The collected works of LgnLndstrm


I just recently aquired my first SGI system, an O2:

IRIS 1# hinv
CPU: MIPS R10000 Processor Chip Revision: 3.4
FPU: MIPS R10010 Floating Point Chip Revision: 0.0
1 250 MHZ IP32 Processor
Main memory size: 256 Mbytes
Secondary unified instruction/data cache size: 1 Mbyte on Processor 0
Instruction cache size: 32 Kbytes
Data cache size: 32 Kbytes
FLASH PROM version 4.18
Integral SCSI controller 0: Version ADAPTEC 7880
Disk drive: unit 2 on SCSI controller 0
CDROM: unit 4 on SCSI controller 0
Integral SCSI controller 1: Version ADAPTEC 7880
On-board serial ports: tty1
On-board serial ports: tty2
On-board EPP/ECP parallel port
CRM graphics installed
Integral Ethernet: ec0, version 1
Iris Audio Processor: version A3 revision 0
Video: MVP unit 0 version 1.4
AV: AV1 Card version 1, Camera not connected.
Vice: TRE
1600SW Flat Panel adapter board and display.

As this is my first system I am a complete novice with IRIX. Therefore, I apologize if my questions are silly but I have been doing my best to learn how this system works. One of the many hurdles I have come across is attempting to acquire the nekoware files via rsync.

Here is what happens:

IRIS 1# /usr/nekoware/bin/rsync -az --progress \ /usr/nekoware
building file list ...
rsync: link_stat "/" failed: No such file or directory (2)
0 files to consider

sent 29 bytes received 20 bytes 98.00 bytes/sec
total size is 0 speedup is 0.00
rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at main.c(892) [sender=2.6.8]

I do not understand why it cannot connect when there is no issue with the mirror.

Thank you for any help!

Bluecode and smj, thank you for your responses. After playing around a little the following ended up working:

/usr/nekoware/bin/rsync -az --progress \ /usr/nekoware

The files are currently downloading!

Hopefully this post can help anyone else trying to get nekoware on their system.

On the nekoware page it has "" as the option for rsync; however, this evidently does not work. I ended up using a different mirror as shown above.
