Upgrading from RH 4.2 to 5.2: fvwm2-95 is gone

Upgrading from RH 4.2 to 5.2: fvwm2-95 is gone

Post by root » Mon, 21 Jun 1999 04:00:00


        After upgrading from 4.2 to 5.2, fvwm2-95 has gone away, ie,
        it seems to have been removed.

        Any ideas as to why this happened? Also, did RH save it to another file name?

        Thanks in advance,


1. Problem with scripts that work on RH 4.2 but not RH 5.2

 I have just recently installed RH 5.2 on my computer at home and
when I try to run script files that work on my computer at work (RH 4.2)
I get error messages.
 For example, the when I run the following script (I have only inclded a
portion of it for brevity) I get an error message that does not like the
then and endif right near the beginning.

#!/bin/csh -f
###  LRI C Shell initiatization

###  If you get sick of seeing warning messages, just do a
###  "set lri_quiet" before you source this script and it'll shut up.

if ($?did_lri_cshrc_v1) then
        echo Already sourced this LRI init file, skipping
        exit 0
set did_lri_cshrc_v1
if (! $?lri_quiet) set be_verbose

### Set the main project directory; most of the time this will be in AFS
### On nav1, the standalone LRI_ROOT is /home/nomad.  Fill in defaults for
### other systems as appropriate.

set roots = (/afs/cs/project/lri-7 /home/nomad)

 Now it works perfectly fine at work. I am running the tcsh shell in
both places.

 I also get problems when trying to run gmake files, which again work on
RH 4.2 but not 5.2. This one is even more strange since when I get to
the line ifndef LRI_ROOT it always seems to be true, even when I put
a line LRI_ROOT:=/home/sjm right before it.

 If anyone has any suggestions as to what could be wrong or what I
can do to try and narrow the probelem down please let me know. I feel
that it is probably a setup problem since I have just recently installed
RH 5.2 on my computer (note it was a fresh install and not an upgrade).
