Users of SGI systems at CERN should be aware of a new support service now
getting under way in CN. DCI Group, UNIX Workstation Support Section are
establishing a new service for SGI along the lines of that already offered
for several other UNIX workstation vendors. Some aspects of this are --
We have purchased licences for the so-called Varsity Package of software
consisting of -
IRIX Development Option (IDO) (includes C Compiler, source debugger,
IRIX GL, Display Postscript, X11 and Motif development library support)
NFS (includes NIS)
This is available to SGI owners at CERN for SFr 600 per node, one time
Some products are already available, the rest are on order. If you want
access to any of them, send a TID for the required amount to Alan Silverman.
SGI support, apart from SGI use within CORE, is centralised in DCI/UWS and
all questions should be sent to SGI.SUPPORT@CERN.CH.
Our support is backed
by a regular software support contract with SGI covering all SGI nodes
currently installed on site.
Other new services are being worked on, for example a documentation
service and will be announced when ready.
