Silicon Graphics O2 R12K 270Mhz CPU module for O2 and O2+ workstations

Upgrade Your Silicon Graphics O2 System!

You can install this module on both O2 and O2+ Systems easily
the O2/O2+ mobs are compatible across all CPU families although there are different part numbers/revisions.

to install the R12K CPU module you need:
  • R10K/R12K PCI riser (you should have it)
  • R10K/R12K Backplate (you should have it)
  • updated PROM version (you should already have it)
  • the appropriate plastic CPU bracket (included in this auction)

You can update the O2/O2+ with all the CPUs that are available for the computer.
You should check that you have the right PROM version before installing the R12000, otherwise the O2/O2+ will not boot
The last PROM is v4.18 and with it you should be able to install all the processors.
The PROM is automatically upgraded when you install a new version of IRIX.
IRIX 6.5.8 is absolutely perfect fine for the 270Mhz R12000
I had that configuration during quite a lot of time and it worked just fine.

any more question ?

let me understand: does this software require a flex license in order to work ?
if so, how to run it on an IRIX 6.5.22 machine ( my little O2+) ?
hi guys
i am looking for a circuit simulator for IRIX, something like SPICE, is there anything about ?
i have IRIX 6.5.22 on my O2+
so, as the fact this software is very old … how to get a license ?
i mean, is the license related to the mac-address, disk serial number, or such a stuff ?
in other words, if i buy the item form ebay, … what should i do next ?
i am looking for something that could run with IRIX :D

so, let me try Xyce
josehill wrote: but you may need to do some tricks to get it to install on newer systems, mostly because of changes in the FLEXlm license manager between IRIX 5.x and IRIX 6.x, IIRC.


can you tell me more about these tricks ?
i have IRIX 6.5.22 :mrgreen:
you'd prepare yourself for a shock, i was asked for 500 euro for such an items, plus shipping
isn't there any documentation about it ?
the items costs 40 pounds shipped, i mean … it's a bit of money and i want to be sure it will ok for me


anyone else has informations about that ?
for my IP30/Octane2 , i got

i contacted OlmoSystem and they sold them.

200 euro is very expensive for a CPU module , as 150 euro is very expensive for a XIO24_PCI_cartridge , but i needed them as i am a gentoo/mips developer and more specifically i was working about the linux kernel (2.6.17.rc4+hacks) in order to add a PCI_USB_card on the IP30 machine
shipping to europe from USA means … 22% of VAT in order to import the item (to italy, in my case)
so $520 USD is ~ 460 euro, + 22% = ~ 560 euro for a CPU Module X____X
@ Trippynet
which is your Applications target ? i mean what App do you run on your Octane2/2xR14K ?
jan-jaap wrote: And then (insult to injury): import tax on shipping cost


they are just my considerations about the price which i think that it is too expensive
about shipping, i sold out an octane2 2xR10K CPU module, sent to canada from italy, the shipping price was 60 euro
anyone has experience with a word processor for IRIX ?
i do not like OpenOffice, and i need a Word application
guys i do not want OpenOffice, i want Word Perfect, and i like to know about it
thank you
i have put it into my ftp download
i will test soon :mrgreen:
hi
i downloaded the previous file and i confirm: it's corrupted!

now i am downloading from



where i have seen this file

is it a Demo ? it is not clear to me how/where it is limited about.



what about the guy who is selling "WordPerfect For Unix"
it is an original set of CDs for UNIX, IRIX is in this set

i have not understood the license question: should i have a license in order to run WordPerfect on Irix ?
Does it run on 6.5.22 or 6.5.27 ?

On my SGI-box i'd like to have something to self-document my fun

thank you for the alternatives
  • Abiword (in nekoware, i already have it, and i do not like it)
  • Ted (in nekoware, never tried yet, but it is in my todo list )
  • Framemaker (commercial, never seen before)
  • Showcase (it is in my todo list)


Also to document my mathematical stuff i have already bought a copy of Wolfram Mathematica for SGI

Wolfram has released a free copy of Mathematica for the Raspberry/PI platform
josehill wrote: A lot of people just use the graphical NEdit text editor that comes with IRIX for documenting stuff on their systems. It might not be very fancy, but it is very fast and quite capable. You won't get "word processor" features like bold, italics, etc., but it's great for taking notes. As I said, it's included with IRIX, though there is a newer version of it available at http://sourceforge.net/projects/nedit/f ... table/5.5/


i am a gentoo/mips developer and i am used to use { nedit, nano, pico, ne, vi/vim, emacs, hexedit } for things like composing/editing a C source code and - sometimes - also some piece of binary chunks

i have already ported to IRIX a few gentoo's apps, like hexedit and nano, and i am also trying to port geany, which is a bit more complex due to its dependencies with GTK+


if i write that I want to use wordeditor to document my things (things that MUST use a word editors features like notes/bold/italics/underlined/font/size etc etc ) i perfectly know the difference between a text editor and a word editor !
@foetz
have you installed it ?
is it a demo ? if so, which are its limits ?

