Compaq streams failures r3.2v4.2

Compaq streams failures r3.2v4.2

Post by Fred N » Fri, 29 Aug 1997 04:00:00



Does someone know if more memory or a patch could solve the following
problem?

I have a Compaq ProSignia 300 (Pentium 120) that often (once a day to
once a week) runs out of 2048-byte dblks.  The dblk usage is normally
quite low, but it appears to go into some sort of panic and use them
all up.  We had a failure yesterday just after 3 PM and here's what
"netstat -m" currently shows:

I think the "Number of processors" above should really only be 1; don't
know why it shows 2.

1. Printing Problems in R3.2v4.2

I am running SCOR3.2v4.2 on a Compaq Proliant 4000 with dual P90's and a
couple of Corollary cards for point to point terminal connections.

The problem is this.  I have a Okidata 182 Turbo (Yeah, old, I know) set
up as a serial printer on one of the 8-port terminal concentrators
connected to the second Corollary card.  The device is then ttyb2.  The
problem is that I cannot get anything to print to the darned thing.

I know it is possible because we just moved the terminal concentrators
from an almost identical system (only difference being Compaq Proliant
4000 w/ dual P66's).  The systems are so identical that I have set them
up with all cards in both systems in the identical slots using the same
I/O addresses and everything.  The printer worked fine on the other
system.  I have disabled the getty process for the terminal and even set
it up as a printer in sysadmsh.  I can't even use the example: date >
/dev/ttyb2.  

I have followed all steps given in the SCO hardware book as well as
O'Reillys Essential System Admin and UNIX Power Tools.  HELP!!!!!!!

Thanks a million,
