SUMMARY: CDE problem

From: Kenneth Simpson (

Hi - well, after re-installing CDE and Motif, then re-installing CDE and Motif,
again, I decide to browse the NIS+ services table with niscat (because I was
in the middle of installing NIS+ when I decide to start CDE on the console.)
And walla - I hadn't populated the services table NIS+ yet.

Thank you for the responses - they convinced me to look elsewhere.