i am thinking about buying the WordPerfect Box from the guy from ebay
TeamBlackFox wrote: If you're a Gentoo MIPS developer, why not use a Gentoo box with remote X to pull a recent Libreoffice or Apache OpenOffice copy over


i already did it on my x86/linux box, and i have ported gentoo on my Octane2 (which is unsupported experimental machine)
i am running an old kernel 2.6.17, i have a full SMP support but with an ugly big-kernel lock, so … having an SMP 2xR12K cpu module installed performs like having 1.5 CPU instead of 2.

i have recently added the PCI-USB support to my Octane2, pretty able to attach an usb-disk but with a limited throughput of 20Mbyte/sec, this happens due to the XBOW chip, and the XIO-to-PCI, which are not exactly well understood and documented.

also X11 is working ONLY on Impact/SR video board, the V6 is not supported

btw, i have a combo video board, both Impact/SR and V6, so i could simply emerge app-office/abiword
Homepage: http://www.abisource.com/
Description: Fully featured yet light and fast cross platform word processor


in order to have a pretty updated version of abiword on my Octane2, but my conclusion is: why should i do that ? gentoo is not a good idea to achieve workstation purposes on Octane2, so for serious tasks, like desktop's tasks, you'd better use an x86 machine (with ubuntu)

i am still used to toy with gentoo on octane2 to do something development, and this means remote text console

i have bought a mac-mini/intel, i have put gentoo on, and emerged app-office/abiword, it's so pretty easy to export the display under my pretty Apple book/air using X11/Quartz, so i am able to sit on my laptop in order to use abiword which is physically running on my mac-mini/linux

but again … why shouldn't install a native macosx version of open office instead toying on remote machines ? And why should i have to install Abiword on irix experting the display over an ssh tunnel to my laptop ? It was fun when i was a student, now i want to toy different, and i do not want to spend to much time developing or porting things under Irix, that because Irix is simply EOL, that means it's good only for hobby, and for my hobby i like ONLY to have original commercial applications.

to short this story: I prefer to have original and pretty old Unix applications, instead of trying to port modern (open source) applications to an EOL platform. WordPerfect is exactly like that, it was a pretty old Unix application, so i want it, and i want to use it to document my things under Irix.
@josehill
no problem
i have reported a few pretty open source text editors
nano under Irix is my most used one :mrgreen:
i have written "nano under irix is my most used one", it does not mean anything else. To code and design a safeC (aka MISRA C embedded) application i am used to use "geany" + "automake", which is not an editor, it is an IDE (integrated development equipment), and it works on X11, and personally everything else i have tried … vim + "nerd tree" (vi plugin), whatever … is simply not productive.

btw, nano is the default editor you can find in macOSX and gentoo, so why should i learn 8239833253309893243123131 editors ? Nano is fine enough to configure scripts, and here we go on irix.

Personally i also think that you can be a good developer if you design a pretty piece of code, and this imply to be able to use "Understand", or "Stood", plus a pretty deep coverage analysis tool and so on.



btw, i am fine with WP-v6, here it is a screenshot, it is running on SGI/Impact, i have exported the display to quartX11 on macOSX in order to take a snapshot; i have asked a friend of mine to use his machine, i do not have any access to my Octane2 and O2 at the moment, they are physically very far away, 200Km at least, from me

thank you for the link, it's pretty working :D

TeamBlackFox wrote: I just find it a bit funny that you actually like WordPerfect


more fun with Mathematica v5 for Irix :mrgreen:

i am a funny person, for example i have bought an Acorn Risc/PC machine, equipped with a strongArm @200Mhz and a [email protected] guest second cpu board, this machine in such hw configuration is able to run Windows 3.11 inside the x86 card and to handle its interface inside RISC/OS, from the user point of view it looks like ~ "virtualBOX", i mean a box within an other OS, on W311 box i have installed Mathematica v3 , and WordPerfect . They run very nice, it's a pleasure to use them, as it's fun on Irix.

It happens sometimes, for hobby purposes
all funny things :mrgreen:

yeah, i meant " video frame buffer board ", shortly " video board ", referring about how i am using V6 and Impact/pro on linux, but you are right about that, according to SGI terminology , they are graphics boards, unfortunately without any hw acceleration on linux, also the V6 is not able to be used with X11, a lot of hw details are still unknown, but it works fine as text console :lol:

also, they should be little-endian

ummmm i have seen only a few guys working on them in gentoo/mips: i am afraid they are not so followed, but i can be wrong

p.s.
are you a developer ?
i do not have any updated stage3-LE for mips
i had something for RB532 (a complete stage4), but it is very very old
I wonder about repairing

here i am, i am a gentoo/mips guy, and i am used to toy with gentoo on Octane2 (IP30)

linux is pretty dead on IP30, the only working kernel is 2.6.17, everything else is not working, or incomplete
e.g. the SMP is dead, the XIO-PCI is dead, too

the 2.6.17 has SMP, but with bit kernel lock, that means if you have 2 CPU then it looks like having one CPU plus an half instead of two
also there are a lot of issues about handling more than 1.5G byte of ram

surrealdeal wrote: I wanted to see if using only the unaccelerated framebuffer would give me x11 on a defective card that causes segfaults under irix


