mDV / channel issues
Fri Jan 25 21:30:00 2008
As it turns out, the residual problem with the mDV stuff was not to do with our button pushing episode but instead fallout from the 'turning off of the computers' during the water leak caused by the rain and construction.
fb0 (the FrameBuilder) is not mounted to the control machines via vfstab; it does not remount on bootup. I originally did this because Ben Johnson and Dave Barker had warned me that during a power outage, fb0 may not come up right away. This could make the control room machines hang up for awhile. I elected to have the mount be by hand.
So the thing to do is to put the mount command into the cold start procedures (
). Its in an old elog entry of mine from Feb '07.
