  • 1. Write Error
    I am getting the following write errors. It causes the system to promptly take the mirror drive out of service. How can I ferret out (perhaps the bad sector on the drive) and fix this problem so I can re-attach the mirror? It seems the write error is only on slice0 not on slice1 where I have the swap. Thanks!

  • 4. Solaris 10 + inetd + TCP Wrappers
    Hi all I've got a V20Z running Solaris 10 and the UW imap server from the inetd restarter. However, I'm getting these messages occasionally: Oct 26 00:14:09 jessie imapd[28605]: [ID 140027 daemon.error] warning: can't verify hostname: gethostbyname(client-xx-xx-xx-xx.isp.net) failed Which looks, to me, like TCP wrappers stuff being generated for a non-matching forward/reverse DNS pair. My understanding was that the PARANOID setting in the TCP wrappers configuration files (hosts.allow) was what caused this to be checked. However, I have: imapd: ALL Which, I thought, wouldn't restrict in such a way. That seemed to be the case with Solaris 9 stuff. Anybody any ideas what i'm doing wrong? I've checked the man pages and the only work around I have at the moment (which seems to be working) is to use inetadm to disable tcp_wrappers for the affected service. Thanks in advance Ade
  • 5. Expanding a full D1000.
    Is there a recommended way to add space to a D1000 thats slots are full? I've read about daisy chaining the A1000s, but I haven't been able to find any information about D1000s hooking together. Would we have to buy 10 larger disks to replace the ones we have? That seems like a horrible idea. Has anyone run into this problem before? How did you solve it? Thanks for your help, Luke.

Greetings, hope this is the right place to post the question.

The machine is a PII vintage running Solaris 8 (06/00).
The problem is encountered with the web pages on www.wikidpedia.org,
after the site was upgraded last week.

Before that, they were displayed fine to me on Communicator 4.7 with
the fixed width font set to Times(Adobe) 12 & variable width font
Courier(Adobe) 12.
But now these pages are rendered with fonts that appear way too small
for my viewing, like Times(Adobe) 8 or smaller.

Have fiddled around with the relevant settings on the GUI at
[Edit]->[Preferences...]->[Appearance]->[Font]
But nothing happens after the pages are refreshed.

Also found from the HTML source that the font size is not hard-coded
into the pages.

So is there is a way to reclaim my favorite font sizes for these pages
without the need to upgrade the browser?
Or should I do a bit of tweaking to those CDE/Openwin resource
attributes?

Hope to do that with minimal impact on the OS/desktop environment.


Thanks.

Try seting the minimum font size to 10 (if you have that option).


Probably set using CSS.

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,



I'm using Netscape Communicator 4.79 under Solaris 10 with the Xorg
X server and can't seem to get my fonts to load with en.wikipdedia.org.


en.wikipedia.org does display fine with SUNWmozilla 1.7.
My guess is that it would also work with the mozilla 1.7 package for
Solaris 8 from blastwave.org.

Welcome to Microsoft's wonderful world of "use our web development tools 
and force everyone to use our browser"!

Try Mozilla or Firefox.   If they work, Microsoft will doubtless put 
some new feature in Front Page that will break them.

Thanks to all for the comments & suggestions.

Have tried these tricks one at a time but none is able to force
Netscape 4.7 to override the smallish fonts.
* Set variable/fixed width font size from 10 through 24.
* Use default fonts to override document-specified fonts.
* Set the CDE font resources for Netscape in ~/.Xdefaults. This only
affects the native text appearing on various Netscape GUI widgets like
the menus, control panels & etc. No effect on any input HTML documents.
* Reload the troublesome page and press stop almost immediately to get
the partially loaded page displayed in the desirable fonts with the
"Transfer Interrupted" message. Doesn't work for www.wikipedia.org,
though it did the trick for me on some other pages with smallish fonts.

Looks like I have no other option but to install Mozilla 1.7 together
with GNOME & co. :-(

The bad news is that the same wikipedia pages/articles are rendered
fine with Times 12 & 14 by Netscape 4.7 on Win98. Oh dear ...

You don't need the entire Mozilla, just Firefox.
No big deal thanks to Blastwave.

 http://www.**--****.com/ 
 http://www.**--****.com/ 

You just need to install pkg-get from blastwave and then run

pkg-get install firefox

it will install everything you need in /opt/csw
(just add /opt/csw/bin to your path)

Just make sure you have enough disk space for /opt/csw
If you're short of disk space, create the csw directory on
a larger filesystem and do a loopback mount in /opt
See "man lofs"

Netscape must be showing it in 5-point -- or smaller.

Any suggestions?


(Any other gui-based browsers (I already use lynx, non-gui),
  especially any that, like lynx, provide::

  .  bookmarks kept in ascii-files (ie, editable by me with vi, ...)

  .  most browsing done via fingers on keyboard (like lynx),
          so don't have to keep moving mouse for everything.

).

2.netscape 7 for solaris x86

Does anybody have a link where I could download Netscape 7 for Solaris 9

3.Using _good_ fonts in Linux Netscape?

We have been considering ditching Windows on the desktop
and replacing it with Linux.  The most serious problem IMO
are the fonts.  Why is it that Linux fonts suck?

The Linux version of Netscape, for instance doesn't even
qualify as barely readable. Anyway, I purchased the Ximian package
which goes a long way to make the Linux desktop experience
remotely (but getting better) similar to Windows or the Mac.

How come the fonts that show up in Galeon's "Preferences" menu
are different from the ones in Netscape's "Preferences"?

Can you imagine a Mac or Windows machine where every application
has its own private fonts?

--END OF FLAME--

Can someone please let me know if it is possible -and how-
to use the good fonts that come with Ximian/Galeon in
Netscape?

TIA,

-Ramon F. Herrera

5.netscape 7.76 font warning message popup

Hi,

I launch netscape and browse to a webpage that contains a Java applet.  I
get the following netscape popup and my Java applet runs normally:-

Netscape: subprocess diagnostics (stdout/stderr)
Warning: Cannot convert string
"-monotype-arial-regular-r-normal--*-140-*-*-p-*-iso8859-1" to type
FontStruct

How can i stop this popup?  I'm not interested in fixing the Java code but
would like, maybe, a command line option or envronment variable to supress
this message.

thanks.
