SGI (MIPS) tips & tricks

Retrieving PROM contents

  • in the prom-menu, enter: dump -b 0xBFC00000:0xBFC80000, please note that my own O200 seemed to hang when I executed that command
  • make a copy of /usr/cpu/firmware/
  • create a dump using flash -D (Origin and OCTANE, Everest doesn't seem to be possible), the command will tell you in what file the prom-contents is written
