#208 fixed graphical login doesn't deal well with being unplugged geofft

Reported by geofft, 15 years ago.


There are a couple of problems with machines that don't have network access and try to do network login.

First, there's no clear error explaining what's wrong when the machine isn't connected and you try to log in. One possible solution to this is a PAM module that tries to access the network and displays a fatal message if it can't, although we'd have to be very sure it doesn't have any false positives. (For instance, if some but not all of the Kerberos servers go down, we shouldn't deny login.)

Second, if the machine goes offline, it's possible for an AFS access to time out and make the AFS client sad until "fs checks" is run. Other services like zhm can also become unhappy. Again, we could hack a PAM module to address this; there might be cleaner solutions. An Xsession.d script, for instance, is slightly cleaner.

aseering on testers@:


The DebAthena computer adjacent to M12-182-4 (it doesn't have a label

and I can't log in to check) is currently sad. Its Ethernet cable was unplugged when I walked up to it. I plugged it back in, and tried to log in; the login hung while trying to render my applications bar. I killed X (ctrl-alt-bksp); the machine is now sitting at a text console.

mitchb's reply:

You didn't try rebooting it? If the network cable has been out for a length of time, a whole bunch of things on the machine are going to have noticed (among them, AFS, zhm, syslogd, aptitude, etc.), and while they may recover given time, assuming that the machine will immediately be fine upon reinserting the cable is generally not accurate.

#209 fixed maple / java problem on 64 bit machines opolon

Reported by opolon, 15 years ago.


It looks like the 64bit JRE is not properly installed / linked, when using maple.

For instance, add java add maple maple -x returns: eval: 1: /mit/maple_v12.0/distrib/jre.X86_64_LINUX/bin/java: not found

Package: evolution-mapi
Description: Evolution extension for MS Exchange 2007 servers
A provider for Evolution that can connect to Exchange 2007 servers and 
also to Exchange 2003, 2000 and 5.5.

We should test this with the MIT Exchange server.
