CDROM desktop icon gone missing. 6.5.27

Post by gdougla » Sat, 26 Feb 2005 06:41:33

Subject says it all, mostly. O2 R12K-400, running Irix 6.5.27, fresh
Also not visible in 6.5.25. CDROM drive is not visible from the
"Removable Media Manager" in the
System manager,either. After a 2 minute pause it says "There are no
removable media
devices detected on this system"
But, the CDROM drive does get mounted automatically, under /CDROM

Same thing happens with a LS-120 superdrive. It gets mounted by Irix
under /ls120
But, no desktop floppy drive icon is visible.

Supportfolio knowledgebase says:
"To put the cdrom, disks etc back on the desktop:
As root:
/usr/sysadm/bin/sabgicons | \
/usr/sbin/bgicons -icondb
${HOME}/.desktophost/`hostname`/SysadmBgIconDB \
-icondir ${HOME}/.desktophost/`hostname`/Icons

Error: //.desktophost/IRIS/Icons does not exist.

Any help would be appreciated.

1. Installation of IRIX 6.5.27 from a Powermac cdrom.....can I do it?

2. How to get Secure NFS & Kerberos running in IRIX 6.5.27?

I'm currently struggling with getting Secure NFS & Kerberos running in
a nice and integrated way on a SGI IRIX 6.5.27 system but I'm running
into a couple of annoying misfeatures:

I have /etc/krb5.conf and /etc/krb5/krb5.keytab set up and I can
authenticate against the KDC correctly.

However, I'm not getting the SSH daemon to authenticate against
Kerberos - so I'm wonder what's the way one is supposed to do this
on IRIX systems? My first thought was that one should use PAM but the
pam_krb5 man page warns that it uses it's own Kerberos libraries and
thus doesn't work together with the RPCSEC_GSS system that Secure NFS
use... Compile your own SSH daemon?

How have _you_ folks solved this issue?

Another problem is that even though autofs successfully mounts the
filesystems in question and I can access them (after performing a "kinit"
manually) things only work to a certain degree - apparently "vi" has
problems writing to files - it only creates an empty file and warns
that it couldn't write any characters to the file!

However, if I type "cat >FILENAME" and enter the same information as
I tried in "vi" it works! - Any idea what could be the cause?

No errors in the NFS servers log files.

The NFS Server is a Sun Solaris 9 system.
