Solaris Pre-requisites

Motif RunTime Kit

Pro/PLASTIC Advisor on Solaris 2 requires the Motif 1.2.2 RunTime kit to be installed.
The error message below occurs if the Motif RunTime kit is not installed, or is not in a standard directory.

ld.so.1: fatal: libXm.so.3: Can’t open file: errno=2
The package name of the Motif RunTime kit is SUNWmfrun. Use the following to determine if the kit is already installed:
#pkginfo -1 SUNWmfrun
If the kit is not installed, the above command will generate the following error:
ERROR: information for “SUNWmfrun” was not found
In this case, you should install that package from your Sun Solaris installation media. Refer to your Sun Solaris Installation Guide. If the kit is already installed, it must be in a non-standard directory. You need to find out where the libXm.so.3 file resides. The default is /usr/dt/lib. To use the Xm library from a non-standard directory, you need to:
% setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH [directory path of libXm.so.3]
so that Pro/PLASTIC Advisor software knows where to find the library.
OpenGL RunTime
Pro/PLASTIC Advisor requires OpenGL 1.1.1 runtime libraries. You must first install the following Solaris packages:
  • SUNWglrt Solaris OpenGL Runtime Libraries
  • SUNWglwrt Solaris OpenGL Widget Library
  • SUNWglrtu Solaris OpenGL Platform Specific Runtime Libraries
  • SUNWffbgl Creator Graphics (FFB) OpenGL Support
