O2 r10k sash not found

I've personally toyed around with one of these. It works insofar as printing random error messages to the screen, locking up randomly, and eating small fluffy animals if they happen to wander near the machine while it's powered on. As such, we officially deny support for these systems until someone either gets JUICE support working, or someone manages to get the tricks used in IP28 support ported (most of this is done, only the ethernet adapter and aic7xxx driver need modifications really).

It should be looking for sash64. Check your OSLoader environment variable in the PROM to make sure it's not looking elsewhere. Second, you're supposed to invoke the CD from Install System Software, which invokes a hardcoded reference to sash64. So check those first.

here it hangs for at least 10 minutes. what surprised me that it kinda worked best on the fuel-box. :)

Got any spare Fuel machines you'd like to donate? :) It's gonna be awhile before we can support these systems because A) We have to wait for the arse-brained resellers (3ddoc & irewoulfe) on eBay to stop buying the available systems up and B) someone actually being able to port them or setup the facilities for someone to remotely login and port.

Just got hold of two (very cheap) O2 R5K boxes yesterday. :D

Just wanted to let you know I was able to use the netboot images using a free bootp/dhcp/tftp server for windows from http://tftpd32.jounin.net/

So happy it even works for my wireless connected laptop.

Now I just need to figure out how to maximize the default 2.1GB drives that the boxes came with. :roll:

Nice... I'll keep this in mind next time a user asks. (Actually, could a mod kindly split this thread... as this subtopic is offtopic for the LiveCD)

Any SCA 1" SCSI drive will do the trick. I'm happily using a 4GB and 32GB together in mine. The 4GB is just formatted as swap space, and so I use tmpfs for /tmp. Just about any size (storage wise) will do the trick.

Wondering if anyone's still paying attention to this project. I acquired an R5000 O2 and need to get into the hard drive to wipe /etc/passwd, so I burned RC5 and RC6 CDs yesterday. Popped it in and went to "Install System Software," and the kernel begins to boot, but eventually the process fails with a kernel panic.

I can't type all of the messages, but a few times it dumps information about "Sequencer SCB info."
Later it notes "scsi: Device offlined - not ready after error recovery: host 0 channel 0 id 2 lun 0."
And then shortly after the whole thing dies and dumps a call trace and other information:

"Break instruction in kernel code in arch/mips/kernel/traps.c::do_bp, line 636[#1]"
(lines of hex follow)
"Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!"

Edit: I just got it to boot by removing the scsi(0)disk(2). However, I still don't know how to make it play nice when I actually have that drive installed.

Also, I'm unable to mount the other SCSI hard disk:
"mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1" fails with:
"XFS: Attempted to mount file system using version 1 directory format
XFS: SB validate failed
mount: Function not implemented"

Can anyone offer suggestions?

My system data is the following:

That probably means something is faulty with your SCSI drives. Notably, the one hooked up as ID 2.

Because the drive is dead. It's giving off errors when accessed. This is why it's not playing nice.

It's not possible to mount XFS under Gentoo/MIPS... due to the fact that XFS is broken on most architectures, including MIPS. The only exceptions seem to be IA64, x86 and AMD64.

It's also not possible to mount XFS v1 on any version of Linux. You'll need to update that XFS filesystem to using XFS v2 directory structures before Linux can mount it, as this is all Linux XFS supports.

The weird thing is that I next switched the 2nd drive into the 1st slot and it still boots a valid copy of IRIX 6.3.

Is there a way to update the filesystem without erasing the current data?

As it is, I managed to cat /etc/passwd while in maintenance mode, so my computer is busily cracking away. One way or the other, I guess.

So the drive moves but the fault stays in the same position. That would possibly point to a faulty backplane. Either way, I'm quite certain it's a hardware issue... you can't expect faulty hardware to "play nice". Otherwise, would you necessarily consider the hardware faulty? ;-)

Not under Linux. Some more modern versions of IRIX allow you to do this, I don't know the procedure however.

It's worth noting, the Gentoo LiveCD was not designed to hack into IRIX. ;-)

Actually, I mean I tried booting only that hard disk to see if it was faulty or not. For my next test (just now :P) I *did* switch it around with both drives in place, and this time Gentoo booted without a fault. Which still leaves me wondering why it didn't like the drives in the original configuration, but doesn't mind it when they're swapped.

Ahh, if only, though. :P

I just got an SGI Origin 2000 yesterday and I tried to boot the RC6 livecd burnt to a cdrw on it. The boot process started off well but then I was greeted with a kernel panic message. Does anyone have an idea what may have gone wrong, what's needed to fix it and how it's possible to remaster the livecd image so I can at least boot the livecd to completion? When I have at least access to a working environment I can start looking at updating software and fixing other issues, but please keep in mind I'm by no means a kernel expert.

It would also be nice if someone could point me to the patches that need to be applied to a 2.6.26+ kernel in order to support booting on IP27 systems.
