Frequently Asked Questions
- Why can't I connect to the VxWorks crate from
- I get a Bad Magic number error when I load my
script into RunControl.
- Why can't I check in/out files to/from the Online
There may be couple of reasons for this. The most common reason is the fact
that RunControl by default assumes the default VxWorks host name is "gitot" and
expects an entry in the hosts file of the PC. The "hosts" file is located in
%WINDIR%\system32\drivers\etc directory. Edit this file and add a line that
Where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of the SBC on the VxWorks crate.
This happens if you have
upgraded from an earlier Python release (eg. Python 2.2 to 2.3) and your *.pyo
or *.pyc files haven't been recompiled for the new Python release. To fix this
problem just delete all your *.pyo and *.pyc files.
If you are having trouble
checking files into or out from the Online cvs repository, check to see whether
you are in the "glonline" Unix NFS group. You can do this by logging into
one of the SLAC Unix boxes (the tersks, the norics, etc.) and running the
"groups" command. If you don't see "glonline" listed as one of the groups
that your username belongs to, please submit a request to Ric Claus.
