FAQ - questions that re-appear in the forum

Of course there's also the FAQ links in the bottom right corner of the ITRC home page, but these link you to the US sites only, giving the Europeans no access :(

Frank Slootweg adds the following quote about HP FAQ's:

As far as I know there is no HP-UX FAQ specifically for the ITRC Forums, but there is a FAQ for the Usenet Newsgroup comp.sys.hp.hpux which I think should/could be used instead: ftp://rtfm.mit.edu/pub/faqs/hp/hpux-faq There is also be an HTML version of the FAQ (see 4.1.1 in the FAQ) at http://faqs.org/faqs/hp/hpux-faq/

Here's a shot at the questions that I've seen appear again and again. This script, which also works on Linux and AIX, will execute most of them and shows the system specifics in one like this, and does not need root rights:

  a5:/ 101 # ux
  a5  HP-UX 11.00/64 U  9000/800/A500-7X/64 PA8700/750(2) pa-2.0  2048 Mb
  a5:/ 102 #

on PA-RISC, or on Itanium:

  x1:/ 101 # ux
  x1  HP-UX 11.23/64 U  rx1620/64 Itanium 2/1600(2) ia64  2037 Mb
  x1:/ 102 #

The script was updated on 27-05-2005 to implement the syscall () functionality as described in this thread, which not only makes it much faster, but also gives more information if you're not root.

HP-UX 11.2x (Itanium) has a single command to show all:
