Sabayon Products: Software: IRIX The IRIX® operating system is the leading technical high-performance 64-bit operating system based on industry-standard UNIX®. For the past 20 years, SGI has been designing scalable platforms based on the IRIX operating system to connect technical and creative professionals to a world of innovation and discovery. With IRIX, customers can take full advantage of MIPS® processor-based SGI® systems, ranging from visual workstations to advanced visualization systems and high-productivity supercomputers. IRIX 6.5 is SGI's fifth generation of IRIX and is one of the most important and mature UNIX operating system releases in the industry. Designed for users with the most demanding technical compute and visualization needs, IRIX 6.5 readily scales to tackle huge data sets, compute-intensive problems, and real-time 3D visualization enhancements with ease. MIPS IRIX products are offered as of March 2007 only through the SGI Remarketed Products Group (RPG).

Console Server Last modified on 2014-04-28 by wblock. Abstract This document describes how you can use FreeBSD to set up a “console server”. A console server is a machine that you can use to monitor the consoles of many other machines, instead of a bunch of serial terminals. You have a computer room with lots of UNIX® server machines and lots of communications hardware. You need access to the console because when things break, that is where error messages go. If we are going to play about with consoles, then there are a couple of other things that would be great: Remote access.

PC-BSD This release of PC-BSD® unhinges from the KDE Desktop Environment and adds support for GNOME, LXDE, and more! A unified Control Panel is available across all desktop environments to ensure a consistent experience configuring your desktop. The Joule Edition was released in January 2014. It is now available for direct download from our high-speed CDN service. Casual Computing PC-BSD is a desktop operating system based on FreeBSD. Simple. From the installation of the system to its use thereafter, PC-BSD's goals are to never have a user run aground of viruses, driver issues, or anything that would impede ease-of-use and general reliability.

Explaining BSD Last modified on 2018-06-29 07:33:14 by eadler. Abstract In the open source world, the word “Linux” is almost synonymous with “Operating System”, but it is not the only open source UNIX® operating system. So what is the secret? Throughout this paper, differences between BSD and Linux will be noted like this. BSD stands for “Berkeley Software Distribution”. The BSD kernel, which handles process scheduling, memory management, symmetric multi-processing (SMP), device drivers, etc.The C library, the base API for the system.The BSD C library is based on code from Berkeley, not the GNU project.Utilities such as shells, file utilities, compilers and linkers.Some of the utilities are derived from the GNU project, others are not.The X Window system, which handles graphical display.The X Window system used in most versions of BSD is maintained by the X.Org project.
