Re: X-server can not be started

Hmmm - you can copy dlkm to dlkm.new and dlkm.vmunix.prev to dlkm.

What happns when you repeat:
isl> hpux -is /stand/vmunix
and switch to 2 and 3 again?

I copied dlkm (-r) to new and then dlkm.vmunix.prev to dlkm.

reboot -> same error

 

isl> hpux -is /stand/vmunix

init 2  ($TERM= unknown)

init 3  ($TERM= unknown).

Re: X-server can not be started

One suggestion:

Use 'setparms initial' to re-define network, hostname, ...

See 'man 'setparms' and read which informations you need when you run the command.

Re: X-server can not be started

Hello Mati,

 

I followed your suggestion and use the set_parms to reset (to the same parameters) the hostname, ip address and subnetmusk.

Still, same error message is received.

I also checked /etc/rc.config.d/cde and it was match to other system I compared with.

 

I guess we declare it an unsolved problem.

Re: X-server can not be started

I would like to note that it is possible to remote connected the machine via Exceed. Then, the value TERM is properly set (dtterm).

Re: X-server can not be started

The $TERM=unknown appears only when I echo to $TERM.

The following messages appear after the system is brought up, when I login to the root user (on the screen that connected to the HP machine):

 

" Type ITE_x80y24 unknown "

" The value TERM has been set to unknown "

Re: X-server can not be started

Type ITE_x80y24 unknown

 

Not really a problem. The VGA screen is now used as a text console, hence this problem. You may consider to do an "export TERM=xterm" for example. But when you changed the IP address of this server, how did you do this? Using "set_parms"? Does "nslookup <your_host_name>" work???  I would now run "dr_dt" and let this tool check your system.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: X-server can not be started

Hello,

 

>You may consider to do an "export TERM=xterm" for example

Already done - no effect.

 

>But when you changed the IP address of this server, how did you do this? Using "set_parms"?

Yes

 

>Does "nslookup <your_host_name>" work???

It works,

 

Name: host_name

Address: ip_address

 

>I would now run "dr_dt" and let this tool check your system.

Done:

0 error message

4 warnning messages

Where do I find the warnning messages?

Re: X-server can not be started

The warning messages of dr_dt should have been displayed on the same terminal/console you used to run the command. However, they might have scrolled off too fast.

 

So, run dr_dt again, directing its output to a file this time:

dr_dt >/tmp/dr_dt.out

 Once it completes, you can view the output with:

more /tmp/dr_dt.out

 (When viewing the file with "more", use the space key or Enter to move forwards in the file, or the "b" key to move backwards. Return to the command prompt with the "q" key.)

 

The warnings may include multiple lines. Each warning will have "WARNING:" at the beginning of its first line.

Re: X-server can not be started

Hi Matti,

 

I run it and these are the results:

 

1. the file /var/adm/inetd.sec is not exsit. I could not find it on other B. 11.11 OS but only on B.10.20

OS.

 

2. the directory / is not properly configured. The current configuration is:

Permissions = drwxr-xr-x

owner = root

group = root

For HP CDE to function correctly, it should be a directory with the following configuration:

 

Permissions = dr-xr-xr-x

owner = root

group = sys

 

3. Same as the above for /etc/hosts permissions. (but it doen't say that it concern to the CDE).

 

 In addition I attached the screen results (as a screen shot).

 

BR,

Yali

Re: X-server can not be started

No video card present?

This could be a good reason.


I assume this is a C8000 workstation.


Look at the rear side if you can see a VGA connector.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

But it could be a problem with the graphics hardware.



Can you attach

Hope this helps!

Well, this doesn't exist at my maschine either.
Maybe you can copy it from: /usr/newconfig/var/adm/inetd but there's nothing important inside (security restrictions).

I only have DVI connectors - which graphics card do you have inside?
Can you give us 'graphinfo'?

graphinfo command brings the follow:
