At the moment, all I can do is get the PROM-level hinv info. This machine was going to be my IRIX 4.0.5 playground, but I discovered that my 4.0.5 CD is damaged. So the machine is still waiting for an operating system. I'm thinking about NetBSD instead. Certainly not IRIX 6.5 since my other SGIs are already running that much faster than this little guy could!
Code: Select all
Processor: R4000 50 Mhz, with FPU
Primary I-cache size: 8 Kbytes
Primary D-cache size: 8 Kbytes
Secondary cache size: 1024 Kbytes
Memory size: 96 Mbytes
SCSI Disk: scsi(0)disk(1)
SCSI Tape: scsi(0)tape(2)
The tape is an original SGI DDS/DAT drive, but other than that there's nothing special about this Indigo. I replaced the TOD clock battery a little over a year ago, so no troubles on that front.
I might consider selling/trading this system for an Indigo R3000 Elan instead. I don't have an R3K system of any sort and would like one so that I can compare it to the faster machines. Especially since my Indigo2 has a 250MHz R4400 and that's a much faster specimen from the R4K family. And I just have this weird fascination with older/slower hardware.
