RE: RE: RE: OWB in VMware
Sorry about the delay in responding. The steps you are taking look
correct. Things to check:
1) You indicate that you are getting a partial display, i.e. the simple
gui buttons show up. This means that your problem might not be the same
as Tomas', because he was not getting any display. Are you using VMware
like he is? If so, then it may be the same problem he had: Newer
versions of VMware need an updated Neutrino VMware graphics driver. I
have attached one to this email you can try.
2) Make sure that only one devi-hid is running. When you boot Neutrino
if you exit photon the devi-hid used by Photon may still be running.
3) I notice that you are getting the "Could not set cursor" message.
This indicates that the gf_cursor_set() call is failing. I'm not sure
why it would be failing, but you can try passing the -C option to owb
which makes it not attempt to draw the mouse pointer.
4) When you run "owb" are all the shared libraries being found and
opened correctly? To get this information, run owb with the DL_DEBUG
environment variable set, for example:
# DL_DEBUG=1 ./owb http://www.google.com
If this does not solve your problem, please send me the output of "pidin
arg" and a copy of your display.conf file.
