Description Roland Mainz 2004-04-04 20:42:20 UTC
Solaris 2.9 x86 04/2004 release... just downloaded, installed in a VMware VM - 
"xstls" does not work ... ;-(

The only thing I can get out of xstls is tons of empty lines:
-- snip --
% xstls

-- snip --

I tried 
% (XST_SERVICE=local xstls -ff)
per adg's IRC comments - no change.

The ST font server seems to be running:
-- snip --
% ps -ef | fgrep stf
    root   643   165  0 06:19:24 ?        0:02 stfsloader
  daemon   646     1  0 06:19:24 ?        0:30 stfontserverd
% ls -l /var/tmp/

Comment 1 Roland Mainz 2004-04-04 20:54:05 UTC
"xstls -l" seems to be "usefull" to kill Xsun (first invokation results in a X
error, the 2nd kills Xsun):
-- snip --
% xstls -l
X Error of failed request:  37
  Major opcode of failed request:  152 (ST)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  23 ()
  Serial number of failed request:  15
  Current serial number in output stream:  17
% xstls -l
X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
-- snip --
Comment 2 Roland Mainz 2004-04-04 21:14:58 UTC
I filed bug 410 ('Solaris x86 2004/04 crashes after execution of "xstls -l ;
xstls -l"') for the Xsun crasher... this one is only for "xstls not working".
Comment 3 Jay Hobson 2004-04-08 12:57:46 UTC
Needed to change Xst_conv.c so that UTF16 format was changed.
Code existed, but only ran on non-sun compilations. Opps.
