DIP problem: DIP creates bad lock file

DIP problem: DIP creates bad lock file

Post by Randall Re » Fri, 22 Jul 1994 00:46:44



It appears DIP 3.3.7 has a bug.  It creates a lock file in
/var/spool/uucp that has the wrong PID.  It should be the
PID of 'dip' but instead it puts a PID usually 1 less
than the dip PID.

Example:

dip PID = 7146
LCK..cua0 contains 7145

This will cause uucico to delete the lock file thinking it
is stale.   Then uucico can come in and interfere with the
SLIP connection.
To make things worse, uugetty would then try to reinitialize
the line after uucico finished ;-(

Is this fixed on a newer version of DIP ?

Software: Slackware 1.2, DIP 3.3.7, uugetty

I'm trying to beat the system by making my mouse and dip connection work
on my new linux installation.

I have a 2-button mouse. When I run startx my mouse is dead under the
"Microsoft" setting in Xconfig. I've read that "gpm" may be necessary, but
I may just buy a cheap 3-button.

I seem to be very close on my dynamic dip connection, but after the login
I don't seem to get the right $remote and $host values. I'm using the
example in "running linux" for my *.dip chat script. There has got to be
some little error in my "/etc/hosts" or "/etc/diphosts" files.

Can anyone work with me? I've read through the manuals and tried all the
combinations but I'm really stuck now. Thanks very much.
