Abstracts and ordering information areavailable from the redbooks homepage <>. (See Question 6.09 also.) Computer bookstores often carry many of the following: "Power RISC System/6000: Concepts, Facilities, Architecture", Chakravarty McGraw-Hill ISBN 0070110476 "PowerPC: Concepts, Facilities, Architecture", Chakravarty/Cannon McGraw-Hill ISBN 0070111928 "The Advanced Programmer's Guide to AIX 3.x", Colledge McGraw-Hill ISBN 007707663X "AIX Companion" , Cohn Prentice-Hall ISBN 0132912201 "AIX for RS/6000: System & Administration Guide", DeRoest McGraw-Hill ISBN 0070364397 "A Guide to AIX 3.2", Franklin Metro-Info Systems 05/1993 "IBM RS6000 AIX System Administration", Hollicker Prentice-Hall ISBN 0134526163 "IBM RISC SYSTEM/6000 - A Business Perspective", Hoskins John Wiley & Sons ISBN 0471599352 "The Advanced Programmer's Guide to AIX 3.x", Phil Colledge McGraw-Hill, 1994, ISBN: 0-07-707663-x "AIX Performance Tuning", Frank Waters Prentice-Hall 1996 ISBN 0-13-386707-2 "The AIX Survival Guide", Andreas Siegert Addison-Wesley 1996 ISBN 1-201-59388-2
Subject: 6.06: Some acronyms APAR - Authorized Program Analysis Report Created internaly by a systems programmer to solve a code bug. BOS - Base Operating System DCR - design change request Someone asked to change something. LPP - Licensed Program Product ODM - Object Data Manager Don't touch until you grok it. PRPQ - programming request for price quotation Essentialy, a program that is not available off-the-shelf. (e.g. HACMP started as a PRPQ, you could not order HACMP, but you could ask IBM for a highly-available solution) PTF - Program Temporary Fix Temporary ? Yes! Read "The Tao of Computing". SMIT - System Management Interface Tool SMITTY - SMIT, tty interface, no bells, no whistles. "alias smit=smitty" Y2K - Done. Total non-event.
Subject: 6.07: How do I get this by mailserver or ftp? Since the articles are crossposted to news.answers, any archive carrying that newsgroup will also have these articles. In particular, try ftp'ing to and checking the directory pub/usenet/news.answers. This FAQ is archived as "aix-faq/part[12345]". The FAQ is also availible via email using the address two examples of how you might use this from a UNIX prompt follow: echo help | mail echo send usenet/news.answers/aix-faq/part1 | mail

Subject: 6.09: IBM AIX documentation on the WWW. <> contains links to IBM documentation, this includes links to the redbooks site (how to documents) as well as links to the AIX 4.3 manuals.
Subject: 6.10: Comp.unix.aix archive availible on the WWW Michael Staats & Fred Hucht have informed me that a searchable archive of comp.unix.aix is availible at: <http://www.thp.Uni-Duisburg.DE/cuaix/cuaix.html>.
Subject: 6.11: How can I access the comp.unix.aix newsgroup via email (or Web)? From: Ciaran Deignan <> It is possible to get "digests" of the AIX newsgroup by email. Each digest contains a summary (just the subject lines from each post) plus the contents of a series of news articles posted to the newsgroup. Each digest is about 800 lines long, and the newsgroup typically generates 5 digest mails per day. To get these digests, you have to subscribe to a mailing list. Send an email to the address, and put the text "subscribe aix-digest" in the body of the message. [Editor's note: The above address does not appear to work any longer, if anyone knows of a functional equivalent please drop me a note.] It is equally possible to post articles to the newsgroup via email. Any mail sent to the address will be forwarded to the comp.unix.aix newsgroup. These services are provided by Doug Sewell <>.

Ephraim Vider, original author -- Feb 10, 1993 You can set pswrap up to use either the accounting file specified in /etc/qconfig (which means that you need to get your data from 'pac') or you can comment out the #define WANT_PAC line and then the accounting data will only go into the ACCTFILE.

It is provided without warrantee, or support. The syntax of the command is: setrts tty [tty [tty [...]]] The program will loop through each tty provided on the command line, and turn on the 'rts' line discipline. The program does not require that the Carrier Detect signal be held high to keep the serial device from blocking on the attempt to open it. The program works for all valid ttys. BUGS: None that are known; however, using the program to set 'ptys' may cause the 'pty' to become unusable. This program was written by Robin D.

Subject: 8.09: How can I hack libc.a to alter how hostnames are resolved? [ formerly in section 1.618 ] [ Editor's note: You might want to see Question 2.07 for advice on recovering from a deleted or corrupted libc.a before attempting this hack. Note that this procedure is for AIX 3.2 ONLY --- AIX 4.x already has a supported method of controling name resolution. See question 1.800.] 1. get the resolv+ source (I see a copy on in networking/ip/dns and there are likely copies elsewhere). We are using version 2.1.1, which appears to be the latest available. gethostnamadr.c needs a couple of additions: 23a24,26 > #ifdef _AIX > #include <sys/time.h> > #endif 35a39,41 > #ifdef _AIX > #include <sys/ioctl.h> /* for SIOCGIFCONF */ > #else 36a43 > #endif 2.

As shipped, IBM's /lib/syscalls.exp contains an entry for fork(). This needs to be removed as it will cause the new shr.o to use the system call entry point rather than the library wrapper and this can cause some rather odd behavior. For example, I ran across one using the '!' command in vi where the error/informational messages were corrupted. 4. You can use "ar r libc.a shr.o" but that will leave a big hole in libc.a, since the new shr.o is slightly bigger than the original. I always extract all the .o's from libc.a and build a brand new one - suit yourself. 5. Before the next step, you'll want to set up the two configuration files. The first is /etc/resolv.conf and it is basically the same as before except for the new keyword "search" - intended to replace the "domain". See the resolver.5 manual page for details (included with the resolv+ source). The other file is /etc/host.conf, which is where you set the order of search. See resolv+.8 for information on this. 6. Now, the only tricky part left is to get the new libc.a installed. You'll note the Makefile has a target for install_libc. Just put the following in install_lib.c and run "make install_libc" to build. ------------------------------- begin install_libc.c ------------------------- #include <stdio.h> static char *nodns[] = { "/usr/ccs/lib/libc.a" , "/usr/ccs/lib/libc.a.ORIG" }; static char *hasdns[] = { "/usr/ccs/lib/libc.a.NEW" , "/usr/ccs/lib/libc.a" }; #define OLD (0) #define NEW (1) main() { if(link(nodns[OLD],nodns[NEW])) { perror("link"); exit(1); } if(unlink(nodns[OLD])) { perror("unlink"); exit(1); } if(link(hasdns[OLD],hasdns[NEW])) { perror("link"); exit(1); } if(unlink(hasdns[OLD])) { perror("unlink"); exit(1); } exit(0); } ------------------------------- end install_libc.c --------------------------- 7. You'll want to do this on a quiet machine. Move the new libc.a to /usr/ccs/lib/libc.a.NEW, then run install_libc. It is probably a good idea to reboot afterwords (though not strictly required). We have a similar program called restore_libc (exercise for the reader) for backing out the change. Rather than do this on every machine (we have 170+ RS/6000's), I simply put this new libc.a into my network-installable image, which I blasted out over the year-end holiday break (I created a method for loading a new image onto machines without having to boot off of floppies and turn keys). Of course, for the really cautious, you can always make the change after booting off of the maintenance floppies...
