Solaris console problems vs. nedit

Solaris console problems vs. nedit

Post by Bruce Hamilto » Sun, 21 Mar 1999 04:00:00

I'm trying to figure out why several of my Suns have consoles that are completely blank, and others give a "The X-server cannot be started on display <hostname>:0"

Most systems are Solaris 2.5.1 with Recommended patch cluster from around last October. One system is 2.6 with Recommended cluster from about a month ago.

I'm a bit skeptical that this is a Solaris issue, and am starting to lean toward it being something done by running nedit as root.

If anybody out there has seen this sort of problem, please drop me a line.
