Original message was:

I have a user who's Xsession seems to hang upon logging
in to CDE.
His startlog gives the following output:
--- Thu Mar 13 14:48:10 PST 1997
--- /usr/dt/bin/Xsession starting...
--- Xsession started by dtlogin

Is there a stty or terminal problem somewhere? And where?

Thank you so much to:

They pointed me in the right direction by telling me two things:

to edit /usr/dt/config/Xservers and change the bottom from:

 :0 Local local_uid@console root /usr/openwin/bin/Xsun :0 -nobanner


 * Local local_uid@console root /usr/openwin/bin/Xsun :0 -nobanner

and to make sure the correct library files were being read in order.

The actual solution turned out to be

put /usr/dt/lib first in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Thanks again,

Ellen March
