Mame Indigo2 emulation.
Just a heads up, Mame's indigo2 emulation can install and boot to Irix 6.5 desktop.  It is still very slow, but there has been some major progress recently.  Made a snapshot of the desktop:

Please keep emulation to the emulation sections.

RE: Mame Indigo2 emulation.
The latest GIT build allows use of a lower clocked 100mhz R4600 Indy, which runs a tiny bit faster. It also fixes the graphical errors above, I think.

I never managed to install Irix on a Indigo2 in MAME, though, as it crashed due to the HOSTID not being set (it seemed that setenv -f only worked on the Indy?)

Would anyone mind sharing a .chd image with 6.5 installed? Would also be helpful to know the exact ROM name that you used to boot it.

Use the indy_4610.bin rom, for the R4600 100mhz. It's smoother running (though in actual spec the slowest Indy).

This, please. Figured next time I would see that desktop would be in emulation.
