Re: vty3 and 4.0 snap 080799

1999-08-13 Thread Michael A. Endsley

Brian (and others).
You are correct about the installation. I had a 3.0-R slice, and somehow
corrupted it. I decided I would go to 4.0 and follow current. That is when
the problem started. However:
very early this morning, I got 3.2 (19990812) floppies and did a ftp
installation with those. The "ppp" worked great on ALT-F3! I now have a
base installation and kernel source for compiling.
I won't do a full install of 3.2 because I want to follow current.
If I can provide any other information about what is not working on 4.0,
let me know. I will do whatever to get this working :)
Mike

Errum, if this is a re-install, I may see what the problem is.  I 
changed sysinstall to run ``ppp install'' as sysinstall now writes an 
``install'' label into ppp.conf.  Might it be the case that a 
reinstall doesn't add the ``install'' label ?

Get a load of this: the holographic shell is on ttyv3, which is
accessed by pressing Alt-F4, as I already told you but you
conveniently ignored. Now come back when you have a clue.

Lets just use alt-f3.

During a fresh install the system uses vty0. When the time comes to finally
start downloading (using FTP), a screen is shown telling the person to go
use the ALT-F3 keys (vty2) to use term. For me, that key combination is not

I will just download the floppies from a later date (19990808-11).

Use alt-F4 for the shell during install.

vty0 - alt-F1 [Install]
vty1 - alt-F2 [Debug]
vty2 - alt-f3 [Inactive]
vty3 - alt-F4 [Shell]

PrtScr will cycle through all available vty's.

Re: vty3 and 4.0 snap 080799

1999-08-11 Thread mand

I just downloaded the latest snap floppies (19990811), and tried installing
again.
My original post (as shown) was/is correct!
Under the "options" screen to set the media type, I choose
ftp...(4.0-current).
After typing the ip address, host name, etc, I then go through the steps
for ppp (username, password, etc). After typing the phone number to my ISP,
I get the message that ppp is started on VTY3 (type ALT-F3). It is at this
screen that VTY3 (or ALT-F3) is not active/available! The only other vty
that is available is vty1 (alt-f2) for monitoring.
BTW- this last time, I used the "CLI" screen to configure my pnp modem in
case that would help. It didn't !

Thanks again,
Mike

I should have also stated that I tried all the other "F" keys also.
The only vty that is available/active is vty1 for debugging. Every other
F-key gets the "beep".

The shell is not started until after the install starts, ie when 
the ftp connects (the dists start getting untarred.)

Well, something is wrong with what I am trying to say :)
After entering the phone number to my ISP, the message screen pops up
saying "...type ALT-F3..." to go to that vty. A person is supposed to go to
that vty and then either type "dial" or "term".
It is at this time that the vty (alt-f3) is not active/available! In other
words, how do I type "dial" or "term" if I can't get to that vty?
HTH,

It sounds like ppp is simply exiting immediately.  I'll turn debugging
on and give it a shot myself; perhaps somebody broke something.
