 1. The Red and Black Anemonefish [Amphiprion melanopus] usually has one white bar on the head behind the eye, although some fish lack a bar. Its breast, belly and dorsal fin are red to orange. Much of the side of the body is black.

How/where the machine was maintained

History prior to arriving to UCC

  • Melanopus was the GFS locking server for FSI's filesystem cluster.

UCC machine history

  • Melanopus is sitting in the clubroom as a user machine, where Seriola used to live.

Current machine tasks

Current software configuration

  • Debian Sarge, GNOME

Current hardware configuration

  • 2x 733MHz Alpha EV67 processors with 8MB cache
  • 1.5GB RAM
  • 18GB SCSI disc

Future plans for the machine

  • None

Special Notes

  • Onboard USB is meant to be supported by the OHCI driver, but doesn't seem to work under the latest Linux 2.4.
  • Something in Debian's Linux 2.6 kernels prevents sd_mod from loading properly. No SCSI driver == bad.

Thanks to:

  • Fugro Seismic Imaging for their donation of the machine, and
  • PXY and TRS for making it work.
