence tests but I use the 3DConnexion driver version 4.64 That may be here on nekochan's ftp. If not, it's not hard to find.

The spaceball works great in the applications I have that use it. For general use it does nothing. The application has to be written to accept Spacey input.
