Re: IRIX installation party

You probably should confirm but it looks like there are PS/2 keyboards for other SGI products. The site below is usually correct but not perfect. I have found an error there before.
That is so weird for them to use +8v and -8v supplies.

Hmm. I actually don't have a keyboard that works. I read the warnings about PS/2 keyboard and never connected one to the unit. I bought an SGI keyboard off eBay and it came in this week. I tried connecting it and it seems as if it's miss-wired. Doesn't work and the LEDs seem like they may be connected to data lines. Did SGI make PS/2 keyboards? Did I damage my Indigo 1?
Can anyone bring an extra keyboard to the meeting to test with?

Hmm.. Funny you should bring that up. I have a Indigo (1) that needs IRIX. Was going to do it soon. Looking like next Saturday then!

If there's any interest (and anyone with SGI hardware), I can assist with installing IRIX during the next meeting.
I have a netboot host and media for 6.5.30 and 6.5.22.
Depending on the system, the install can take some time.
