I have a few machine ranging from 43P, 530, F40, F50,... P620, etc..
running various version of AIX, mostly 4.2.1 and 4.3.3. Problem I have
is that on an IBM 3153 terminal, setup for vt100 or even vt220
emulation, whenever I am logged in to the console, the console messages
However if I am NOT logged into the console, there seems to be a
staircasing effect, on the text. It seems like there is only a LF being
send instead of a LF/CR. This is very annoying since messages are all
garbled... The terminal has a translation feature to convert incoming
CR to CR/LF, but I am NOT receiving only a CR..., I am receiving only a
LF. I tried a few combinations of stty options, but can't seem to
change the behaviour.
It seems that the getty processes handles the port differently during
"login" than after I am logged in. When I used to use SCO Unix I
remember there was a file in /etc called gettydefs, which defined login
and post-logon tty properties. Is there something similar on AIX?
Consoles are mostly on tty0 on these machines, and they have the
original console cables from IBM, so it is NOT a cabling issue. They
work fine if someone is logged in...
