Not sure exactly where this problem would be be addressed, hence the x-posting.
I've built a number of binary packages on one of my mac68k boxes and recently began using them on another machine. (Both run NetBSD 2.1.) Two of these are icewm-imlib and xscreensaver, just because it's amusing to watch the poor thing crunch along at .05 FPS on some of the more demanding modules.
When I run startx I capture the stderr and stdout to keep the console messages from messing up my screen, hence I am able to review them later if I have problems. I'm getting messages like the following (examples) which I do not understand after I had to kill X manually to exit the GUI:
antinspect: can't parse color black: using black.
Warning: Color name "Black" is not defined
bsod: can't parse color Black: using white.
bsod: can't parse color White: using black.
bsod: can't parse color White: using white.
Warning: Color name "black" is not defined
Xlib: extension "XFree86-Misc" missing on display ":0.0".
xscreensaver: 06:07:57: 0: unrecognised ClientMessage "_ICEWM_ACTION" received
xscreensaver: 06:07:57: 0: for window 0x25 (root)
IceWM: shutdown ... (sudo /sbin/shutdown -h now)
sudo: not found
xterm: Cannot allocate color yellow3
xterm: Cannot allocate color yellow
Other than "sudo" not being installed, I don't follow what the problem is, particularly with the colors. I have thousands of lines like that captured from stderr.
When trying to run aterm (my preferred terminal app) I get a similar error ''aterm: can't load color "White", colorID = 0, (29)'' just before it aborts. This package runs fine on the machine that built it. I assume these are due to a missing definition file somewhere, but what?
I've also built feh, which runs fine on my build box, but not the other: "X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)". This seems to be completely unrelated to the color thing, but I don't understand how it is that I can't share a binary package between machines of the same architecture. I'm not sure where to begin troubleshooting, so any advice welcomed.
Also, when xterm launches (from my .xinitrc) I get a message "utmp_update: /dev/ttyp0: Is not owned by you" which I never get on my other machine. How should I set the perms so this doesn't happen? I wouldn't think it should be owned by me (which is how it appears to be on the working machine), because then other users would have a similar problem, right?
