Solaris 2.5 OpenWindows crashes system
Posted on 1997-04-05
On starting Open Windows, the screen goes black, followed by a small amount of disk I/O, then everything stops, and all I can do is reset the machine.
This is not a display config problem, since even setting it to 640x480 16 colours has the same result.
It started occurring after I installed Wabi and enabled my second serial port. (COM2, its an intel platform). I have reversed both of these, but it didn't solve the problem.
Has anyone encountered this sort of problem?
