Does anyone have a version of olvwm working under Solaris 2.3 on a
Sparc 2? The version of OpenWindows is 3.3.
I'm forever*: when coming out of xlock, when trying to quit
an xterm,... I have to telnet into my machine, and kill the olvwm
process, and start OpenWindows again. Very annoying.
I've retrieved the source from sunsite.unc.edu, but the executable
built from it is not better: my xterms have no title bars nor scroll
bars, and shortly after starting, OpenWindows crashes, bringing me
back to a shell prompt.
I've applied all relevant patches to this Sparc 2, both those for
Solaris 2.3 as well as all OpenWindows patches.
To make matters worse, an officemate across the hall has things
working just fine on a SparcStation LX, but when I copy his control
files (.xinitrc, .openwin-init, etc.) over to this Sparc 2, I get
the same behavior.
Am I destined to use olwm instead of olvwm? Please say it isn't so!
