Cleaning up the home office today, I uncovered my beloved SGI
Indigo2, which is in running condition but hasn't been used in
several months at least. I think, unfortunately, it's time to part
It is a Purple Indigo2 IMPACT, R10K IP28, 384MB RAM with a 4GB disk.
It has the SGI floppy drive installed, as well as a compatible (non-
SGI) CDROM drive sitting in the bay. It was loaded about 2 years ago
with 6.5.twenty*mumble* and was running pretty well. The box will
run Linux using some unofficial patches floating around for the
kernel & gcc, but it's really meant to be an IRIX machine. To my
knowledge it will not boot *BSD.
Anyone local to Pittsburgh PA 15131 interested in this guy? Original
keyboard and mouse, as well as correctly pinned 13W3 to HD15 adapter
will go with it (original SGI CRT died and was recycled). Probably
too heavy to ship, but I can part it out if no local takers. I might
be able to arrange delivery to the DC area during the week of 8/
December (I'll be down that way for work).
I also have an IRIX 6.5 Base Install set that I'll let go with this
Contact me off-list if interested. Price is somewhere between $0 and
