How old are your RM400/10s?
I have an 8 years old RM400/05 here are I would really like to get
Linux running on it.
Here are some technical data:
Processor: MIPS R3000A + R3010A Coproc
some strange Kind of Streamer,
SCSI onboard, Differential SCSI support (could be NCR 52C200)
Ethernet onboard (Intel Ethernet chipset, i guess)
(see chip list below)
7 ISA Slots
The problem is, I have _no_ documentation on the hardware,
I have only the docu that comes with a SINIX V5.41 B 10
Therefore, please accept my apologies for the rather long
chip list below, perhaps somebody can identify some of the
components and tell me if they can be supported by Linux/MIPS.
And here the labels on some of the major chips on the mainboard:
(CPU): SIEMENS SAB-
(M)(C) MIPS '89 146
(Coproc): SIEMENS SAB-
(left of the CPU):
LSI LR 3230 HC-33
NAC 9301 [delta]
OB 9507 FSDNA2
APPIAN POACH 8
APPIAN POACH 1
(near the ISA slots, right):
N 9343 06198
(near the ISA slots, above):
VLSI 9252 BV 271671
(further above, could be SCSI?):
(further above, could be Ethernet?):
