Problems with 5.8 - Sun Solaris

Hi All, I have a strange problem... I by accident deleted the /usr/bin/mc68 files and the mconnect... At that point I lost any screen output or output in general.. example: if I do a 'ls' or any other command I receive no output. I copied over these files from an identical system and rebooted but still have the same problem. I can used the graphic's and everything is there.. but no command line output. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks...

    Default Problems with 5.8

    Hi All,

    I have a strange problem... I by accident deleted the /usr/bin/mc68 files
    and the mconnect... At that point I lost any screen output or output in
    general.. example: if I do a 'ls' or any other command I receive no output.
    I copied over these files from an identical system and rebooted but still
    have the same problem. I can used the graphic's and everything is there..
    but no command line output.

    Anybody have any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Sounds to me like you've deleted more than you think, or have caused
    some other damage that you've not mentioned. /usr/bin/mc6* are
    basically just there for scripts - depending on the machine architecture
    they'll return 0 (true) or 255 (false) so you can do things like

    if I'm an mc68000 machine do this
    else if I'm a SPARC do this
    else if I'm a 3B15 do this

    In fact all these (/usr/bin/mc68000, /usr/bin/sparc, /usr/bin/u3b15 and
    so on) are all hardlinks to the same file - a complete list (ls -li)
    from /usr/bin on a Solaris 8 machine is

    So you don't need to copy them from another machine, simply

    ln sparc mc68000
    ln sparc mc68010

    and so on.

    /usr/bin/mconnect is a different matter, of course, but what it does
    isn't rocket science (and shouldn't cause you to "lose screen output").
    It simply opens a socket to the smtp port on the machine you specify -
    as far as I'm aware mconnect isn't used by anything on the system (i.e.
    it's only used by humans from the command line).

    Perhaps pkgchk -n might be your friend (though you may have to run it
    blind and put the output in a file which you'd have to put onto another
    machine to read!)
