Re: Network Install Onyx2 Missing eaddr

Ah well, all done, still have speckles on the screen, so suspect some hardware issue. Log in over the network or serial console, run /usr/gfx/stopgfx. Then run IR diagnostics: /usr/diags/IR/bin/irsaudit That'll tell you what's going on. When you're done, /usr/gfx/startgfx will restart the graphics ...

Re: Network Install Onyx2 Missing eaddr

Well that was a PITA!! Booted to CD and set source to network, which worked in as much as nothing.. so had to do a disk install. Ah well, all done, still have speckles on the screen, so suspect some hardware issue. Boot up is clean apart from... IR0: ARM: Error executing stored video command 8 @0x04...

Network Install Onyx2 Missing eaddr

Attempting net install from Octane onto Onyx2. The Onyx2 does not have the eaddr set in the env / nvram. Now it must have because lmhostid showed up b0:02:01:81 I can add it with setenv -f eaddr b0:02:01:81, but this does not last a restart and I suspect does not last going through the install proce...

Re: £30 8 CPU Origin 2000 only worth £22.50 lets add an Oynx 2

2 x R10 030 1402 001 IR3? Those are RM9-64 modules. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SGI-030-1402-001-RM9-64-Raster-Manager-for-InfiniteReality2E-on-Onyx-2-/391576878778 Now, interestingly, these were RM10s and not R9s as your ebay link shows. The part number I supplied came off the board, the box had ha...

Re: £30 8 CPU Origin 2000 only worth £22.50 lets add an Oynx 2

Update time. I plumbed in the Onyx2 to monitor / keyboard and the display produced speckling (unsure of a word for it really) all over the screen. So rather than mess around, I went straight for the replacement boards.. upgrade to Infinite Reality 3... All went well (ish) and obtained the following ...

Re: nic_addr: failed to find readable MAC NIC, rc, 1

The Octane Ethernet address is stored in a Dallas Number-in-a-Can chip connected to a 1-Wire bus with other NIC chips storing serial numbers of the power supply and front panel. If a detailed hinv (hinv -m -v) shows the power supply serial number, then only the Ethernet address NIC chip is bad; oth...

Re: AUTODESK FLAME 2008 SERVICE PACK 6

Flame 2008 expects only 1920 resolution. Smaller screens doesn't fit whole interface. My screen res is 1680x1050 and i also don't have preference button so I must use shortcuts to exit. indeed, I was thinking one of my 2008 screens was running a lower resolution, but just checked and you are correct.

Re: AUTODESK FLAME 2008 SERVICE PACK 6

The system is running at 1280x1024_60, as the single monitor options for 1920 have strange vertical dimensions that are not compatible with my monitor. The only option for 1920x1080_60 is for a dual monitor setup. Do you have 1600x1200 available? Negative, as this is a shitty, 1920x1080 monitor! (T...
