Two workarounds for Sun Alert ID 102652 are provided below (as provided by the Sun Alert). Select one of the two to implement.

A) Use an alternate login mechanism such as dtlogin(1) or if using Solaris 10, gdm(1).

or:

B) Modify the xdm(1) configuration file, xdm-config, and create a new Xsession file using the following commands as the root user:

# cd /usr/openwin/lib/X11/xdm

# mv xdm-config xdm-config.orig

# sed -e 's/cp \/dev\/null "$errfile"/umask 077 \&\& cp \/dev\/null "$errfile"/' Xsession > /etc/X11/Xsession

# sed -e 's/\/usr\/openwin\/lib\/X11\/xdm\/Xsession/\/etc\/X11\/Xsession/' xdm-config.orig > xdm-config


then restore executable permissions to the file by running the following command:

# chmod 755 Xsession
