I have recently installed mips-linux 7.0 on an sgi indy machine and
installed the included XF86 rpms. When i execute the command startx i get
the message "waiting for X server to begin accepting connections". After
that nothing happens. I suppose this has to do with the network not working
as it should because i can´t ping "localhost" or "hostname" on the
mips-linux machine. The mips-linux machine can´t ping the other computers
on the network (except for another sgi running irix) either but it can
access them via ftp, nfs and telnet. All the other machines can ping and
reach the sgi via telnet. I am quite stuck here and all out of ideas, if
you have any clue what i have done wrong please let me know.
By the way do anyone know about a kernel with support for indys that doesnt
have the newport graphics board (i have one indy with a GR2 XZ)?
