Kernel compilation crashed with unresolved references to prom_meminit() and prom_free_prom_memory() on my Octane machine. I found that the problem was not enabling CONFIG_ARC_MEMORY option so arch/mips/arc/memory.c didn't compile. I got around the issue by adding IP30 to the config ARC_MEMORY section of arch/mips/Kconfig.
I haven't yet tested my kernel properly. I can only report that it compiled and booted.
I'd like to know if the CONFIG_ARC_MEMORY on IP30 was omited intentionaly or if it is a bug.

hanc: That is indeed a bug... pester `Kumba on #gentoo-mips, or file a bug.

nop2001: What issue? You don't mention any.

on octane2 equipped with GFX_ImpactSR (GFX~=the video board), X11 is pretty
if you have a sgi-machine not equipped with a supported GFX .... no problem !
you could use Xvnc to export X11 to an other machine (a notebook, for example)
personally i find Xvnc very interesting on an octane equipped with GFX_{V6,V8,V12}
the GFX_V* family is still not supported by X11, but with Xvnc i have X11 fun

My Octane came with a V6 and I outfitted it with an additional SE, so I have both.

However X over some sort of framebuffer is not exactly my idea of fun, and what's the use of a workstation you have to remote control by (glacially slow, btw) XVnc.

XDMCP isn't too bad usually. In fact, it can be faster than IMPACT, since the Octane isn't worried about the specifics behind drawing on the screen, and the X server is presumably running a driver with full acceleration.
