After five years of trying to arrange a student environment where they can run Self and complete an assignment, my department has finally installed a number of SS5's with S24 graphics cards. I was all ready to go, when I tried to run Self on one of these student machines and: ... Warning: A ui2 window is now using a private colormap; flashing may occur when moving the cursor between windows. Error: 5227889 is absent. Receiver is: a vector. X Error: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes). VM# and the UI window is empty. Since everything runs perfectly on other machines without graphics cards, or with other graphics cards than S24, I suspect that this is Sun's fault.
Now I could report the error to Sun in Sweden, who will ask Sun in the States, who might be able to help me, but I need Self in just one week. So is there anyone in this group who knows more than me about Self error messages/bugs in graphics cards who can help me?
