Y2K (P008) patch installation problem
Posted on 2004-08-06
I am trying to install patches on Unix MP system V Release 4 Motorola m88k version R40V4. The patches are P008 patch and FIX_BOS980702 (these fixes y2k prob). After installing FIX patch system tries to rebuild the kernel (etc/buildsys). However it can not complete in success.
While installing P008 (patch cluster):
/etc/master.d/pipefs: cannot open
pathname does not exist.
cannot access /etc/init.d/lockport: no such file or directory.
While installing y2k patch (FIX_BOS980702):
/usr/sbin/mkboot: /boot/CIO: not precessed, cannot open /etc/master.d/cio
/usr/sbin/mkboot: /boot/CMMUCTL_CPI: not precessed, cannot open /etc/master.d/cmmuctl_cpi
/usr/sbin/mkboot: /boot/CMMUCTL_UNI: not precessed, cannot open /etc/master.d/cmmuctl_uni
/usr/sbin/mkboot: /boot/IEN: not precessed, cannot open /etc/master.d/ien
/usr/sbin/mkboot: /boot/PIPEFS: not precessed, cannot open /etc/master.d/pipefs
warning: Parameter STARVESIN multiply defined
warning: Parameter SWITCHSIN multiply defined duplicate parameters encountered(2); aborting
buildsys: ERROR: cunix failed
auto-configuration failed, consult a system adminsitrator
I am able to eliminate "can not open" errors by removing corresponding file from /boot directory. Also I have eliminated STARVESIN, SWITCHSIN errors by undefining these variables from /etc/master.d files.
However it copntinues to give other errors concerning duplicate variables of "conslogging" etc.
I have tried to "-t" parameter of cunix to give "-a" parameter to "ld".
This would do suspend errors concernign multiply defined variable.
However, it did not work.
