I am writing again in responce to Bela Lubkin's message dated
2/12/97, regarding my X11 License Manager problem.
My problem again:
= What I did before the License Manager messed up was that I
= removed a licensed copy of SCO C compiler and development
= tools, using the Software Manager in X. That's all I did.
= Now whenever I double click the License Manager icon I would
= "Brand usage error, check details for correct usage"
= and the OK button to quit.
Bela suggested that:
= Usually this sort of message also has a "details" button,
= which opens up another window with a more detailed message.
= Is there anything like that?
Unfortunately, I don't see any details button. Just the OK
button to quit the existing error message window.
Bela also suggested:
= You could replace it (/etc/brand) with a shell script
= something like:
= (first rename /etc/brand to /etc/brand.real). Run License
= Manager, let it fail, then see what got logged. Compare
= that to the brand(ADM) man page. What bad command is being
Here's what I got from doing the above:
% cat /tmp/brand.log
Sun Feb 16 15:00:00 HKT 1997: /etc/brand -I
Sun Feb 16 15:00:01 HKT 1997: /etc/brand -L
Reviewing the brand(ADM) man page, I don't see a "-I" option
flag. I wonder if that (wrong option flag being used) is the
cause of my "Brand usage error" problem? If so, could the
script file (that gets executed when I click on the License
Manager icon in X11) be the culprit? Any idea?
Thanks in advance.
