Solaris 10: CDE okay, cannot launch JDS


Hello,

Just after I installed Solaris 10/x86 it was possible to use both CDE and JDS.

But after I fixed several problems (first, having my network card recognized and configured, then treating a conflict between this card and ide devices), now, I cannot any more launch JDS.

I know, a similar problem is addressed on this page
http://www.solaris-x86.org/software/...ing/jds3.mhtml
but, unfortunately. removing a file as suggested in this page didn't fix my problem with JDS.

Any idea ?

Thanks

What happens when you choose JDS ?
Is your host's IP address under dhcp control ?

Thanks for your reply.

I get a black screen with a clock in the middle of the screen.

No I use fixed IP address. But IP addressing corresponds to what I have changed between the time JDS worked and now!

Okay, remove some temporary gnome files that are persisting in /var/tmp:
gconfd-<your-uid>
mapping-<your-uid>
orbit-<your-uid>
Make sure your hostname is resolved to your static IP in both /etc/hosts and /etc/nodes
That should fix the problem.
