SUMMARY: X-windows problem

From: Avrami, Louis (

Hello all,

        Many people suggested adding '/usr/openwin/lib' to our LD_LIBRARY_PATH
environmental variable, which seemed to do the trick.

        The curious thing is that our LD_LIBRARY_PATH on all of our servers has
the same definition:


        yet we were experiencing this problem only on one server. The others
still functioned properly.

        Bob Channas had the information on what the culprit is:

        I started getting the same error with ReflectionX and eXceed after
installing the latest recommended patch cluster for 2.5.1 (SPARC). Sun
had me
back out patch # 103566-23. I am still waiting to hear from them what
of 103566 should be installed. If I hear from them, I'll let you know.
works okay so far without the patch.

        The server that was failing had patch 103566-23 installed on Tuesday.
Our other servers had version 103566-21.

Thanks again to everyone who responded.
