My problem: I work for an overseas company which supplies terminals to industry. Older terminals use vxworks. We are a satellite of this company so getting support on vxworks is difficult. FYI I have a linux/unix background but no vxworks.
When a PCI card becomes suspect I simply flash the firmware back onto the card using a burner attached to a PC. I am not sure which OS the PC is booting into - it has *nix type features. (I think) I have stuffed up the script which supervises the process.
Can anyone identify the OS and help me to fault find?
- During boot I see "Vxld 1.2" which suggests to me it is booting into vxworks
- After booting I get a prompt "->" (my quotes)
- To get into the correct directory I type "cd /abc/bin"
- To initiate the script I type "<load.sh"
- I got nosy and typed "cat load.sh"
- Since this point, "<load.sh" simply returns a blank line and back to the command prompt
I am loath to type anything more based on the problems I (may) have created. If this is vxworks can anyone suggest how to dump the file and/or edit it?
that's my needle in a haystack. Any help appreciated.
