that would be 'dtconfig -e' and shouldn't be necessary
after a base install - dtlogin (CDE) should come up by default.

Quote:> Start it manually?

try '/etc/init.d/dtlogin start'. If this doesn't work you have
a different problem. If this works, but it doesn't autostart,
look if "/etc/rc2.d/S99dtlogin" exists. It should be a (hard)link
to /etc/init.d/dtlogin.

- try to run the above with 'sh -x' to see where it fails.
- look in /var/dt (esp. the Xerrors file). Do you see any messages
  there ? BTW - your ARE running this as root, right ?
- try to start dtlogin with truss to see where it fails.

I boneheadedly did not reboot with the "r" flag.

That's almost as silly as Solaris not recognizing
new hardware ( frame buffer ) on a cold boot. Now,
if it were Sequent hardware.....<GG>

Thanks to all for help!

 
 
 

1. How to avoid bootup after dtconfig -e

I execute "/usr/dt/config/dtconfig -d" for disable on boot up or
"/usr/dt/config/dtconfig -e" for enable on boot up.

I have to boot up RS/6000 J50 after dtconfig -e it takes long time
(C11 some time saver).

Is there way to bringup full CDE after dtconfig -e without rebooting
the host?
(I think there should be a simple command, but I do not know that
command!).

Thanks,
