Error calling all IRIX admins/users, help!

i have a EEPROM issue

i believe on a SGI IRIX system its located @ /sbin/sulogin

but how do you access that file? everytime i've "more" or "cat" the file it closes the terminal window for somereason.

i'm trying to see if its security mode is set to full/command

thanks for all advice and guidance! Smilie

ive googled the heck out of it n haven't found much for IRIX Smilie

What does EEPROM have anything to do with the program /sbin/sulogin ? What kind of "access" are you trying to have from this file?
# 3  
You usually don't access the file sulogin at all since it is a binary used for the login when you boot in single user mode. Found it on my Debian box and also the man page for it.
If you want to see any readable stuff from the sulogin binary, use
Code:
strings /sbin/sulogin

But I seriously doubt you get something useful out of it.

I don't know either what it has to do with EEPROM.
# 4  
hmm ok

well how do you set the EEPROM on an IRIX box so it boots in single-user mode with a password?

I know on a Solaris box you set either eeprom security-more=full or eeprom security-more=command
# 5  
EEPROM security is a hardware function. Try the hardware manual.
IRIX is an operating system.
Google "Irix manual" found one easily, but there are different versions.
