grep libserverdps contents
will give something like :
/usr/openwin/server/lib/libserverdps.so=./libserverdps.so.1 s none SUNWxwpltA
it will give you a line with libserverdps and SUN????? package name
which you can pick out from CD. Since it is add-on - not base OS - I
guess you'll evade full reinstall.
With best regards
