Ok, so here's the question: I just bought a second hand Octane. I don't know
shit about the platform, but am willing to learn.
I also bought a 2nd hand external scsi cdrw which i intend 2 connect to my
My question is: How ( where ? ) can I get a new Irix 6.5.27 distribution ?
I've been to supportfolio ( think that's the name ), created an account, but
under downloads, 6.5.27 distribution is locked.
Now, I REALLY don't know much ( anything 2 tell the truth ) about Irix, and
that puzzles me. I guess it's not a free OS. But then again, seems like it
is some sort od unix/linux derivate . . and most of those are free. Right ?
Am I supposed to buy an entire OS and if so where ? Or am I entitled to some
sort of free upgrade, since I am after all a legire Octane owner with some
Irix isntalled on the machine. Think it's 6.5 . .
Any help appriciated.
