One of the four WD1200JB disks on my Dell CERC ATA RAID controller died and I'm trying to get at the controller remotely. Previously, I used:
http://people.freebsd.org/~emoore/MegaRAID_SCSI/UserInterfaceGUI/MegaMGR.tgz which replicates the BIOS-level text interface to the controller: create/destroy arrays, silence alarm (!), rebuild array... I used it at the system text console, which does not emulate a vt100. It's very convenient because I don't shutdown the system as I do with the boot-time BIOS utility. I'm currently remote and getting into the box remotely using xterm or rxvt. When I startup MEGAMGR, the text is briefly readable then gets turned into something that looks like PC-line-drawing characters or other unreadable trash. Thus, this cool utility is unavailable to me remotely. Even when I'm home, this box lives in the basement and I'd prefer to have a network-aware way to talk to it -- that I can read :-). I'm guessing it's using various PC-style Console characters and line drawing chars that are not present on xterm nor rxvt. Is there some kind of terminal I can use which does emulate the console behavior (is this termcap's "at386" or something)? Or is it fonts/charsets I don't have? I looked in ports but didn't see anything which sounded relevant. I just got a little success by cruising the termcap file and selecting one which said it didn't do the pseudographics, from within my xterm: setenv TERM vt100-nac It kinda works but it's a little ugly and still difficult to read for using such a powerful/dangerous tool. Suggestions welcomed. Thanks. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