  • V6 graphics cards are not able to run X11, details are missing, so more hacking activity is required: you can ONLY use it as text console
  • Impact/SR graphics cards are able to run X11, so you can use them for both text console and X11

personally i have put both the graphics cards inside my IP30, but i am not using none of them: i simply prefer to use the machine remotely (too noise machine, and everything works better through an ssh tunnel)


i am experimenting the pci, which is not exactly intel-pci-specification compliant, btw i can plug an usb-disc achieving a throughput of 20Mbyte/sec

armanox wrote: I used to run Gentoo Linux on an Octane at college 2GB RAM


which kernel release ? 2.6.19 is not so pretty here, and i am considering it as "unstable"

also, 2Gbyte of ram is not possible if you have a XIO-PCI, there are a lot of issues about XBOW

armanox wrote: but framebuffer X is really horrible


not so horrible, but it's usable ONLY if you have a light windows manager
in my case i used and hacked x11-wm/enlightenment with a very reduces set of features

actually i am using the machine remotely, through ssh, and serial (kgdb, kernel debugger, MIPS-STUB in kernel space, attached to the serial port)

here is the screenshot from the serial console, it was a bit of time ago, Fri Aug 9, 2013

as you can see the PCI_USB is working, i have attached an USB_DISK . Performances are not so good, i achieved a maximum of 20Mbyte/sec because the XIO24 has a bit of issues opening a windows to the PCI sub module, also … a lot of issues choosing the right PCI_USB chip (OHCI & EHCI) because SGI is not compliant with the PCI standard .



graphics are are not not installed because the kernel is under debug activity

hi guys
i am offering one of the entry level audio 5V boards that came in O2s, unfortunately i do not have the Breakout Cable, but you can easily build one, according to this documentation, and this thread

Breakout Cable

Breakout Cable, DB15 Connector Pinout Assignments

Pin, Assignment
1, COAXIAL DIGITAL_IN GND
2, COAXIAL DIGITAL_IN
3, VID_REF
4, VID_REF GND

the board label is " 030-0950-002 Rev-A ", so from PCI Digital Audio Board Installation Guide it means

Board part number : 030-0950-002
Compatible platforms : O2, Octane, Octane2, Origin200 media-ready servers
Notes : Do not use with Origin200 nonmedia-ready servers, Origin 3000, or Onyx 3000

hi guys
i has hacking my Octane2 (IP30) in order to have xio-pci + pci-usb, in order to plug an usb-harddisk, which was successfully achieved using a NEC uPD72010x chip from a common PCI-usb board (i have payed 9 euro, from a local PC parts reseller)

i am quite fine, even if i am still having issues, and i do not have any really working OHCI (1), btw i have a full working EHCI, that is pretty good for bulk-only driven storage devices


btw, i have seen SGI has an USB PCI card, SGI part number 9210286
NEC chipset - Slotted for 3.3 and 5V PCI applications. SGI equipped Onyx 350 InfiniteReality and InfinitePerformance systems with this card as an attachment point for USB keyboards and mice.

There are some references on TechPubs indicating Orange Micro as the OEM, while "UP205-0525" screened on the PCB returns Adaptec references. It appears in an hinv with a PCI vendor ID of 0x1033 (NEC) PCI device numbers 0x0035(Dual OHCI controllers plus Single EHCI controller) and 0x00e0(USB 2.0 Host Controller)


which seems to be a product pretty compatible with SGI machines. I do not know if Octane2 has ever had it, and if Irix has ever supported that. Any knows and feedback is welcome

thank you


(1) it's working with FTDI-usb-uart cable, everything else seems to have strange behavior, i still have to check and understand what is wrong
we do not have any sources about the Irix kernel, so .. personally i am not able to write a driver for the USB
also, i am still having troubles about these kind of experimental hacks, linux is not exactly working as expected, for example adding the XIO-PCI and then attaching the PCI-USB cause unexpected issues if you have more than 1.5Gbyte of ram

i had 2Gbyte installed, and i needed to remove a few of them in order to have the usb working, also other issues with the V6 and Impact/Pro, so … it's not as easy as expected with linux, and finally … do not expect to have a recent kernel working, everything above 2.6.17 is simply dead/broken and needs a lot of work to be fixed
a guy was interested, but he has changed his idea because he was thinking the cable is included
so i write it again: sorry, the Breakout Cable is not included, i do not really have it
but i think you can make it by yourself :mrgreen:

@ recondas
thank you for your information, i am learning a lot of things :mrgreen:

i wish i had enough money to buy an SMP module, [email protected], for my IP30. It should help me a lot because having a speedup of 200Mhz against my actual 400Mhz (R12K) module, means to complete stage4 in half the actual cooking time i have to take now

also Mathematica for IRIX enjoy the R14K, while linux is considering all the advanced features introduced in the R14K ISA (instruction set architecture) more ilke the entry level R10K. From the linux point of view it looks like … an R10K @ 600Mhz :mrgreen:


unfortunately it is too expensive for me: i was asked for 500/600 euro for such an SMP CPU module
