APAR ABSTRACTS (U419371)
CHANGES MADE TO SYSTEM-CONFIGURABLE FILES (U419371)
The user must install the Release 1.3 base code, and the U436295 update
before applying this update.
SMALL PROGRAMMING ENHANCEMENTS:
ix44837 Code pages for latin2
and cyrillic and xfonts added. Fonts for iso8859-2 and iso8859-5 code pages
need to be added.
ix39461 The POSIX function
of localeconv is missing from the C libraries on AIX 1.3.
ix44813 The sample program x11perf
fails with VGA monitors.
ix44836 Cadence application
drawing arcs incorrectly; it fails when trying to produce a nand
gate which is a square with a rounded side [) and exporting from an RS/6000
to a PS/2 AIX. When exporting to a PS/2, the nand gate is open (ie.,
the rounded side doesn't connect with the square side). On the RS/6000
display the nand gate is closed.
ix44837 Code pages for latin2 and
cyrillic and xfonts added.
ix45509 xdt does not display the
ix45642 xga with 8517 not selecting
ix46406 xwin image adapter/a hangs
when using interleaf because the number of clipping rectangles were not
ix46632 svgaconfig file for monitor
specification for s3 and others. There needs to be a way to change
the chipset, resolution, clock frequency, horizontal and veritcal timings
ix46635 DOS disappears during hot-key.
When one has an X session on one hft and a DOS session on another, hotkeying
between the sessions causes the DOS session to go blank.
ix36872 16-bit XGA support for PS/2.
Added support to existing 32-bit XGA code to support 16-bit XGA.
Code was added to the X-server and GSL library to support XGA in the 16-bit
slot and XGA on a 16-bit planar.
ix36873 9515 monitor support has
been added to the boot menu, as well as support for this monitor in the
APAR ABSTRACTS (U419371):
ix31027 kill -TERM of X server does
not work correctly. When all hft's except the console are closed and X
is started from a script that invokes Xopen and at least one aixterm client
from the console, and the process id of X is killed (kill
-TERM $PID), X will die, aixterm will die and a carriage return
will be sent to console. This will disable the ALT/ACTION key sequence
from working, although the shell still receives keystrokes.
ix31642 X11 aixterm hangs intermittently
when it is first being started. If an aixterm is iconified there
is nothing in the icon. If the icon is raised, there is no prompt.
ix31644 Text data entered in an
X11R4 or X11R3 application window will 'disappear' when it is covered with
ix32095 X11 server ghost cursor
apears in many spots in an aixterm with the xga adapter. Ghost cursors
only appear with motif text widgets.
ix32465 When using "remsh"
to execute an "aixterm" on a remote
machine and displaying the window on the local machine, the output from
the AIX commands will not display.
ix33100 The 'zoom'
option is not visible when the alt+d
keys are pressed after dos merge is started with XMERGE=1.
ix33854 Model 9556 130 has a xga2
on board, and if xinit is run it returns
the prompt but does not start X. X starts ok in vga mode.
ix34222 Only root can use the Image
Adapter A (iaa). After installing the ibm_iaa LPP, only root can
use the iaa. The permissions on /dev/iaa
are set to rw-r--r-- not rw-rw-rw-
which is correct.
ix36533 DiaglogShell widgets cause
both the client and the server process to grow in size.
ix36536 mwm has been added as a
command line option to xinit.
ix36537 xga device interface is
extremely slow when drawing text.
ix36539 xmodmap command is not working
correctly to X11R5 server. Sometimes the keys are nulled out, and the keysym
is not changed to the expected character.
ix36540 X-server will not handle
being started from the xdm's controlling terminal, a pty, as the x-server
must be started from the console, or hft.
ix36541 Motif showFeedback resource
when set to all inhibits the resize or move feedback. The same .Xdefaults
worked fine on r121. All is the default but should not inhibit if it is
set. XRaiseWindow for the ShowFeedback box was added.
ix36542 X11r5 x server needs constant
screen refresh after using menus with the interleaf program.
ix36560 If a directory of fonts
is deleted, e.g. Speedo, 100dpi, or etc, and then 'X' is typed, the video
will hang on an xga system.
ix36564 IAA device driver is very
slow. The fix for this defect improves the performance of polytext8 and
imagetext8 if the fillstyle is solid and they are fixed width characters.
If the above conditions are true, X-server passes the info to the IAA driver
to do the painting of text. This has
significantly improved the text performance by about 20-25 times (verification
by x11perf). Aixterm uses polytext16, which now uses ppcPolyGlyphBlt,
as compared to miPolyGlyphBlt. This has resulted in the doubling
ix36571 When hotkey from X11R5 server
with the cursor in motion the next hft will be blank.
ix36573 When kill last client on
and X11R5 XGA Xserver and the server does not reset, screen stays black.
You can hft to another window. The old Xserver is still alive but asleep.
ix36574 Xserver memory leaks, creating
and destroying pixmaps.
ix36576 Cursor color cannot be changed
on Image Adapter/A.
ix36878 Paths in the showrgb Imakefile
incorrect. Make can not find the include files that it needs, or
the config directory.
ix36879 The Uil link needs to be
lower case along with the directory it should be linked to
(ie. "uil" instead of "Uil").
ix36880 Motif Menubar widget grows
continuously in some instances.

to xinit to start the motif window manager. To use this new option,
