Subject: Re: Urgent: SAS X window installtion problem !
- Are you running from console (the workstation or server) or on a terminal
(X-Terminal, NC, or PC running an X Windows Server)?
- What X startup method are you using? If you are using xdm or xauth
(usually specified by bootlevel on a workstation/console, or by connection
method with a terminal or terminal emulator), you need to confirm that you
are following the appropriate X authorization procedures.
- Is your DISPLAY environment variable set? Correctly? This can cause
- Can you run other X apps from the same terminal session (xterm, for
example)? It appears that you can.
- Can you run SAS in ASCII terminal mode? Try "sas -display ascii". You
should get a reasonable approximation of the old-fashioned character based
DMS session. Don't worry about garbage characters, so long as SAS appears
to start correctly.
If none of these resolves your problem, copy your command line, error
messages, and DISPLAY environment variable values in your next SAS-L post.
