Install of the Kde 3.1.4 Binaries for solaris 8
on Solaris 8 07/03 Sunblade 1500
Added the two required Opengl patches.
New system no KDE ever installed on this box before.
Ran pkgadd of all packages. No error msgs.
two or three reports about some file already installed.
lnusertemp file amongst them.
Added /opt/kde-3.1.4/bin to the user path in /etc/default/login
Added the entries to /etc/inet/inetd.conf , /etc/services and /etc/pam.conf
according to the installguide.
Fixed all the Locale ENV Variables in /etc/profile.
Set DT session to KDE-314
Kde complains that /tmp/mcop-username is not owned by user,
It is in fact owned by root.
I assume this is a bug, since this is the first time ever any KDE
login has been performed on this machine.
I fix this by hand so /tmp/mcop-username is owned by user.
Logout - login
I now hear the logon chimes.
the $HOME/.kde/share/config/kcmartsrc is not created automatically.
Maybe I am supposed to start some program to get it created ???
The advice in the Install-instructions about which device symlinks to create
is not correct for the SB1500 as the DVD is
/pci at 1e,600000/ide at d/sd at 2,0"
the sound devies are also different.
the Devices to link to will probably vary wildely depending on the
actual machine type.
I have tested a few apps and they seem to run as expected.
Euphoria OpenGL Xscreensaver works
Well time to go to bed, time is 00:44 here.
All I need now is to recompile the lot for UltraSparc III :-)))))
Very nice work. Thank you Stefan.
