Personal Iris’s gone, fresh install on Indy

Saturday, June 19th, 2004 at 5:11 pm

On Wednesday night I posted a message to the ClassicCmp list saying that I had two SGI Personal Iris systems available for free. These systems were part of a bulk lot I obtained late last year, but since I hadn’t done anything with them and didn’t forsee any progress in the near (or even distant) future I decided that I no longer had a reason to keep them. Plus they took up a lot of space…

Anyway, a scant fourteen minutes after I posted my message I had a response from a guy who wanted to know when he could pick them up. He came by this morning and the systems will now be part of his collection of SGI systems that until now had not included even one Personal Iris, and now he has two.

Although I gave the systems away for free he brought along his Irix 6.5 installation cd’s and I grabbed a copy of them after we loaded up his car. So after lunch I extracted my Indy from the computer pile, set it up, and began installing Irix…

As I type it is almost complete…
