Startup Problems

Post by andy.parrow » Thu Sep 27, 2007 6:13 am

Hello,

I've read thru some posts here to try and solve my problem, but cannot for some reason. This is a AIX 5.3 machine. Driver starts up when "root" is logged in - but not "user".

Added the below line in /etc/inittab

3d:234:respawn:/etc/3DxWare/daemon/3dxsrv -d usb -debug -E /dev/null >/dev/null 2>&1
-----------------------------------------------------

Below is the output of the log file


[2007-09-27 09:06:10] 3dxsrv.c,651: displayname = $DISPLAY set to :0
[2007-09-27 09:06:11] auth.c :: authGetUser(), FOUND: user = catusr, id = dt, line = lft0, pid = 86090, host = , type = 7
[2007-09-27 09:06:11] auth.c :: authGetUser(), FOUND: user home = "/home/catusr"
[2007-09-27 09:06:11] 3dxsrv.c :: startupInittab(), authGetUser(), user=catusr

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP !!!!

Hello Andy,

to get a better understanding of what is going on please let me ask some questions first:

Which version of 3dxsrv are you using ("3dxsrv -v")?
What is the maintenance- or technologylevel of your AIX 5.3 ("oslevel -s" and "oslevel -r")?
Do you have any special setups (access permissions) that may prevent the driver from starting?
Which device are you using? Do the device LEDs (if present) light up?

Regards,

3dxsrv -v = 1.2.11
oslevel -s = 5300-00-00
oslevel -r = 5300-00
device = Spacemouse Plus USB (no LEDs)

No special setups or access permissions that I know.

Sorry for such a long time to reply. Sorta got side track track regarding this issue.

Hi Andy,

thank you for the information on your AIX. Actually our driver should run without problems. :wink:

One idea though:
Can you please try to start the driver with -d /dev/mouse1 (or what the device node for your SpaceMouse Plus is) instead of -d usb.

Please let me know if this a possible solution for your issue.


Regards,
