Summary: Dual monitor in CDE environment

My original question was:

Hello, Gurus:

A question about Solaris 2.5 and CDE v1.0.2 with dual monitors
connected to a single CPU box (ie., there're two GX cards on
one machine).

We can put either 'top' 'bottom' or 'left' 'right' in the
dt configuration to have mouse move across the monitors
in left-right or top-bottom direction. However, I found out
we need to the machine be rebooted to have this take effect.

I'm wondering is there any way we can do something like 'kill -HUP pid'
to restart the dt session instead of rebooting machine?

Here's the answer:

Do a /etc/init.d/dtlogin stop then /etc/init.d/dtlogin start.


But, after I did this, nother problem came up:
The system-related messages wouldn't show up in the Console window,
instead, it showed to the Workspace area even I do have a Console
window on top of the Workspace.

Did anybody notice about this?
