Subject:   WP60 for SCO in FreeBSD 2.1 - WP60 CDROM install problems
Message-ID:  <v0153051aacec9010ba3c@[]>

I cannot install WP60. Where is the problem?

xterm works OK. But wp install "Can't open display". Can you tell what
options etc. I have to add to GENERIC kernel config? Do I need

        1) options "IBCS2"
        2) pseudo-device socksys

I added 1) and 2) and got a lot of errors in boot about some duplicates
(mods, errors did not go to messages)


I did mount CDROM from our Sun and:

itu# ./install.wp
     Using /tmp/WpTmP1
     Please Wait
