Thirdspace OVS coredumps

Unread postby whiter » Wed Aug 23, 2006 4:20 pm

I guess nobody uses Thirdspace OVS (Oracle Video Server) 5.0 overhere. But I'll have a go anyway.

I got 2 systems with the system set up. One running irix 6.5.14, the other 6.5.29.

Configurations are identical, except that the irix versions are different and first system uses a standard harddrive from the main system, where as the other one uses a lun from a TP9100 array for the Media Data Store.

The problem lies in initialising the MDS on the second system. When I try this I get this:

Code: Select all

ovs5@mina:~> mdsvolinit -s -t video
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
And when I try it from dbx I get a tiny bit more info:

Code: Select all

ovs5@mina:~> dbx ~ovs5/bin/mdsvolinit
dbx version 7.3.4 (86441_Nov11 MR) Nov 11 2002 11:31:55
Executable /usr/people/ovs5/bin/mdsvolinit
(dbx) run -s -t video
Process  3832 (mdsvolinit) started
Process  3832 Thread 0x10000 (mdsvolinit) stopped on signal SIGSEGV: Segmentation violation (default) at [__aio_closechk:109 +0xc,0xda2b294]
         Source (of /xlv46/6.5.29m/work/irix/lib/libc/libc_64_M4/aio/aio.c) not available for Process  3832
(dbx)
And then I'm lost.

:(
Shall I describe it to you? Or do you want me to get you a box?

right... I upgraded 6.5.29 to 6.5.30, and now I don't get the coredump anymore.

Not that it works now... but atleast I'm a step further

The documentation tells me that the 'domainname' needs to be set.

As far as I'm aware the result of the 'domainname' command is some kind of NIS thing. Is there a way to make 'domainname' give a result without enabling NIS ?
