4 mm boot tape for DECstation (Ultrix 4.2a)

Post by Thomas » Sat, 29 Aug 1992 06:44:23



   Greeting:

      Does anyone success to create 4 mm boot/supported/unsuppted tape for
      DECstaion from Ultrix 4.2a  TK 50 tapes  ?
      I tried to create the 4 mm boot/supported/unsuppted tapes to
      install our DECstations.  Any help/hint/script are appreciated !
      Thank you !

 
 
 

1. Can't get Term to run on Decstation 5000 w/ AFS, Ultrix 4.2A

I am trying to get Term to work between a Decstation 5000/25 (Ultrix 4.2A)
and my linux box at home (APR 486DX/33).  The linux end checks out fine
with 'test' and 'linecheck'.   'linecheck' seemed to work okay from the 5000,
using kermit for communications.

I am compiling with gcc 2.2.2 on the 5000.  When I start 'test' on the
5000, the following pops up on the console:

        afs_makenode: not supporting mode=49152 in AFS
        afs_makenode: not supporting mode=49152 in AFS

Then if I try to run any of the other programs, they don't seem to have
anything to connect to.  For example,

(after starting 'test' from another xterm...)
% trsh
Connect: No such file or directory
% txconn
Xconn bound to screen 9
:9
Connect: No such file or directory

Is there any hope for term 1.07 with Ultrix/AFS, or should I try barking
up another tree?

Thanks for any help you can give.

The top of the Makefile I am using is:
#
# Term program makefile.
# valids targets are:
#       all term linecheck test tags clean install realclean ${PROGS}
PROG=term

# AIX: replace CC with this line...
