Problems after upgrading to LPPC2000Q4

Problems after upgrading to LPPC2000Q4

Post by Steve Wilbu » Tue, 06 Mar 2001 15:29:57

The machine: Performa 6360, 88MB of ram, 256K L2 Cache, 9GB HD
The mission: Upgrade from LPPC 1999 Q3 to 2000 Q4

I'll spare the details - let it suffice to say I backed up /etc, /usr,
and /var to spare partitions, formatted /etc, /usr, and /var, installed
2000 Q4, and restored my settings from the spare partitions.


a).It can't seem to access the hardware clock on bootup.  I never had
any problems before.  Now when I reboot, I have to manually set the
clock.  Ideas?

b). named doesn't seem to want to start automatically.  I have to do it
manually with /etc/init.d/named and then it is fine.  I'd like to make
it work automatically.  

c). I am elated that FINALLY the console works with XDM on this
machine.  I'd be interested in getting XDM to work on client machines
(running MacX or eXodus or something).  I can get x programs like xterm
to work remotely by exporting the display, but I want XDMCP to work so
I can run the gnome environment remotely on my powerbook using MacX or
eXodus in rooted mode.  Ideas?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.....thanks in advance. (:


1. Informix problems afters Y2K Solaris 2.5 patch

Anyone experienced a simular problem? Any suggestions?
