Here's how get it to work with Solaris
Authored by: JerkyJerk on Feb 29, '04 05:31:38AM
this hint as listed didn't work for me while trying to connect to a Solaris 8 box. What would happen is I would get the XDMCP login dialog. I'd enter my userid, then my password. I would get the splash screen saying logging into the Solaris Desktop Environment. then it would just disappear and bring back to the userid login screen. If I would try again it would just be an endless loop of returning me to the login prompt. So I tried the "failsafe" login. It would give me a xterm but no windowmanager. when I tried to start quartz-wm(or was it twm??) from a local terminal, after doing an xhost + on the Solaris machine. I got an error about Xinerama. I toggled it off and it then worked. So, it appears there is a problem with Xinerama. Here's what I used:

/usr/X11R6/bin/Xquartz -depth 24 -query "hostname or IP you are connecting to" -xinerama
