The nice people at Sydney University have given me a MIPS Magnum 4000SC-50
machine to help with the Linux/MIPS port. The trouble is, I have no doco,
and the machine has:
No Graphics Card
Now, the lack of floppy and HD is no problem as I have some of those, and
I'm assuming that the machine has been used as a server (i.e. without KB
or Vid,), so that they pose no problem either (it was running RISC/OS).
I'd like to know:
What RAM to use? Standard 72pin SIMMs? What sizes are
o.k? Which SIMM sockets do I populate first? Do I need
to put them in 1 or n at a time?
It currently puts the following sequence onto it's
internal diagnostic LED on RESET:
...and stops at '1'. I'm assuming it wants RAM before it
can go any further.
Any help would be appreciated.
