Help CDE just crashed!
Thu Jan 30 19:06:01 2003
I have been using VNC 3.3.6 for some time now, and approximately after three weeks of the server being started on my Sun workstation I experience a crash of CDE. Or at least that is what it looks like.
I have four workspaces set up, in each one I maybe have three xterminals running, with some application running (graphics intensive). I then go to open another Xterm and bang, CDE crashes and all my workspaces have gone and reduced to just one workspace. All the windows are now sitting on top of each other, I am able to click on each xterm that is visible and type but I can't minimize them. Because some Xterms are hidden and I can't minimize the ones on top I can't access all of them.
This has just happened to me and I have some applications that have been running for three days and are not finished. Because I can't select the windows individually these three day jobs have now been wasted.
This is really frustrating but I can't see how to debug this problem, it happens so infrequently.
Has anyone seen this before and does any one know if it is possible to re-start CDE without loosing all my open windows and Xterms ?
BTW I am running on a SunBlade1000, Solaris 8
