Sun http://www.sun.com gave us this model 4/50 SPARCstation IPX
in 1992 to do a Solaris port of our applications.
They named the Sun "consulting". It ran Solaris 2.1 in 28 MB RAM.
It has a 208 MB internal disk and an external unit with a 669 MB disk
and a 150 MB tape drive.
The monitor is type 365-1112.
The front of the cpu box.
The SPARCstation IPX label.
The back of the cpu box.
The number on the back.
SunPro SPARCompiler C 2.0.1 Programmer's Guide,
part number 800-6578-11, revision A, from October 1992.
We used this compiler on our original IPX.
The compiler had a single user license and would run only
one instance of itself at once.
If you tried to start a second compile going,
the new compile would wait until the running compile finished.
We installed gcc http://gcc.gnu.org from http://www.sunfreeware.com on our newer systems.
The Sun IPX node name "apollo" running SCS/ClassPag http://www.newspapersystems.com
under Solaris 2.6.
The top box is an expansion disk drive.
The middle box is a CD ROM reader.
The bottom box has the CPU and system disk.
Note the old-fashioned CD ROM caddy at the lower right.
Solaris joke from Nov 2002:
George Clooney's new movie is called Solaris. http://www.georgeclooney.org/html/Solaris.html
From which we can deduce that it's expensive, slow moving, has lots of bugs and will only make sense on the fifth sequel.
