    Please recheck the exact wording. 6.5.22 is the last supported
    overlay for some models of SGI systems, such as the Indy and Indigo^2.

    Preposterous!! Where would all the calculators go?!

    I'd really hope SGI don't bin irix. It's the one OS I have complete faith
    in.

    I have heard people say irix 7 but neh it'll never happen....ok yeh it
    might but not for a while.

    http://www.debian.org
    http://www.kernel.org

    and the list goes on...

    Yeah but your "IRIX 7" aka Linux right now won't run on a
    dual R12K 300MHz mounted into an Octane... as far as I know

    that never seems to matter to the linux on mips crowd...

    as long as it is "linux" the open source camp will dance with joy
    even if it only boots to single user after a month of patching...

    cheers.
