A.  Previously Documented Bugs That Were Fixed in the Oracle Solaris 10 9/10 Release

Common Desktop Environment

The following bugs in the Oracle Solaris 10 release apply to the Common Desktop Environment (CDE).

Problem When Printing to a Local Printer With Thunderbird 3 (6978760)

Thunderbird may crash when you attempt to print the address book or while entering page setup when you have the local printer configured.

Workaround: Add the following entry to your user's profile, and then log out and log back in.

export LD_PRELOAD_32=/usr/lib/firefox/

Trusted Stripe Disappears From the Screen After a Resolution Change (6460624)

When you type the /usr/X11/bin/xrandr -s command to set a smaller screen resolution, trusted stripe is no longer displayed. This affects the Trusted CDE Desktop but not the Trusted Java DS Desktop. No error message is displayed.

Workaround: Use one of the following workarounds:

x86: kdmconfig Command Does Not Create System Identification Configuration File for Xorg X Server (6217442)

If you use the JumpStart installation method, the process might use a system identification configuration (sysidcfg) file. This file is used to generate a specific Xsun configuration file for a system. The Xsun configuration portion of a sysidcfg file is created by the command kdmconfig -d filename. However, on systems that use the default Xorg server, the command does not create a file with any Xorg configuration information. Consequently, you cannot use the JumpStart method on these systems without some additional preparatory steps.

Workaround: Before using the JumpStart installation method on a system that uses the Xorg server, perform the following steps.

  1. Prepare a specific xorg.conf file to be used on the system. Store this file in the JumpStart directory of the JumpStart server.

    Create an xorg.conf file with one of these commands:

    • /usr/X11/bin/Xorg -configure

    • /usr/X11/bin/xorgconfig

    • /usr/X11/bin/xorgcfg

  2. Create a finish script that copies the xorg.conf file to the /etc/X11 directory in the system that you want to install. For example, the script might include the following line:

    cp ${SI_CONFIG_DIR}/xorg.conf /etc/X11/Xorg.conf
  3. In the custom JumpStart rules file, include the finish script in the rules entry for systems of the type that you want to install.

  4. Perform the custom JumpStart installation.

For instructions about how to perform a custom JumpStart installation, see the Oracle Solaris 10 9/10 Installation Guide: Custom JumpStart and Advanced Installations. Chapter 4 includes information about the JumpStart rules file, while Chapter 5 contains a section about finish scripts.
