Sun Managers:

Many thanks to all who answered my request for information leading to the
capture of patch 100713. My original post (in succinct form):

>25) How do I make the numeric keypad on a type 5 keyboard work with xterm?
> You need to patch the /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/XTerm and
> $OPENWINHOME/lib/app-defaults/XTerm files as described in sun
> patch 100713-01 or later.
>I have been looked on for this patch, as well as one or two other

>who has this patch and can,

I have learned my lesson: NEVER ask for a patch from a list of undetermined
numbers. I received many copies of the patch (thank you!), but from now on I
will only ask to pointed to where I might obtain the patch. We wouldn't want
to fill up the bandwidth with too much extraneous uucoding, now would we?? ;-)

I won't post the patch in this summary. If, after reading the summary, someone
out there still feels they can't get it from the sources mentioned, send me
email and I'll send it to you.

Did you try archie to find it? Or possible even better, have you tried
calling Sun's online patch bbs? If you need then number let me know...I
have it around somewhere.

6. From: "Bob Bartlett" <>:

Try using archie. It is a great utility for finding anything on the
net. Find below a listing from archie (I've not deleted the file
matches that are not the patch -- I was not expecting anything to
match 100713 other than the patch). If you need the code for the
archie client, let me know and I'll mail it or transfer it to you.

To get Sun patches, you should call your Sun support hotline or
people. They're not public-domain; they're not legally supposed to be
freely FTP-able.

A good place for finding Sun patches is is another good site.
A good way to track these patches down is to use 'Archie' either by a remote
log in to an archie server or by using the 'archie' or 'xarchie' clients
available on the net.
For example, to find the patch you want, I just did an 'archie -c 100713' and
got back an answer listing 12 sites which have the patch.

11. From: Sven-Ove Westberg <>

Also game me an archie -s 100713-01 listing, which, for brevity and against
redundancy, I won't duplicate here.

Thanx Sven-Ove!
