Dead, as in braindead. I have applied several pathces that came from IBM
defect support to fix various cu and uucp problems and slip problems. Now,
guess what happens - every other way of accessing tty's is dead. Including
gettys's and ate. The specific PIF# was U402532 - did that patch break
anyone else's ate??? Please tell me.... I can't get my slip line up because
that patch seems to have broke my ATE access to my RS6K at work - due to
another bug in slattach (the one that causes multiple slip interfaces to
RANDOMLY attach to a tty assigned for slip - otherwise known as, it picks
a slip interface randomly and if it is the wrong one, the mahcine just
discards all pakcets). Basically, I get a modem carrier (via audio) and
then it just dies andhangs up the phone. CU also does the same thing with
a "rec'd carrier lost" or "dead" or something like that. I am only now able
to get on to post news via my ancient Sun 3/60. The only reliable machine
I have ever owned. Myabe I'll just buy a Sparc...IBM, are you listening...
I think not. YES - THIS IS A FLAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'M SICK OF THIS!!!!!!!
SLIP dies after 12 to 24 hours....depending upon how much data you send
Async dies after 5 minutes at high bps
Pathces kill things that worked before....You know the story.
Please, someone, help me. This is getting crazy. My SE is probably being
driven insane by my 1:00AM calls on Sundays or Saturdays (not that I'd spare
him to fix my problem...but I wan't it fixed!!!!)
Is there anyone from IBM here on the net?????? That can help?????
Has anyone on this group signed off on IBM and gone to Sun? I would like to
hear from you. Maybe then I can convince my management that that is what
we should do as well. It may not be a bad idea. (As my Sun 3/60 is the
only reliable machine I've got at home now. Or at work, for that matter!)
