Re: SGI Altix 350/3700 - 450/4700

Thanks It is very helpful.

We would like to offer a local customer the installation services for Debian on SGI Altix. How can you collaborate with us with such proposal ? What is the process to hire your services in case we
hit a bug or a problem while installing.

I have an SGI Altix 350 available and once they see that running I believe I can convince them to purchase a Altix 450 to do the same.

Hi Anibal,

Some months ago I begun to try installing Debian etch on an Altix 350. It worked out by doing some changes that are explained on the link you found. I then informed the debian community and Dan Frazier made those changes on etch (I think there is only one thing left which is bug 408588).

Since then I never tried the official etch cd to see if everything is ok because I use the cd I created which is based on etch in December 2006 (http://rad.bioinfo.ulaval.ca/hardware/altixia64/netinst_debian_altix.iso/download). This one boot and install whitout problem on our 350 and 3700 servers.

Two weeks ago, we received a 450 and I tried to boot the cd I'm talking about but it diden't worked (kernel crash when booting - but again, this is a december version). I will have a look at that in 2 or 3 weeks (I will also try the actual etch cd).

Hope this helps.

That is part of the question, meaning whether it will work or not. The
other question is if there is a cheat sheet to follow for the installation.
I found one on the web but I wanted to confirm with some of the members
of the Debian community if they have tried as well.

Here is what I found :
