Known Errors

These are the known errors in our products, logged as reported with versions and platforms affected as well as corrections and work-arounds.

This list is largely historical, since it records all problems that have been reported throughout G&R history. Only the most recently reported problems still exist, unless you are using a very old copy of the product, in which case you should update the product to the most recent version.

E0898: Host Links R6.1 root user cannot run listener

Product: Hostlinks 6.1
Platform: All Unix/Linux
Status: Fixed for 6.2.
Last updated: 2003-09-16 10:41:42

The s-bit on the file 'gstart' introduced in Host Links 6.1  had
the side effect that only the owner of the file could run any
Host Links product. The owner is 'gar', and so our normal
servers run from user gar would run, but it stopped 'root' from
running the listener. It also stopped individual users from
running G&R client programs (Qsim, V78sim & etc).


Remove the s-bit on the file 'usr/gar/bin/gstart' with the

   chmod 755 /usr/gar/bin/gstart
