i have 4 of the granite sgi p-4g-ext external hard drives and would like to put larger capacity drives inside the enclosure.  Will any 68pin ultra scsi drive work?  I would like to put T least a 73 gig drive into the enclosures then stripe the 4 units as one for real time SD video.

Hi everyone,

some years ago there was a page at http://rshockley.dyndns.org/indigo.htm that contained schematics for a converter to attach regular PS2 keyboards to an Indigo machine. It also contained the source code and binary for the firmware that had to be flashed onto a PIC in that converter.

Does anyone happen to have a copy of that stuff lying around? It's nowhere to be found on the net anymore, and people are making big money off from selling converters on eBay (50$ for something that has a parts and hardware cost of maybe 5-10$). So I'd like to make my own converter, but for that I'd need those firmware files and schematics

Any help would be appreciated

Has anyone had any issues with their mouse not working unless you unplug it and plug it back in after logging in?

Whenever I get to the login screen the mouse is unresponsive. I have to login, wait for the desktop to load and then unplug the mouse for about 15 seconds before plugging it back in. Then the mouse will start working with no issues.

I’ve ruled out that this is a hardware issue with the mouse since it works perfectly on other machines. Additionally the port appears to be working correctly after I remove and reinstall the mouse. No blown fuses either. This issue is on a Crimson using a PS/2 adapter. It’s also a new issue that just started.

I’m thinking this is an IRIX issue and it’s not recognizing the mouse initially or it’s waiting for another input device.

Anyone have any thoughts?

I use the default Firefox that comes with Solaris 10 sparc on my sun blade, but is there any modern browser I can use to get on more modern websites, like Github?

First I want to say thanks to one who uploaded Dalim - I searched it for years with no success.)
Second - maybe someone have access to DaVinci and can upload it to FTP for community?

The maximum monitor resolution available using the display properties is 1280x1024.  I do have the 1600sw card installed giving me 1600 x 1024 on the 1600sw monitor.   Is there a way I can get 1600 resolution on my Sony sdm-p232 23” display?

I want to add another 68 pin UW scsi controller for my octane. Is the a xio card available that adds an additional scsi port.  I have the Ultra 4 port scsi controller xio but it only works with differential drives.  All my arrays and drives are SE.

I would also be interested in any differential ultra Scsi array models as well if anyone has ideas.

so I've been installing everything on the ftp, and I must of done something that is really screwing up my o2.  Basically its not very responsive, it seems to have long periods of time between processing certain commands, for example if I try to uncompress and untar a file, it takes way too long - for example a 200mb .tgz file is taking anywhere from 30-50 minutes to uncompress/untar.

here is a video showing the issue:
https://youtu.be/05Z4iH2Y3bY



the thing that is interesting is that not all commands seem to be having an issue.  here is a diskperf:

Currently the o2 has a 500GB SSD, I cloned the disk to a 15K 300GB brand new SCSI disk and it's having the same issue, so I proved out my HDD.  I've been chkconfig'ing off most things, I've been disabling stuff in /etc/rc2.d, I just can't seem to figure out what the issue is.  I figured I'd post and perhaps someone might have some ideas where to look next.

here is my current chkconfig:
