Anyone interested in the 6.5.15 IRIX foundations and overlays? Usable For most SGI machines up until O2 iirc. Newer overlays can be downloaded from SGI but the foundations are tricker to get hold of. The images are in .cdr format which is Mac OS X's cd/dvd mastering format.

The filesystems on the discs aren't ISO but are mountable in Linux using XFS (I seem to recall it was) and ought to be burnable and bootable on any OS.

Yeah, I would be interested in it. I've been trying to collect the IRIX versions for some time. Which date does this version have?

I use 6.5.30 on my O2. I see no reason why 6.5.15 wouldn't work on it either.

I have no idea what date they are from, the foundation is the 6.5 foundation and the date on those doesn't really matter. The overlays are 6.5.15 which is pretty old, but since you can download newer overlays from SGI for free it's not really important.

I'll upload the zipped files to the betaarchive ftp.

Edit: Files uploaded

The O² can run IRIX 6.3 - IRIX 6.5.30. In fact, IRIX 6.3 may have been exclusive to the O².

Collecting Overlays for IRIX is like collecting Service Packs for Windows. Overlays (minor point releases) are mainly bug fixes with very little (if any) new software. This applies mainly to IRIX 6.5.x. Prior releases of IRIX actually do have notable benefits when updating to a newer major/minor point release, for example: updating from IRIX 4.0 to IRIX 4.0.5 would be a major point update in IRIX 4.0.x version.

SGI was usually on a quarterly release cycle with its MIPS hardware and IRIX, so IRIX 6.5.15 is probably 2001 or 2002. IRIX 6.5 came out in 1998.

Thanks for the information. Haven't been active with Irix for a couple of years so I'm a little rusty, I can set up a netboot installation server using just maintenance overlays though. :P
