dip says 'set HOSTNAME', but it's set

Post by ming z » Fri, 28 Jul 1995 04:00:00

I'm trying to use the campus' SLIP dial in service.  According to
book, after I dial into the SLIP and get an IP address, I'm supposed
to come back to the local dip prompt and type 'mode SLIP'.  But
everytime I do this, dip responds with something like "set HOSTNAME"
first.  When I check HOSTNAME env variable in the Linux, it's set
to a name I used in the login script.  Anybody know what dip is
trying to get to here?  Thanks for any help

1. 'mount' say NO iso9660 support and 'cat /proc/filesystems' say YES!!!


While I was fighting to get the CDROM (Sony CDU76E ATAPI CD) to be mounted
I found in the README file in device dir that the ATAPI CDs connected to the
second IDE interface should be drived by /dev/hdc, when I did and mount gives
this message

mount: iso9660 is not supported bt this kernel.

I installed InfoMagic Slakeware 2.2.1 (March 95 CDs).
While The kernel say it knows about the iso9660. I did

cat  /proc/filesystems

and iso9660 appeared as a block fs.

Before the /cdrom was linked to /dev/hd1a  ( done by the setup) and I was
getting the message

mount: /dev/hd1a is not a block device.

Any Clue.

I'm going to install the 1.2.10 kernel.
