The original question was:
I've tried to run two diskless Solaris 2.3 systems and have gotten
the same message both times when I've tried to start OpenWindows
Binding Unix socket: Illegal argument
Fatal Server Error: Cannot establish unix listening socket
After this, there are the standard X errors saying xinit can't
connect. Any ideas why this is taking place? The two systems are
a SPARC 2 and a SPARC SLC, and the boot system is a SPARC 10
running 2.3 with all of the mandatory patches.
The answer came from Casper Dik (firstname.lastname@example.org) who correctly
Have you patched the clients with the same revision of the kernel
jumbo patch? That is required.
And of course, I hadn't. Once I had installed the kernel patch
101318-59 using installpatch -R, everything booted fine. Thanks also
to William Charles (email@example.com) for his input.
