they sent me a agp pro/50 "3D Wildcat 4 7120" darn... this wont work in a sunblade.
I see it will work in a "professional" pc motherboard like a tyan
and it has XP drivers and normally runs between 2K and 3 K in price. Guess not bad for a 60.00 win... any suggestions as to motherboard I should get to run it??




Well you can always look into a dual AMD Opteron based Tyan board.
Say the S2885 http://www.tyan.com/archive/products/ht ... erk8w.html

Thanx :)
I really have a great fun with this machine. My only complain about it for now is that once the fastfan mode is triggered (usually after a little hour), it becomes difficult to work with it for a long time.
After I saw neko's hint , I tried to remove the divo, but it still goes to fastfan after an hour or so, no difference here.
Maybe it's time to attempt a (huge) fan mod :lol:




Simple. Buy a floor-standing air-conditioner. De-humidify the air and keep it a constant 68 Fahrenheit. You other workstations will
thank you for the relatively small cooling investment ;)

I wonder if this can be compiled to work on some high-end Irix machines....

Haven't looked at the source yet, but worth investigating. Could be fun if it works :P

My internal SCSI CDROM bit the dust a while ago... using an external Plextor DVD-DL on my Octane and Onyx2...
So the system controller and a spare IO6G would be nice to have. Drop me a pm ;)

I might purchase an Origin 2100 or something along those lines.. fit it with an IO6G and a EMXI MGRAS video board I have laying about.

Actually I've got a utility that can mount XFS on OSX. Sort of like smb, just enter your machine IP, and the mount point

PM me for details... I'll post it here later

Right a solution to enabling full OpenGL acceleration under Solaris 10u5 and up.
I've been more than agitated with the lack of answers from sun.com, or locally Sun support.
Then an idea hit me. Why not download the original driver pack located here:
http://www.sun.com/download/index.jsp?cat=Hardware%20Drivers&tab=3
copy to a location on my hard drive and uncompress
and then forcefully install the packages located under the Solaris 9 folder?
I did exactly that, however before we go any further we need to create the following:
Navigate to /var/tmp/ , and create the following file: 'admin' using your favorite text editor ie vi
The file contains the following;

Code:
mail=
conflict=nocheck
action=nocheck
partial=nocheck
instance=overwrite
idepend=nocheck
rdepend=nocheck
space=check


Then cd to the location where you copied the packages to: and run
Code:
# pkgadd -a /var/tmp/admin -d `pwd`

Next ensure than you have a copy of Xservers in /etc/dt/config/
(BTW ensure than you have the directory config under /etc/dt/)
if not then:

Code:
# cp /usr/dt/config/Xservers /etc/dt/config
# cd/etc/dt/config
# vi Xservers


Again in this example I'm using Vi, you can use any text editor
( Here's a tutorial for noobs http://www.linode.com/wiki/index.php/Vim_Tutorial )
Next we'll add the following entry to the Xservers file and comment out the previous line

Code:
-snip-
# This release of Solaris is configured to run the program /usr/X11/bin/Xserver
# to start the X server using configuration options found in the SMF repository
# See the Xserver(1) manual page for more information.


#  :0   Local [email protected] root /usr/X11/bin/Xserver :0 -nobanner
:0   Local [email protected] root /usr/openwin/bin/Xsun -dev /dev/fbs/gfb0 defdepth 24


Then simply reboot.

Fire up a terminal window:
use fbconfig -res /? to determine what you can display and then
set a suitable resolution of your choice, however do be careful regarding refresh rates. (ie fbconfig -res 1280x1024x85)

Regards


Ryan

Updating OpenGL adds even more raw performance. It runs really really well.
It sometimes pays to experiment.

Personally I think Mentalray will yield far superior results than software, however
memory/system resource management is crucial in order to prevent Maya from crashing on you.

The idea of a new version for the IRIX platform is pretty darn exciting. Even if it is buggy on VPro graphics subsystems, there is a remote possibility that it might
work on Infinite reality etc... Worth a try if you ask me. ^^

Should be playable on an Onyx2/Tezro lol.. not sure regarding the source though..
However there was a test version compiled on a SPARC box running Sol 10uxx

Y'know Installing Ubuntu Linux/Red hat on this should be cool. Heh but still a very very useful and capable workstation. I wonder if you can upgrade the CPUs on this thing using standard options available on the market?

My second Onyx2 was a freebie as well, but was kind of rusty and required many hours of love&cleaning.
As for your refresh rate issue.. I believe you can simply set that directly from the command line via a terminal to something sensible.
No need to reinstall IRIX, if no root password has been set on the machine.. Please just check the man pages on ircombine
and what resolution combinations you have installed.

Regards

-smirks- Ah it found you :P Yeah the Dallas clock chip is a real nightmare. I can't understand why the heck they didn't simply put a coin battery holder on the board...
Seriously -.- Anyhow I believe this has been discussed in some detail and there are quite a few examples of individuals who were 'brave' enough to resort to hack and slash butchery...

The textport works while booting IRIX; I shot a quick video of the boot sequence for you:

Probably only slightly more interesting than watching paint dry for most, but oh well ;)



I want one! -SOBS, throwing rocks at you!- :P Seriously I'm searching for one in South Africa :P

When i fired up my half-Crimson for the first time, the vacuum cleaner sound made a lasting impression on me. Like if you were dealing with something very powerful.




How noisy is it in comparison to a fully loaded Onyx2 desk-side?>

Weeeell Given my location it does get pretty hot during the summer months, 104F sometimes. Very uncomfortable.
Thankfully these beasts are in an air-conditioned study... However you're right... fast fan mode isn't something to poke fun at.
They really do sound like they're about to take off :P

Awesome!!
Will give it a spin on my Onyx 2 IR3 tonight. This is quite an achievement. A big thank you to all for making this port possible.

Welp, I took apart the graphics cards and got at the connections with my can of contact cleaner (which, incidentally, is how I got the machine to begin working properly originally); however, while I had them apart, I noticed something disconcerting - the chips on the underside of the boards, the ones with the little heat-sink-looking things attached to them, are not attached to their pads, or at least many of them are not. They are hanging on barely by perhaps another set of tenuously-connected pins towards the middle.

I shall attempt to solder these down later (the cleaning did not fix the problem); I personally do not have a good soldering station (or very steady hands for that matter ^^; ), but a housemate who is not presently in does. Report to follow.




Yikes! I've rarely seen components pull loose from PCBs. A bit of a concern, makes you wonder how well the machine was maintained.


Regards


Ryan

Hi there, I'm trying to up the internal storage of my old 7100/80 , however I can't seem to find any software that
will allow me to clone the SCSI hard drive , to another larger drive. Any suggestions?

Kind Regards


Ryan
