SUMMARY: HELP!! Can not start "openwin" !!!

Date: Wed Mar 26 1997 - 16:13:07 CST

Thank you for the help. Most answer asked me check permissions on following
three files:

 /tmp, /tmp/.X11-unix and /tmp/.X11-pipe

Those three files should have all permission to all users. I have correct
setup on /tmp/.X11-unix and /tmp/.x11-pipe but NOT /tmp.

my /tmp was:

drwxrwxrwx 7 root root 535 Mar 26 09:20 /tmp/

It need be changed to :

drwxrwxrwt 7 sys sys 535 Mar 26 09:20 /tmp/

The way to do it are:

    #shutdown -g0 -y -i0
>b -s
    Login on single user mode
    #chown sys /tmp
    #chgrp sys /tmp
    #chmod 1777 /tmp

It fixed the problem.
