    Suspect something in my environment is not set up properly for Solaris or IRIX. Any ideas? Using the Golden Distribution: melinux55_99 -n works.

      Using the Golden Distribution:

      "melinux55_99 -n" works.
      "mesunos55_99 -n" works.
      "meirix55_99 -n" works.

      "melinux55_99" works.
      "mesunos55_99" just exits, no error msg, no core dump.
      "meirix55_99" just exist, no error msg, no core dump.

      Perhaps a LD_LIBRARY_PATH thing?

      ... As me -n operates correctly I would guess that it is not finding the X-Windows shared library (.so) object libX11.so.?. Try adding the appropriate path

        As "me -n" operates correctly I would guess that
        it is not finding the X-Windows shared library (.so)
        object libX11.so.?.

        Try adding the appropriate path of the library to
        the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable. If this does not
        work then the executable may have been linked against
        a different version of the library - in this instance
        you typically get an error telling you whats not
        been found. The version of the shared library
        may be corrected by creating a symbolic link of
        the expected .so version to an existing shared
        library of a different version. (Naughty but
        does work).

        Alternatively rebuild a new executable from the
        source. For your platforms a simple ./build
        in the source directory should build you an
        executable which will be then fully compatible
        with your system.

        Hope this helps.

        Regards
        Jon.

          |Using the Golden Distribution:

          Mine says Date 99/11/05 in Help>About.
          Don't remember which distribution this is.

          |"mesunos55_99 -n" works.

          This tanks for me.

          |"mesunos55_99" just exits, no error msg, no core dump.

          This runs for me.
