Motor Record: Known problems with Release 6-2
Link errors occurred when building "XPSGatheringMain" for the solaris-sparc-gnu
target. Newport users should upgrade to R6-2-1.
Errors occurred in various motorApp's when building for the solaris-sparc (SUNWspro)
target. SUNWspro users should upgrade to R6-2-1.
Mark River's found and fixed a bug in the motor record. RDBD was being used in
motor record initialization before the RDBD validation check. This resulted in
motor positions not being initialized from save/restore at boot-up if RDBD was
not included in a save/restore save set. This is fixed in R6-2-2.
A bug was introduced into the shell command motorUtilInit affecting these
versions of the motor distribution; R6-2, R6-2-1 and R6-2-2. This bug resulted
in the erroneous error message; "motorUtilInit: Prefix %c: has more than 53
characters. Exiting". Replace <motor>/motorApp/MotorSrc/motorUtil.cc with
the following copy: motorUtil.cc
The "alldone" PV in motorUtil.db defaulted to the "moving" state between "iocInit
" and "motorUtilInit", giving the false indication that motors were moving
during boot-up. The "alldone" PV now defaults to the "done" state. Replace <motor>/motorApp/Db/motorUtil.db
with the following copy: motorUtil.db
