XLc fix
So.. my woes continued with no dt on the IBM, I did though discover that it was caused by me fitting the GXT6500P in one slot and moving it.. thus the ghost of the original still existed.. So I did a selective install..  I say selective, because I only selected the graphics CDE environment. What that meant to IBM was wipe the whole system!! GREAT..

Anyway, no point crying over spilt AIX..

Some years back on the neckochan site, a very kind person gave me a script to ensure that XLc demo never ran out.. nudge nudge wink wink..

It was in my necko PMs..  and stupidly I either didn't save it anywhere other than the IBM or I just can't find it.

Are you here?

RE: XLc fix
I would be interested in this as well. I'm not a programmer but I know enough to get things compiled and how to fix minor issues. I have not had one piece of "free" software compile successfully in AIX. I tried the XLc demo but it timed out before I really had to chance to try anything and it also needs a package not in the default AIX install. In a Venn diagram you have one circle with free software, one circle with AIX, and my lonely self between the circles. No overlaps. Yeah I know there is AIX freeware but some packages are horribly outdated.

I know of at least two people who have done this, I'll drop Shiunbird a line to see if he can follow up.

RE: XLc fix
I'm sure I just used to rename a file and it generated a new one, I had it do this on start up.

I could curse myself rotten, I was well aware of this file, but I sort of didn't expect it to do a complete install.

Of course now I have to resize all the drives and install all the other stuff.. [CRYING ICON]

Did shuinbird have a Power 5? I think I had him mistaken for Eve?
Tell him I have 2x512MB sticks he can have for nothing.. I know it's small but he may want them.
