evainfo needs libIO.sl

I just downloaded "evainfo", but when trying to execute it, I get the error saying:

evainfo -h
/usr/lib/dld.sl: Can't open shared library: /usr/lib/libIO.sl
/usr/lib/dld.sl: No such file or directory

Can anyone tell me which patch or software needs to be installed to supply this shared library?

Hi Joe,

Which operating system are you trying to run evainfo on ?

Maybe this will help:


It looks like it should be included on HP-UX... You're not using the Itanium version of evainfo on a PA-RISC box are you ?

Re: evainfo needs libIO.sl

I am seeing this as well. I was told that the 11.31 version of evainfo would work on 11.23 (itanium), but I receive the same error message.

Re: evainfo needs libIO.sl

attached is an older version of evainfo which works without the libIO.sl on PA-RISC systems.

Or if installed use vxdmpinq, e.g.:

# /etc/vx/diag.d/vxdmpinq -e 1 -p 131 /dev/rdisk/disk32
