xwd hangs on Indigo-2 Solid Impact running IRIX 5.3

xwd hangs on Indigo-2 Solid Impact running IRIX 5.3

Post by david.floy » Sun, 25 Jul 2004 02:35:06


We have 4 Indigo-2 Systems configured as follows:

250 MHz IP22 Processor
MIPS R4000 Floating Point Coprocessor Rev 0.0
MIPS R4400 Processor Rev 6.0
Main Memory: 192 Mbytes
Graphics Board: Solid Impact

uname: IRIX 5.3 12201932 IP22 mips
swap: 256MB (~255MB available)

If I attempt to capture an X-Window via "xwd", it always seems to hang
and never complete.

The following are the last few lines from using "par -SS -s -r -i -l
xwd" and it hangs with the select() call.

800mS xwd( 1632): read(3, <01 00 00 26 00 00 00 03 00 00 00 20
00 01 00 01>..., 32) = 32
800mS xwd( 1632): read(3, <00 e2 80 33 00 00 00 00 00 00 f8 20>,
12) = 12
800mS xwd( 1632): read(3, <01 08 00 27 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 22
00 00 00 00>..., 32) = 32
800mS xwd( 1632): write(3, <28 32 00 04 03 40 00 04 00 00 00 22
00 00 00 00>, 16) = 16
800mS xwd( 1632): read(3, 0x7fffad54, 32) errno = 11 (Resource
temporarily unavailable)
879mS xwd( 1632): read(3, <01 08 00 29 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 e8
00 00 00 07>..., 32) = 32
879mS xwd( 1632): write(3, <49 02 00 05 03 40 00 04 00 00 00 00
03 27 02 ee>..., 20) = 20
879mS xwd( 1632): read(3, 0x7fffad58, 32) errno = 11 (Resource
temporarily unavailable)
879ms xwd( 1632): select(4, IN:set=3 OUT:set=3, 0, 0, 0) = 1
939mS xwd( 1632): read(3, <01 08 00 2a 00 02 4f cc 00 00 00 20
10 65 8c 50>..., 32) = 32
939mS xwd( 1632): brk(0x10096000) OK
939mS xwd( 1632): recvmsg(3, 0x7fffac48, 0) = 8080
960mS xwd( 1632): recvmsg(3, 0x7fffac48, 0) errno = 11 (Resource
temporarily unavailable)
960mS xwd( 1632): select(4, set=3, 0, 0, 0)

After fooling around with it for a while, I was able to get xwd to
return normally, but only when I utilize a very small window.

I was also able to sucessfully use "xwd -display ..." to display the
contents of the root window from one of our other systems.

I then attempted to use "xwd -display ..." on this same local machine,
but it hung up just like the other attempts.

The systems are patched up to Patch #3526 or so. I am not aware of a
patch that would resolve this issue.

The "xwd" command works fine on our other non-Solid Impact Indigo-2
systems running IRIX 5.3.

Any pointers would be appreciated.

Thanks.

1. WTB: IRIX 5.3 for IRIS Indigo R4400

2. Cannot resolve conflict when installing IRIX 5.3 on Indigo

Hello, I'm new to the SGI/IRIX world, so please bare with me. I came
across an Indigo with a password on the NVRAM, dead onboard battery,
and no hard drive. After resolving those issues, I'm attempting to
install IRIX 5.3. Following the instructions I've found on usenet, I
have ran fx.IP12, exercised the drive, and had it auto partition the
drive.

The Indigo's model is CMNB003 if that helps.

I loaded sash.IP12 and have begun the installation.

Everything is fine up to this point. When I run the install option
there is a conflict that I cannot resolve, namely 'eoe'. Regardless of
the option I choose, remove 'eoe', or install it again, the conflict is
not resolved.

I unfortunately am not at the machine at this time, however I do have
two questions.

1. How can I get the OS version (sub-version) that I am attempting to
install? The CD I'm using is a cd-r copy from the original disc, which
was lost years ago, thus the label mentions nothing specific, just
'IRIX 5.3'.

2. Do I need to patch any of the install utilities before attempting to
install? That's all I have come up with as to why the conflict is not
being resolved.

Thanks for any suggestions, Jim.
