Re: Computer with a real serial port

I have two nice little 'SHUTTLE' boxes that come with real serial, very small base units. Can't recall the exact model, CPU is i3 with 16GB, SSD all of which I had to buy separately. They are mounted on my wall and I RDP into them, although you can use them directly with keyboard/mouse and they have...

If you have a web application running on a server, that just does DB serving and web pages, therefore no outgoing 'browsing', could this be affected do we know?

Re: Newbee needs help with error message...

Well, still saying the disk is bad, but to keep you entertained are you able to run the network setup from the tool chest?

Depending on your version of IRIX, this can be done through SYSTEM --> SYSTEM MANGER and then Networking & Connectivity. I can't recall earlier versions tbh.

Re: Newbee needs help with error message...

Well that rules out any other drives.

Also lack of DNS resolvers explains a bit of slowness, but why no resolv? Is this a new install? What's the history in this machine?

Re: Newbee needs help with error message...

This isn't a simple Windows machine I'm afraid, you have a learning curve to overcome. You only have one physical 'HD' so unless another external drive was mounted, that's your lot. So I suggest you type "cat /etc/fstab" and check if it tried to mount anything else. Also, lets try the orig...

Re: Newbee needs help with error message...

You should print your hinv here, I suspect you have two drives, and /usr/etc/fam is a mounted device and it's drive in the middle tray that's died. Just a guess though. Also, check /etc/fastab to see what's being mounted?

I may be way off, but that's my guess.
