Re: Lucy Runs! :)

Post a pic of the drive with it's connector.

Confirm that the connecting cable can be removed from the drive?

Give "mapesdhs" a PM regarding this, as he may be able to sell you the correct cable.

i have an empty console
Try to get that mouse plugged in the PS/2 port and take the mouse out of the serial port.

Re: Lucy Runs! :)

the keyboard is a regular pc-keyboard (it works -> i can type stuff) Im not 100% sure, as I haven't experimented with this, but I don't know whether you can get into the IRIX GUI without a mouse being present. What do you see once IRIX has loaded? If I remember correctly, in the past, I think I had...

Re: Restore monitor res in command prom

I inserted the old IRIX system hard drive into the octane and copied / replaced all the files from the /usr/gfx/... location in hope it would replace any 'bad' files. Rebooted with th...
