  1. patchSG0005424 and 4Dwm fatal error

    I applied patchSG0005424 to several Indigo2s and an Octane running
    Irix 6.5.22 and afterward found that 4Dwm would no longer start up:

    Jan 30 12:40:41 6B:laue Xsession: rardin: login
    Jan 30 12:40:45 3B:laue rld[1093]: 1093:/usr/bin/X11/4Dwm: rld: Fatal
    Error: attempted access to unresolvable symbol in /usr/bin/X11/4Dwm:
    imageIconCreate
    Jan 30 12:41:27 6B:laue Xsession: rardin: logout

    Things returned to normal after I removed the patch. Has anyone else
    had similar results with this patch?

    Yep, several of us have the same issue with 6.5.22.
    Someone else posted success with 6.5.21...
    I started a post in c.s.s.apps yesterday...

    Yep, it is actually a known issue at sgi, I filed a support ticket and
    it was already a knon issue:

    "Yes is a known issue and a bug report was written this morning.
    As soon as I see what patch will replace this one, I will send
    email to you."

    I'm sure we'll see a fix very quickly...

    So it would appear that replacement patches are on the way.
