glance installation causes core dump


hpux 11.23

Following these instructions:

nohup pfs_mountd &
nohup pfs_mount -o xlat=UNIX


#:pfs_mount -o xlat=UNIX /glance_B3693-13006.iso
ARIES32: Core file for PA32 application saved to /core.pfs_mount
Memory fault(coredump)
/#:rm /core.pfs_mount


Why is this happening, what can I do?

Re: glance installation causes core dump

The correct way of mounting the CD havig ISO image would be
# nohup pfs_mountd &
# nohup pfsd &
# pfs_mount -o xlat=unix /dev/rdsk/cXtYdZ
assuming /dev/rdsk/cXtYdZ acts as path of the ISO CD Image.

NOTE : You should use the raw device file i.e. rdsk and NOT dsk. If you use dsk by mistake or typo, you would end up with trouble using the pfs and cdrom.

Once the installation is done , do the following
# pfs_umount /

Subsequently, kill the following processes:
pfs_mountd ,pfsd, pfs_mountd.rpc pfsd.rpc using kill -9
Only then exit from you session.

Don't close you session until you are done with the whole process.

And just a note: pfs is VERY STRONGLY DISCOURAGED on 11i, especially 11.23. This code has become far too unstable at 11.00 and later to be used. Do not use an outdated recommendation from a 3rd party vendor. Mount your CD with the -o rr option.

The following worked:


pfs_mount -o xlat=unix glance_B3693-13006.iso /cdrom

Re: glance installation causes core dump


Another question, how do I install the software now that I got the iso file mounted?
How exactly do I run swinstall?

#:ll /cdrom/
