(What about Solaris 2.4?)
Both CDE 1.0.1/1.0.2 (which have seperate rpc.cmsd binaries; these
were merged in later releases) and Solaris 2.4 patches will be released
at a later date.
Be aware that when these patches[*] are applied, the existing rpc.cmsd
process (if one exists) seems to be killed in a *prepatch* script--that
is, *before* the programs are updated.
Thanks for noticing this; I've notified the persons responsible for
this patch; it will be addressed in a future release.
I couldn't begin to speculate about why Sun didn't make this a postpatch
script rather than a prepatch script.
Neither could I; it's a mistake.
