Stoned koala bears drooled eucalyptus spit in awe as Matthew Haas exclaimed:

Irix 6.4 only supports a limited set of machines, IIRC these include the 
Octane, Origin, Origin II, and *maybe* the 02, I'd have to go look at the 
documentation that came with my media to see.  If it's an R4K box, I am 
almost certain that 6.5 will run on it.  However, I just installed 6.5 on 
my  R4600 Indy, and I am seriously considering wiping it out and putting 
6.2 back on it.  6.5.11 is dog slow on it.
