I'm not quite sure this is the right place for the question now that I think about it, but I'll ask it anyway.

Is there an XWindows server that will run on AIX4.3.3?
I want to run KDE (for example) on it, but need a server to do this first obviously.
Any ideas?
Ta.

The standard X Server that comes with AIX 4.3.3 will run KDE no problem. IBM provides an AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications, with a wide range of GNU and opensource software in rpm format.

See their site:

http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/aix/pro.../download.html

It will explain the procedure better than I could regurgitate it here, though basically all you need is the rpm installp image and you will be set for rpm. Note that if you can, update to AIX 5L, which was designed for linux software compatibility, while 4.3.3 was a bit of a hack on their part.
