This kit addresses the following problems: PROBLEMS ADDRESSED IN DWMOTIF125_UPD-V0100 KIT: o New Desktop problems o New Desktop login dialog does not allow language selection The DECwindows Motif V1.2-5 New Desktop login dialog does not show languages in the Options - Languages menu. The menu always shows only the "C" locale, no matter what other locales are available on the system. Without this language selection mechanism, language variant kits of DECwindows Motif will not work, because the user cannot select the language to be used in the New Desktop session. This problem is fixed in the remedial kit. o New Desktop session does not start if default language is not "C" The DECwindows Motif V1.2-5 New Desktop session does not start when the default language is not "C". After entering the username and password, the New Desktop window manager will terminate and the front panel will not be displayed. The default language may be specified in SYS$COMMON:[CDE$DEFAULTS.SYSTEM.CONFIG]XCONFIG.DAT or by selecting Options - Language - English (United States) from the New Desktop login screen. This problem results in language variants not working properly. This problem is fixed in the remedial kit. INSTALLATION NOTES: Install this kit with the PCSI utility by logging into the SYSTEM account, and typing the following at the DCL prompt: PRODUCT INSTALL DWMOTIF125_UPD /SOURCE=[location of Kit] The kit location may be a tape drive, CD, or a disk directory that contains the kit. Additional help on installing PCSI kits can be found by typing HELP PRODUCT INSTALL at the system prompt. In order to make use of the fixes within this remedial kit, you will need to do one of the following things after the installation is complete. If you did not disable the use of shared linkage sections before starting DECwindows by defining the logical name DECW$IGNORE_SHARE_ADDRESS to TRUE, you will need to reboot the system after installing the kit. If you did disable the use of shared linkage sections, you will need to restart DECwindows by issuing the following command after the installation is complete. @SYS$MANAGER:DECW$STARTUP RESTART
