7.6 IRIX 5.X

7.6.2 Post Install

Now you can personalize the system. Some things you might want to change include the following.

turn off the route daemon
To do this edit /etc/config/routed and change "on" to "off".

set a default route
Edit /etc/init.d/network and add a line similar to:
/usr/etc/route add default xxx.yyy.zzz.1 1
before the routed line.

remove the setuid/setgid bits from /usr/lib/desktop/permissions to close this security hole

get the latest BSD sendmail, or install the sendmail patch, again for security concerns.

Also, read through the steps above for SunOS to see which might be applicable here.

Ohio State University members can usually find the necessary IRIX patches on the patch server, araminta.acs.ohio-state.edu.
