X11R4 clients on AIX 3.1 (3003+) server

X11R4 clients on AIX 3.1 (3003+) server

Post by Pat Wils » Sat, 30 Mar 1991 07:15:23



I've applied the 3003 patches to the AIX3.1 X.  The 24-bit color board
now looks better - hooray!  On the other hand, certain things that worked
under the 3001 patch are giving me fits:

        1) the X server isn't dying when I quit mwm - I have to
          CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE back (no, I'm not using "open xinit" - maybe
          that's the problem)

        2) we'd rather run the R4 clients, and I've made them from the
          patched MIT distribution.  Most things are fine, but I don't get
          the selections on the twm menus until after I mouse over them
          (the menu box (in the appropriate color) shows up when I
          click the button, but there's nothing in the box until I
          mouse down the list).  This is pretty annoying, and I'm no
          Xpert - any hints on where to look for this?

        3)we're _also_ running ATKpl9 on top of twm.  Most things look
          reasonable, but the printer icon in the ButterAlmond console
          is wrong (hard to describe, too!).  This is the same ATK that's
          presently running just fine on the system at AIX 3.1.3001 X.
          The rest of the fonts seem fine.

That's it for the moment.  If it weren't for the SGI board drivers, I
probably would just go back to the 3001 stuff - it works fine for my
purposes.  

Thanks for any help...

I also had this problem with twm and the way I fixed it was to disable
backing store.  I believe this is done by adding "NoBackingStore" to
the .twmrc file.

Hope that helps...

1. perl 4.010 under AIX 3.1 (3003) and AIX 3.1.5

To make perl 4.010 pass all of its tests under AIX 3.1 (3003) I had to
compile regexec.c with -g and set the cppstdin variable to /lib/cpp.
After running Configure, edit config.sh and change the cppstdin line to:

        cppstdin='/lib/cpp'

After the line

        toke_cflags='optimize="-g"'
add:
        regexec_cflags='optimize="-g"'

Only the cppstdin change to config.sh is needed for AIX 3.1.5.
