 Exploit world -- SGI IRIX section
IRIX 6.3 and 6.4, the older versions are vulnerable to an even easier version of the same problem.
Overflows in IRIX /usr/sbin/X11/xconsole, /usr/sbin/X11/cdplayer, /usr/sbin/xwsh, and /usr/sbin/monpanel.
IRIX 6.2, 5.x is probably vulnerable, but needs a rewritten exploit due to stack position.

 SGI SPECIAL: Introducing the Jewel of UNIX, the 64-bit IRIX OS - OSNews.com
Being a UNIX, IRIX is fully multi-user, and while I tried all the pre-configured users on this machine (including root), I mostly used the system for the past two weeks using the "Guest" account.
For the Unix side of things, IRIX is based on BSD 4.4 (do not confuse this root of all BSDs in the '80s with today's FreeBSD 4.x), and its directory structure is definately a bit different than what you find on today's Linuxes.
IRIX is pretty much the same as it was 2 or 3 or 4 years ago.

 NewsForge | My Workstation OS: Irix
For the uninitiated, Irix is the operating system developed by SGI (formerly known as Silicon Graphics) for its RISC-based Unix workstations, which are used for high-end graphics tasks by governmental organisations, film studios, and engineering firms.
When it was first released with Irix 5.3 and the Silicon Graphics Indy in 1993, however, it brought new features to the desktop, some of which are only now being copied by user interface designers.
My first exposure to Irix was in an Indy used as a graphics processor for converting vector graphics to raster for high end printing back in the days when you could not expect a PC or mac to do that kind of job.

 Notes on building Open Source software on IRIX
It may be missing some items but as someone who has built literally hundreds of packages on IRIX over the years I'm pretty confident that most of the pitfalls are covered.
This is incorrect on IRIX which keeps some old libraries around just for the sake of backward compatibility with very old programs.
IRIX supports a more elegant model of 'inst'able packages that can be built anywhere and installed anywhere else (cross builds/compiles).

 IRIX Interactive Desktop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
IRIX Interactive Desktop (originally called Indigo Magic) is a desktop environment normally used as the default desktop on Silicon Graphics workstations running IRIX.
IRIX Interactive Desktop debuted in September 1993 on the Indy workstation model.
The IRIX Interactive Desktop was one of the first default graphical user interface desktops to be standard on a particular Unix computer system.

 IRIX Info Page
IRIX is believed to originally have been a port of AT&T System III to the Motorola 68000 series CPU by UniSoft for Silicon Graphics, in early 1982.
The name IRIX is thought to be an amalgamate of the terms IRIS and UNIX (Integrated Raster Imaging uniX?), or derived from the ancient Greek term Irix meaning Falcon: a symbol of strength, excellence, and empowerment.
The name IRIX came into use in 1987 shortly after the introduction of the Professional Iris 4D/60, and the transition to MIPS CPUs, but the name IRIX was not officially promoted until the release of 4D1-4.0 (IRIX 4) with the IRIS Indigo workstation.

 Reputable Systems SGI systems and peripherals list
If you obtain Irix media with a system from Reputable Systems, you can load the media that came with the system onto a machine you already own (if it is licensed for that particular version of Irix).
The Irix 6.5 sets available for purchase with a system are complete sets, including the Foundation 1 and 2 discs, the Developer's Foundation, the Developer's Libraries, ONC3/NFS, Documentation disc, and other discs.
This may or may not be such a good deal, as you may be able to pick up an entire used system for less than the price of a year's worth of SGI support.

 History of IRIX   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-11)
It seems fairly clear that the original 1.x IRIX releases were never actually given a 1.x designation (that GL2-W3.5 would have been called Release 5.0, and then would be version 1.5.0 in relation to the 4D/MIPS line, since that started with 2.0).
So IRIX 1 had to have been branched off of System III first by UniSoft since SGI was founded in late 1981, then V merged in soon after (System IV was an AT&T internal-only release, and System V was released in January 1983.
I found some pictures of a very old version of IRIX (either 3 or 4) in one, and once I find it again, I'll scan it - I think it was in a copy of Unix Magazine from the early 90's.

 Migrating files and email from irix to Ultra: Computer Centre: University of Leicester
To transfer your irix files to Ultra it is recommended that you login to the Ultra service using an X11 session and use the "gFTP" program.
To move a single file or directory from the irix service to Ultra click on the file (or directory) and then click on the lower of the two transfer buttons.
However, if you want email addressed to @le.ac.uk to be forwarded directly to Ultra from the campus mail hubs (ie: you want to set Ultra to be your default mailbox) you should email infodesk@le.ac.uk.

 IRIX Interactive Desktop 6.5   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-11)
IRIX is a UNIX based OS written by SGI for their workstation computers.
One of the most unique features about the IRIX desktop is that its icons are vector images instead of bit-mapped images.
The Desktop Environment Setup is somewhat unique for a Unix system in that it gives the user the option to have the same desktop environment across multiple machines on a network or choose to use a new environment for a machine.

IRIX has transitioned its hardware line completely to 64-bit technology, but lags in the area of 64-bit standards conformance, without support for the predecessor of the 64-bit UNIX98 standard, UNIX95.” —D.H. Brown Associates
IRIX 6.4 places third, bundling CacheFS and AutoFS, and network security features almost as strong as Digital’s.
“IRIX 6.4 earns a surprising lead [among commercial UNIXs] for reliability and scalability functions overall, having previously introduced many of the features that are only now being offered by high-profile commercial competitors.

If it sounds like a broken record to you, that's because it is. Bugs are there, and a lot of them, all look alike, so the gap between regular and superuser in Irix is closing.
When I read phrases like "rfind is a fast, client-server adaptation of the find(1) command" it scares me. One more network daemon written in a sloppy way is the last thing I need, I don't want my machine to be a server for somebody's "fast client".

 IRIX notes
I don't pretend to be particularly familiar with the available software on an IRIX system, but I gather that this is a fairly typical installation on a fresh install.
IRIX doesn't seem to start with the correct permissions on /var/mail, so you will probably want to chmod 1777 (drwxrwxrwt) so mail is handled correctly.
IRIX doesn't come equipped with any working compilers by default - unless you want to pay the licensing fees for an SGI (MipsPro?) compiler.
