What is the SGI User Group and the SGIdev Network?
- SGI UG is a community of like-minded SGI enthusiasts interested in using SGI systems in a modern computing context.
- It’s also a place to hack and work on porting modern software to work on recent versions of IRIX
- Finally, it’s a place to find out eveyything about SGI systems, IRIX and general retro-computing
There are three main ways to interact with SGIdev/UG:
SGIdev website has ready to go binaries of GCC for IRIX as well as in-depth directions on installing IRIX, porting software and working with some of the particularities of this retro distribution of UNIX. Visit here first.
Then there is a Discord channel for real-time questions, discussion and hacking IRIX using GNU tool-chains or the legendary MIPSPro compiler.
The SGI User Group has a full forum for longer term postings, trades, and sales of SGI and other gear as well as some how-tos and collections of software links around the web.
Come by today and enjoy or find your SGI.
