to Majix's IRIX Administration Guide. This guide started as a small
project, because it turned out to be rather hard to get information
on setting up and administrating IRIX. Some screenshots
of the IRIX desktop can be found here.
The first section tries to explain how you get IRIX on a blank
disc. Unfortunately this isn't self-explanatory and especially
beginners might get frustrated. But once the system is set up,
IRIX will be a pleasure to administrate.
An operating system without networking is as boring as a TV without
an antenna. Setting up networking with the newest IRIX release
(6.5) is easy, but with older versions you might find some difficulties.
Now you have running box, so what's next? There are many things
you want to or even should change. This section tries to help
you finding a starting point for administration and maybe even
helps you with your daily work.
The SGI IRIX Magic Desktop - when it came out, it must have been
like a revolution. But there are some details not everyone knows.
Well using only IRIX won't help you much, here I will point you
to some productive software.
