Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 10869
X difficulties connecting to Sun Solaris
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
I'm integrating RedHat Linux with my Sun Solaris boxes.
6.2 has some kind of X weirdness, that doesn't allow
all window operations.
Using Sun Solstice, Disk suite tool I cannot drag & drop
metadevices into the work area. I get the "not allowed"
pointer when trying to drop them. This first happened on
a x86 Redhat 6.2 I build specifically as a "head" for
an E-450. When I tried it on a different x86 5.2 machine it
worked fine. I have since upgraded that x86 5.2 to 6.2
and find that I cannot drop the metadevices in the work
Most X operations seem to work ok. I can open and
use most applications fine.
(I just retested the the drag and drop on a Sparc Solaris 7
and it works ok - although sometimes the "not allowed" pointer
is displayed, it allows the drag and drop as it should.)

I do not have access to that software and as such have no way of reproducing
this at all. I will be releasing errata shortly however. Would you be
willing to beta test a potential errata release of XFree86-3.3.6? It is
entirely possible that it might fix the problem for you.
Closing bug due to lack of response...
