I would guess that the Java Runtime is the reason for the dependencies on the X, Motif & CDE library packages, since there aren't separate packages for "Just enough JRE to run-non-GUI Java apps" and "JRE support for Java GUI apps". Those libraries are for X clients, so would also be needed if you want to ssh to the machine and remote display a GUI app back to another computer - if you're on Solaris 10 or later, the X servers for local display are in SUNWxorg-server and SUNWxsun-server, which didn't appear to be in your list. -- -Alan Coopersmith- alan.coopersm...@sun.com Sun Microsystems, Inc. - X Window System Engineering _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
