I have some. Supportfolio has been offline for some time for IRIX users. Others here can probably help too. What patch do you want?

All would be great, but if you have:

7233
7209
7207
7174
7149

That would be great!

If I have 6.5.19 CDs - what patches would I need to take it to 6.5.30?

Thanks!

Patches mostly fix certain bugs and problems in individual subsystems, but only rarely do they upgrade subsystems. For upgrading the IRIX OS there are no patches, only overlays to a later (or earlier) version.

For 6.5.30 you need '6.5.30 installation tools and overlays 1 of 3' and '6.5.30 overlays 2 of 3' and 6.5.30 overlays 3 of 3'
Your system must of course be supported in IRIX 6.5.30. Rule of thumb, all machines capable of supporting R12000 CPU and higher are supported in IRIX 6.5.30. This e.g. includes the O2, but not the Indigo2 or Onyx1 or Challenge systems

Received most of the 6.5.22 and 6.5.30 updates from a kind person. I will upload them to archive.org in the near future.

Keep in mind that for IRIX installation older than 6.5.20 you need to install Patch 5086 before you perform a live upgrade of the system. This patch upgrades inst/swmgr to deal with some package changes since the 6.5.20 release.
