Answerbook Patch?

Answerbook Patch?

Post by Laurence Lindstr » Fri, 17 Jul 1998 04:00:00



Hi Solaris Experts:

   I'm using Solaris 2.6/X86/DU3.  

   I'm trying to root out the necessary info to get my disaster
recovery procedure together.  

   This Answerbook2 is a joke.  Keeping this dog running long
enough to make four or five queries, to get to the good stuff, is
impossible.  

   When this runs, it's SLOW.  And when it fails, covering, and then
uncovering the display leaves large blank areas.  Clicking on the "-"
or the "File" buttons/menu items causes the drop down menu to be
displayed, but clicking on the close, or quit has no effect.  

   The rest of the display is fine, and I can do work in other
windows, in fact, I composed this, and am sending it with a shell
session using Seyon, while the answerbook is sitting, dead, on my
desktop.  

   Solaris is a rock.  How does someone write an app for it that is
this bad?  

   Is there a patch for this?  

                                                             Thanks
                                                             Larry

   I used this all day today.  Only one crash.  I wouldn't be
proud of that record, but after yesterday, it seemed great.

1. AnswerBook "Can't open AnswerBook Viewer"

Hello,

I am able to dial in to my workstation  via ppp and redefine the DISPLAY var
to the dynamic IP address that I am given by the company server. Every thing
works fine.
 I am going from Solaris 1.x to Solaris 2.x, and would like to be able to
use AnswerBook. The AnswerBook Navigator comes up ok. But when I select a
topic, I see an error message on my Linux machine that says something to the
effect "Can't open viewer". As the DISPLAY is set to ip:0.0, does the viewer
require another x window something like ip:0.1? Besides this problem, every
thing works great!
 Any ideas, or solutions?

                                         Thanks,
                                         Robert
