Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

I know this has been asked before but I figured I'd give it another go. I'm looking for complete cd-sets for either 6.2 (for Indigo2) or 6.5 (also Indigo2 Non-Impact).

Thanks

I am currently trying to download it myself, I got a few of the CD:s, but I am unsure which CD are in each release. Do you have a list of how many CD:s and names there are for both releases? If so, PM me the list and I'll see what I have. Once I get the full collection I'll share it.

IRIX 6.2 is a two-disc release, plus one "Applications" disc. "IRIX 6.2 With Indigo2 Impact R10000" is a separate release, distinct from the regular 6.2 release and required to support that machine.

IRIX 6.5 is a ten-disc release.

* Install tools
* Foundation 1
* Foundation 2
* Applications 6/1998
* Development Foundation
* Development Libraries
* NFS/ONC3
* Documentation
* SNMP MIB
* Freeware 6/1998

Updates (overlays) to 6.5 (i.e. 6.5.3, 6.5.26) are more CDs. You need the base release to apply overlays.

Unless you're in the mood to do some magic with a netboot server. It's a major PITA but installing from just the overlays is possible.

No it isn't. Just as the name implies, overlays are deltas over the base. You will not have the whole system in the overlays.

You're wrong, I have done it. In fact I have an old Indigo2 here running an install done that way. It doesn't work with the feature stream but it does work if you use the maintenance stream.
