#232 wontfix Provide a supportable Ubuntu configuration of TSM wdc

Reported by wdc, 15 years ago.

Description

Alexp has done the work of figuring out how to get TSM 5.4 working under Intrepid (including the dsmj GUI by utilizing the sun-java-6 JRE.)

Temporary documentation on getting this to work is pointed to by Hermes at:  https://web.mit.edu/sgi-desktop1/tsmdoc/article.html

There are several opportunities for improvement here:

  1. Put the documentation in a more "real" place.
  2. Refine the package to be a bona fide .deb instead of an alien.

IBM is coming out with a new version of TSM and this represents an opportunity to lobby for some important improvements:

1, Get rid of use of ksh since bash is canon nowadays, and the ksh EULA is really nasty.

  1. Get TSM fully functional on the platform's NATIVE java runtime environment (preferably OpenJava?-6), rather than requiring TSM users to to go to www.sun.com, download a jre, click on a messy EULA, and then fiddle with the PATH.
  2. Embrace Ubuntu as a supported platform.
  3. Provide a simple installer akin to what is on offer for Windows or Mac.
  4. Eliminate the need to hand-create the dsm.sys and dsm.opt files. (The installer should offer a gui setup for those.)
  5. Create sensible interfaces to upstart that are appropriately installed by the installer.
  6. Provide a "dry run" option that would help people see what files would or would not be backed up with a particular command or scheduled run.
  7. Oh yes, I almost forgot, The TSM command line program should

use that ioctl to learn with the erase character is rather than hard coding the delete key. The erase character should be the upstream default, not requiring hand-tooling to specially fix for TSM.

#233 wontfix 3D apps mostly suck on 745s with radeon drivers jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 15 years ago.

Description

See ATN-57 (attached in PDF) for context. 3D applications have window refresh issues.

Gaussian, ac3d and Maya are much more usable under Jaunty than Intrepid, but Gaussian still complains in the console.

The 755s (with radeonhd) are fine, and the 760 is fine with the radeon driver. This really only affects the 745s. I don't want to get in the business of forcing fglrx on one type of hardware only.

I propose we document the brokenness and encourage people to use a 755/760.
