The problem was that when upgrading from Solaris 2.4 to 2.5, the new
version of the shared Motif library was not installed (SUNWmfrun
(Motif RunTime Kit) package from the Solaris 2.5 CD).

My Request was:

hello Sun-managers...

I junst upgradded my SparcStation from Solaris 2.4 to Solaris 2.5.
Everything seems to have worked well. I also installed CDE 1.01, and
when I rebooted the computer, the CDE tried to start, but stop and gave
me a core file. I started it using the S99dtlogin added in the rc2.d
directory when CDE is installed.

Looking at /vat/dt/Xerrors, I found the following: dtgreet: fatal: relocation error: symbol not found:
_XmSetThickness: referenced in /usr/dt/lib/

writen several times, and then

/usr/dt/config/Xsetup[145]: 961 Bus Error(coredump)

I really don't know what to do... Does anybody have an idea??
