[kde-solaris] SAMBA 3.0.9, an additional very small package and some

I have uploaded a pkg of Samba 3.0.9 for Solaris 8/9 SPARC (in the
REQUIRED directory). This is a full build of Samba 3.0.9 with the
SunOne Studio 9 compiler (Forte 9). This will enable the Samba
configuration module in the KDE Control Center.
I just found out today that my KDE packages have keyboard autorepeat
problems. It is partly my fault that i let it go on for so long -- i
was just completely unaware of it, because autorepeat has always
worked fine on my Sun boxes. And, enabling the keyboard mappings in
the KDE Control Center requires a very small additional package,
which i forgot to upload.
To fix the autorepeat problem (yes, autorepeat really works on Solaris
8 and 9! :-):
You need to install a very small additional package named KDEX11R6-66.
This package contains very few libraries from the XFree86 distro (do
not worry, it is not the _entire_ X11R6 installation :-):
plus the required XKB extension keyboard mappings in
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/*, and two small binaries: /usr/X11R6/bin/xterm
and /usr/X11R6/bin/luit. luit is requied by the XFree86 xterm. The
libraries are required by /opt/fsw4sun/bin/setxkbmap's dependencies
(which is what the keyboard mappings module in the KDE Control Center
depends on). The xterm in this directory tree supports ANSI colors,
so you can use the color 'ls' in /opt/fsw4sun/bin/ls. All this is
necessary because the XKB Module in KControl depends on setxkbmap,
which is part of XFree86.
To enable key autorepeat in Xsun:
This is the Xsun startup line from my /etc/dt/config/Xservers file:
:0 Local local_uid at console root /usr/openwin/bin/Xsun :0 +accessx \
+kb r -ar1 500 -ar2 100 -x xrender -ld 0 -ls 0
(in reality it appears on a single line, i added the backslash because
of word wrap). I did not modify the /usr/dt/config/Xservers startup
file in any way.
This line is identical for Solaris 8 and Solaris 9. Keyboard
autorepeat works just fine. To see all the options for Xsun, you can
and it will print out a lot of stuff.
The patchlevels of my boxes are:
SunOS starwars 5.8 Generic_117350-12 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-60
SunOS obiwan 5.9 Generic_117171-05 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-60
with the Sun Recommended Jumbo Patch from October 2004.
Thank you very much to Volker Simonis at Sun for letting me know about
this -- i was completely unaware of these mishaps.
