Posix installtion

Hi,

I have installed POSIX software. But this time I got a message that tells me that the installation is not finished.

The software was installed via OpenVMS CD 6.2 (binaries). The verison number is: 2.0.

If I try to install the software from layered product I got a error messages.

Any comments??

PS:
I want to start ucx (TCP/IP) automatically each time I boot the system. I could not find the systartup.com, and startup.com should not be edited. Any suggestions??

Re: Posix installtion

Hi,

use sys$manager:systartup_vms.com.
And what error you get?

Re: Posix installtion

Hi,

Thanks. If I run posix command I got an error message that says that the posix initialization not completed - see system manager.

When I installed the software the script told me to add two new values with sysgen.

gblpages add ##
gblsections add ##

But these commands does not exist. Is it better to run autogen?

Thanks again

Re: Posix installtion

In SYS$SYSTEM:MODPARAMS.DAT

ADD_GBLPAGES = xxx
ADD_GBLSECTIONS = yyy

where xxx, yyy are the values specified during the installation. Then

@SYS$UPDATE:AUTOGEN GETDATA SETPARAMS

check the report afterwards for problems.

Re: Posix installtion

Re: POSIX: Better yet, follow the directions
in:

cd_rom:[POSIX020.DOCUMENTATION]INST_SYS_MAN_GUIDE.TXT

(or .PS) which mentions:

SYS$MANAGER:POSIX$CONFIG.COM

which looks as if it does all the work for
these (and some other) SYSGEN parameters.

Also, as it says, you need to add to the
system start-up stuff:

@ SYS$STARTUP:POSIX$STARTUP.COM

Running the IVP might also be educational:

@ SYS$TEST:POSIX$IVP

[...]

POSIX for OpenVMS V2.0 IVP completed successfully

GIMP $ posix
psx> uname -a
POSIX_for_OpenVMS_VAX GIMP V2.0(V2.0) V6.2 VAX_4000-200 VAX

Who could ask for more?

Wow. I haven't looked at this stuff since it
was new (1994). Wheee.

Re: Posix installtion

Hi,
Thanks. When I execute
@ SYS$TEST:POSIX$IVP

I got following messages:

"System disk or posix for OpenVMS 2.0 container Bind or both are not setup.


Posix for OpenVMS V2.0 IVP have failed"


Any comments. Please
