REANIMATOR.jpg


Reanimator allows Silicon Graphics IRIX network installation using a Raspberry Pi or VirtualBox


Select version to download:

Lite: (~740 MB) no IRIX images included, automatically download the images you need or customize your own IRIX installation. Versions available for downloading: 5.3, 6.2, 6.3, 6.5.0, 6.5.7, 6.5.22 and 6.5.30.
Full: (~9.7 GB) includes several IRIX versions for offline installation: 5.3, 6.2, 6.5.22 and 6.5.30.
If you don't have a Raspberry Pi, try using the VirtualBox version please (~550 MB, it's much slower but still functional)
