The quick solution was to not do it the way I wanted to, and use XDM
It looks like broadcast will work best on my domain.
>From Reggie Stuart:
If CDE is running on the Solaris machine (already running dtlogin), you just
need to fire up Xconfig. Click on "communications", and set the mode to
XDMCP-query or XDMCP-broadcast. If you select query, click on "configure"
and type in the hostname you want to attach. If you select broadcast, when
you actually start the Exceed x-server, it will generate a list of all the
servers available running X so you can login. Once that's done, starting up
the red X should take you to a screen that looks like you are at the
machines console, failsafe login and all.
Other correct responders:
Meenakshisundaram Paramasivam (Sundar) had helpful info on how to run
If you are on a Sun machine, type: olwm & (or /usr/openwin/bin/olwm &)
If you are on a HP machine, type: mwm & (or /usr/bin/X11/mwm &)
If you are on a SGI machine, type: 4Dwm & (or /usr/bin/X11/4Dwm &)
I still would like to find out what the window manager for CDE is, but
the XDM thing works pretty well.
I'm looking to do something similar to Nabeel, but want to run CDE so it'll
display on my NT exceed server. I'm not sure what the window manager is on
Solaris 8 (or any Solaris) is, though. On linux I do something like
"/usr/X11R6/bin/fvwm2 -display machine.name:0" with rsh and the exceed
Xstart tool. What is the window manager (or what I need to execute) on the
Solaris 8 workstation to do the same thing?
