nocol-users Re: NOCOL Ideas...
Hi all, Further to my previous e-mail, I have found the answers to a couple of these: > 1. Is it possible to hack netconsole (setup_display.c) so that I can > set from an environment variable what row I want the split of the > EVENTS/MESSAGES screens rather than having to press c to get it > to the height I want it every time I launch it? change ./nocol-4.2.1/include/netconsole.h MSGSZ to required height, remove *.o from /nocol-4.2.1/netconsole and recompile. 177 #define MSGSZ 6 /* Messages window */ The thing that was bugging me about this is once you have two one-line messages, with the default 2 line message window, the messages flash on and off with alternate refreshes. Setting it to 6 means that it doesn't do this unless there are more lines. 2. Can the term type/size parameters also be manually set using environment variables rather than prompting for terminal type each time? I got round this by commenting out, from netconsole's utils.c: 203 /* Always prompt so user can see the terminal type 204 205 206 strcpy(ptermtype, get_reply("Terminal type", ptermtype, 207 C_ALPHA|C_DIGIT|C_PUNCT)); 208 for ( p = good_terminals ; **p != '\0' ; ++p ) 209 if (strcmp (*p, ptermtype) == 0) 210 return(1) ; 211 */ I just find it annoying having to confirm my term type every time I start, and one of the displays auto-starts and is up out of reach with no keyboard, so when netconsole restarts, I have to get out keyboard, plug it in, press return......
