The great thing about this list is that there is always at least one
person who is bound to know something!!!
Thanks to firstname.lastname@example.org (Steve Butterfield), who hit it in one.
Netview/6000 is having problems with the default 24-bit frame buffer
(S24) that came built-in with the Sparc 5s.
I tried displaying Netview/6000 again in openwindows (in 8-bit mode)
using the command:
openwin -dev /dev/fbs/tcx0 defdepth 8
and it works!!!
However, the problem now is, how can I do the same in CDE? Does anybody
have any ideas?

It sounds a bit like a mismatch of visuals to me. Is there a
difference in the Framebuffer depths on the two machines ?.
