REDHAT 5.0+Triteal CDE--->>weird login problem

REDHAT 5.0+Triteal CDE--->>weird login problem

Post by impu » Tue, 05 May 1998 04:00:00



Hello All,
At this point, I'm pretty frustrated fighting over a problem what
primarily seems to be a simple issue to me ;-))  Anyhow, I wont talk too
much but get back to the issue :p
I installed RedHat Linux 5.0 successfully and installed Triteal CDE (TED
4.2).   First problem I encounter was, it wont let me login as root. So,
I add 'dt' to /etc/securetty and that took care of the issue.  Now, when
I login as root, I'm able to login to all the "Session" except, Normal
Desktop.  It act as if I'm login on, and show me the Copyright
Information for about 2-3 minutes, but then bounces me back to CDE login
dialogue box again.Here's what I've tried so far:
1.  checked all the network files
etc/hosts:
127.0.0.1   localhost  localhost.localdomain

/etc/HOSTNAME:
localhost.localdomain

I'm able to ping the localhost and get reply and if I ping IP address
127.0.0.1 or 127.0.0.0, I get respond as well.

/etc/host.conf:
order hosts,bind
multi on

/etc/hostallow:
ALL 127.0.0.1
Well, if I do nslookup on localhost:
Can't find localhost: No response from Server

Note:  Previously, I configured my ISP's linux configuration, but didn't

help.  Reinstalled Linux from the scratch and trying to use it from
default networking configuration.

Quote:>From the Redhat folks as well as Robert Sweet, I got suggestion to look

into portmap.
Robert asked me to make sure portmap's started by running
/etc/rc.d/init.d/portmap start    (I ran it, regardless during init, it
showed that portmap started during boot).  RH folks asked me make sure
that check the links to '/etc/rc.d/init.d/portmap. According to them, by

re-establishing the link in each runlevel, portmap works fine and CDE,
as well as other  rpc services.
'ln -s ../init./portmap S40portmap'
or run "ntsysv"

Although  I got error message "Error running..." on ntsysv, it ran ok on

the ln command (and rebooted).  But as you can see,  "I aint change, but

I know, I aint the same"

Ok, I admit, only one thing I didn't do is downloading the patch  from
Errata
http://www.redhat.com/support/docs/cde/cde-1.2-errata.html because those

fix aren't for this issue.  Besides, I can't even connect to the
internet from Linux (right now, I'm in another OS ;-)   I can download
it in a floppy, but Linux wont recognize the File System, even I'm
successful mounting the floppy.

Come on, thers's gotta be a way to resolve the problem.  I have a fresh
copy installed right now, how do I do this?  Thanks for any pointer.


 
 
 

REDHAT 5.0+Triteal CDE--->>weird login problem

Well, thanks to Tom Temple, Andrew Yegoroff and many others for their kind
help, Eagle has landed on CDE ;-)) I'll go ahead and post it, so if there's
somebody else out there having the same problem, can get something out of
here.

1. Install RedHat 5.0 + And Triteal CDE (TED 4.2)
2. If you have access to another machine, download the patch from RH
http://www.redhat.com/support/docs/cde/cde-1.2-errata.html  or perhaps the
windowz you're dual booting with ;-)).  In that case, you can copy it to a
floppy and then
Go to Linux and at the command line type
mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy  which will convert the file system to
msdos for the floppy.  Then, simply run the rpm package.  However, since you
already have one, you will have to replace it.  Command is rpm -ivh xxx.rpm
replacepkgs . Then, update your portmap.   Insert the REDHAT CDROM #1 and
mount it by mount /mnt/cdrom . Switch to RedHat directory and to RPMS.
Since you already have the old portmap, and you are updating, the command
will be rpm -Uvh xxx..rpm   (remember, xxx is for the file name ;-))

Now, last but not list, you run ntsysv which will bring up the gui dialog
box for process schedule.  The same one you saw during installation.  Just
put a * or check on the portmap and then reboot.   That's it!

If you are still having problem, possibly your X server need proper
configuration, check all the networking configuration as CDE kinda picky
about it.  Hope this helps somebody at least I know I would really
appreciate a post like this at the right time ;-))

Thanks to all who helped me out.

Later

1. REDHAT 5.0+Tritral CDE--->>weird login problem

Hello,

  I didn't see it in your post, but I assume that you downloaded
and installed the CDE "patches" AFTER you installed Redhat 5.0 and
CDE?

  Also, I had some problems with CDE, but it was due to my carelessness.
I had installed Lesstif including the Lesstif window manager after I
instaled CDE. This screwed up mwm (Motif Window Manager) to the point
where CDE wouldn't run. I uninstalled it and everything was fine.

Good Luck!
