X Window System for ND-500/5000.
|This article is a stub. You can improve NDWiki by expanding it.|
The X Window system is a portable, network transparent window system originally developed at M.I.T. It can be used on a wide variety of raster display devices, ranging from simple monochrome frame buffers to deep, true colour graphics processors.
The product contains compiled/linked versions of most of the clients and utilities normally contained in the X11.R3 distribution. The clients available are uwm, xterm, xclock, xcalc, xmag, xlogo, xbiff, bitmap, atobm, bmtoa, xsetroot, xev, xfd, xlsfonts, xlswins, xdpyinfo, xrdb, xmodmap, xset, xwininfo, xwd, xwud, xpr, maze, xhanoi, puzzle, ico and plaid. No X Window System display server is currently available under SINTRAN.
The following are required in order to use this product.
- ND-110063 Ethernet II Controller for TCP/IP (ND-500 or ND-5000 series)
- ND-110513 Ethernet III Controller (MF-BUS) (ND-5000 series only)
Operating system: SINTRAN III/VSX, version L, revision 2000 or later
- ND-211185 COSMOS TCP/IP Gateway, version C07
- ND-211327 TCP/IP Basic Module III, version B05
Notes: In order to run the X Window System with maximum performance it is necessary to have a TCP/IP Basic module running in an Ethernet III controller. Although it is possible to use an Ethernet II controller with the COSMOS TCP/IP Gateway, this is not recommended.
Running X Window System clients generally makes heavy demand on memory. It may thus be necessary to increase memory capacity.
