x11r6 xterm

x11r6 xterm

?I would appreciate any help in the following problem.
?I built an xterm using ftp.x.org x11r6 sources for solaris 2.5.
?The xterm works fine except when I type exit it does not go away.
?I have to manually kill it from another window.
?Is there a fix for this or did I built it wrongly with some special
?tweaks to be done to the sources? I have applied all the patches(till 13).

The following is from the Solaris FAQ:

6.6) X11R6 on Solaris 2.4 won't run.  Xinit dies with "User Signal 1".
    Xterms won't die. Dired doesn't work in emacs-19.

    Some changes in libc.so and libthread.so break the way libthread is
    linked with libX11.so.  The most noticeable symptoms are failing
    signal handling in xinit, xterms that don't die after the inferior
    shell process exits and emacs-19* after starting dired.

    Apply all fixes upto fix-12 to the X11R6 sources.  Remember to
    change OSMinorVersion to 4 in xc/config/cf/sun.cf as well and use
    "make Everything" or "make World", not just "make".  Make sure you
    change the right OSMinorVersion in sun.cf, the first one is the x86
    minor version, the second one is SPARC one.  Change the one
    appropriate for your system or change both.

    The resulting R6 will not run on Solaris 2.3 or earlier.
    If you want to have the same set of binaries for Solaris 2.3
    and 2.4, you need to disable threaded X altogether by changing
    "#define ThreadedX YES" to "#define ThreadedX NO" in sun.cf.

    Note that you must reinstall the X libraries with "make install"
    before things start working.  There is no need to reinstall
    anything but libX11.so.  Xterm, emacs etc., should start working
    after the change to libX11 is installed.  Check your newly
    installed libX11 with dump -Lv libX11.so.6.  If it still shows
    libthread as "NEEDED", the rebuild didn't work correctly.  Double
    check your changes.  (If you previously used the patch from the FAQ,
    make sure you remove it before applying fix-12.)

    For multi-threaded X to work it necessary to install patch 101925-02
    to fix problems in header files [2.4].  You need to reinstall gcc
    or re-run just-fixinc after installing that patch.


1. X11R6 , xterm and Libraries

Hi All

   I have compiled up X11R6 on Solaris 2.4 using Gcc 2.6.3. I now appear to
a problem with `xterm`. The program starts fine but when exiting the shell or
killing the window it hangs, and clocks up CPU time. Can anybody suggest
any problems which I should look at.
