There may be some conflict between Motif 2.1 and LessTif
0.88, or between ddd and Motif 2.1. The ddd help message
suggests "changing the .blockTTYInput resource." whatever
that is.

Comment 1 Tim Powers 1999-08-24 13:15:59 UTC
Do you have Motif 2.1 andlesstif both installed? If so, you shouldn't,
they will conflict.

Also, if it can't allocate the color grey, you may need more colors in
X than what you have right now.

What I would recommend you do is to get the lesstif and ddd packages
from rawhide, they have been tested and ddd appears to work. You can
get the lesstif and ddd packages at
ftp://rawhide.redhat.com/rawhide/powertools/ , the packages are in
i386, sparc and alpha, depending on your architecture.

Please note that the ddd package is compiled against the lesstif in
the above directories.
