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: Octane 1.5 + Irix 6.5.26 + Wacom (sharing a great feed back)

as for the tablet disconnecting itself - never happened here on any generation. perhaps the cable is damaged - or if it's a serial one - the power supply on the way out? also in irix i've always used the wacom-provided driver, never the one that ships with discreet gear (wacom one works for that as...

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.

Re: Newbee needs help with error message...

Are you able to boot this machine at all?
If you are and out of interest, what does /etc/fstab say?
