The only differencd between the two is like 10 or 12 transistors and a differently named operation command that sounds uber complex (eg, MMX technology and 3D now)

I fully withdraw my comment and post and take all blame for my bad, half-awake statement. :oops:

I must of misunderstood what was going on in this thread and now I look like an idiot.

If the indigo is cheap I might go for it.
The system is light so shipping should be $25-$30

After finally realizing that it was possible to run limewire off ubuntu I set out to download it and the required version of java. After about an hour of work (after about another hour of downloading from the extremely slow server which holds ubuntu's software) I finally got stumped on this error when I tried to use Package installer:
Code:
Error: Depency not satisfiable: libc6


I looked over it all and to my luck the dependancy tree is the most mysterious linux component when it comes to my little linux-newb mind. What's the missing factor and what can be done to fix it?

There won't be a newer release of ubuntu for a few months and I really don't know if my system would handle it.

As for seing what version of libc6 is needed for limewire, I can't find the requirements anywhere.

...to the locations for edgy packages and then run update manager, I will upgrade the system to edgy?

I have seen them around but nothing that truly looks like it deserves to be called a simulator.
What I am talking about is a PWR (or equivalent) nuclear reactor simulator. the school has one for some reason in the science lab and it's just too damn cool to stop playing. I keep hearing of graphical open-source/freeware reactor simulators for linux (and hopefully something that can be worked for irix) but so far I have found nothing. Does anyone else know what I am talking about and where this software is available?
Remember, I am only looking for the stuff that is okay to freely distribute.

I remember Karin. It was a good show until EATV stopped streaming it.
I then moved on to Pita ten and Zegapain.

I have seen a few episodes of BPS and it reminds me of some of the members on this site that are pounding away on their keyboards trying to do something cool with some beast of a computer sitting in their living room.

Hmmmm...
Besides viewing two Naruto movies the only real significant movie I have seen was Akira and it was um.....interesting.
do Spirited away (sub version) and howl's moving castle (another sub) qualify? They were pretty good.

My futile bid for a VFX1 VR headset was the winning bid in the end and in two weeks it should arrive at my door.
According to the net there were two ways to hook it up. You either used the ISA Interface card that came with it or a special Link box that never made it to full development and can only be found once in a blue moon and sometimes in schematic form.
From the photos the auction you get the basics. The controller, cables and the headset. I worried about what happened to the VIP interface card. I hope it's just off-camera (he couldn't use it without the card or link box) There's a complete VFX1 here (minus the SDK, that was extra.) and with it you see the card which connected to your video card using the VESA Feature connector.
No matter what, it looks like fun!

EDIT: Darn. The last place where you could download drivers and software, Mindflux seems to be full of dead links. This will be fun trying to find them now.

Image <-------- A very happy forum member.
Not really.
If you built the Link box you could bypass the VIP card and plug directly into a standard VGA output (or use a passthrough). The only real reason you couldn't use AGP was because it lacked the VESA Feature connector.
People have managed to get resolutions up to 1024 x 768 with link boxes but so far it looks like alot of work with the soldering iron. At least we have a component supplier in town.
Do you still have the cd's/disks? The utilities and drivers would be really nice.

BuMP
Guess what I picked up at the post office yesterday morning. :mrgreen:
I'm still bummed out that I didn't get the VIP card. I have a system all ready for the card and headset.
It's a bit bulky though. :|
Oh yeah, I have managed to gather all the software and papers related to the VFX1. Among other things, I now have the drivers, SDK and some great datasheets and schematics unzipped and stored on a CD.

Have you got it up and running yet?

Nope. :(
Without that VIP card the headset won't work. I don't have the money to make a linkbox either so I will just have to pray for now that I find one of those cards.

They are not that hard to make. There are schematics available that can be used to build one as well as a parts list.
You can also get the SDK for free.

Wonderful!
While it's not a pci card (well, there goes putting use to my dual PII system) but I found out that the old 64 meg Winfast Geforce 2 Pro I pulled from my linux box a few months back (too old for latest Nivdia drivers) has a VIP card compatible feature connector.
Well at least I won't be stuck with that horrendous 8 meg thing I was planning on using once I found one of those dang cards.

Will there be any problems installing AIX 1.3 on a Model 55 SX with a PureData network card and a 160Mb ESDI drive?
I have one kicking around and I find it's not good enough for OS/2.

:evil: I just came home and as soon as the ol' 55SX was setup I turned it on and was greeted with a cmos reset and a clock that won't hold time. Yep, time to install an external battery on the Dallas chip.
We will have to wait now. I'm far too busy to do that and I'm short a coin-type battery holder (Tape does not seem to hold the wires well).
On the other hand I looked at that Vetusware download and it looks pretty good. It even states my system is compatible (according to documentation). Now I just need to find out how to image those .img files to a floppy with windows. Every other system I own that could do this is either down or needs parts. Rawrite should do the trick and I think I also have a graphical alternative that should work too. Good thing I have 200+ floppies sitting around.

I also looked around and it seems that almost all the emulators have trouble running AIX 1.3. PS/2 systems are not that uncommon.

You need a real 386/486 to run AIX. An SX won't cut it.

I'm off to do work and don't expect to be back until ten tonight but I'll attempt an install tomorrow.
I have a little snip on how to use DD to extract those images so it looks like the floppy drive in the indigo will be getting some work.

Okay, I am able to start the install fine and everything goes fine until I have to insert disk eight in the base system floppies.
I tried several different disks and each time it rejects it.

I had to pack the system away for another rainy day.
I'll have to download that alternative disk image from there another time.
I've had to down from a 2gig, to a 1gig and now down to a 500Meg disk in order for AIX to boot from the hard disk.

odd, you should of been fine with a 1 gig drive.
