I’m seeing something relatively repeatable and very strange on one of
RTP boxes. I normally work on the RTP box by opening a telnet
from elsewhere. This works just fine until I disconnect the telnet
sessions. After I disconnect, I find that no further telnet sessions
be initiated (by myself or by anyone).
When working on graphics drivers, I telnet to the test machine all
Did you initiate the Photon session from the telnet session?
No. Photon started as part of the boot process for the machine.
If I go to the console, I find that photon seems to have died and RTP
has gone back into text graphics mode. The latest messages on the text
display are always the same:

Can you post the output of the ‘pci’ command?
I regret that I cannot. It turns out that the PC in question has other
problems (apparently, the designers didn’t see fit to connect 3.3V to
the PCI bus!). So, we’ve abandoned that machine. Sorry.
However, I am seeing another piece of annoying behavior on the machine
to which we’ve moved the RTP installation. Every night at about
22:15(PT), RTP seems to shut down to any net sessions. It refuses new
telnet connections, existing telnet sessions are indefinitely suspended,
the box itself will not ping anyone else, and web connections don’t go
We’ve not been able to find any activity that comes up on or about 22:15
(our first thought). So, I’m left with trying to figure out if RTP is
going down for some reason. Any hints where to look?
