I notoice that the output of 'hinv -v' (from Irix) is the same as just 'hinv'. Is that normal?

$ hinv -v

here is the other one:

I thought the '-v' parameter was supposed to show me more stuff?

It does, but it's mostly on the higher-end IRIX machines (Octane, Fuel, O2000, etc.) where you'll see the difference. There are lots of 'hinv' examples on the Nekochan forums for comparison.

Didn't expect to see you here neko. ;)

Anyways, the -v usually just makes the output more "verbose" per say. When in doubt, just type
man hinv
...and press enter for more information.

Aha, it must be Pentium :)

Yep, trying to repair/rebuild a bunch of machines, so have been out and about more than usual.
