[New] Thinlinc / Compute - new prompt

Added by Carsten Rose over 8 years ago

The default prompt in any bash terminal (thinlinc & compute server) have been changed.

  • The history number has been replaced by the last part of the current directory.
  • If the current directory is equal to the home directy, the '~' will be displyed.
  • The return code of the last command will be shown (as earlier). This is quite usefull to check if the last command encountered any errors (0 means ok, everything else means 'some error').
    0-~> ls /tMp
    ls: cannot access /tMp: No such file or directory
    2-~> cd /tmp
    0-tmp> ls

[Solved] Network problems with some terminals and printers

Added by Carsten Rose over 8 years ago

Dear all

after the network migration from yesterday, we found several broken or misconfigured network ports. Affected are all devices which are configured for LAN connections like printers and thinlinc terminals. Symptoms are 'no printing at all' or for the terminals 'booting and stopping'. Please report any problems to .

  • The terminal booting problem has been fixed by installing the latest updates.
  • The broken network ports has been identified as wrong documented - and therefore not broken.
