OpenWindows Directory Structure

The OpenWindows directory structure, which includes the Solaris X server executable and X11 core distribution libraries, is shown in Figure 1-3. Note that /openwin/etc is a symbolic link to /openwin/share/etc, /openwin/include is a link to /openwin/share/include, and /openwin/man is a link to /openwin/share/man. The /share directory contains architecture-independent files.

For more information on the X11 libraries in /openwin/lib, see X11 Libraries.
