back on new Rossa from Xi computing

  1. switched to using Display Port for video; this works. The DVi, HDMI, VGA ports are connected to the motherboard rather than the video card, so they are not active.
  2. runs super slow w/ SL 7.6; maybe some service is running after startup?
  3. install repos and update according to LLO CDS wiki
  4. add controls user and group according to LLO wiki
  5. remove gstreamer ugly because it breaks yum update
  6. run 'yum update --skip-broken' because GDS doesn't work
  7. turn off old selinux stuff
  8. modify fstab to get NFS

Next:

  1. finish mounting
  2. xfce
  3. figure out why the LLO install instructions can't install any CDS software (e.g. root, DTT, etc)

Update: Sun Nov 3 18:08:48 2019

  1. moved the SL7 fresh install repos back into etc/yum.repos.d/. The LLO instructions has me remove them, but the LLO supplied repos are no good for standard apps. After putting these back was able to install standard apps (terminator, root, diaggui)
  2. copied over /etc/fstab lines from pianosa sothat the NFS mounts work correctly
  3. added symlinks so that the NFS dirs mount in the right dirs
  4. symlink libsasl2.so.3 -> libsasl2.so.2 and now DTT runs and can get data now and in the past
  5. install XFCE
  6. sitemap / MEDM works
  7.  Did "sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libXm.so.4 /usr/lib64/libXm.so.3" to enable StripTool.

Update: Fri Nov 15 00:00:26 2019:

  1. random hanging of machine while doing various window moving or workspace switching
  2. turned off power management in XFCE
  3. turned off power management on monitor
  4. disabled SELINUX
  5. firewalld was already off
  6. installed most, pdftk, htop, glances, qtgrace, lesstif
  7. dataviewer now works and QTgrace is much nicer than XMGrace
