Well now I'm getting somewhere - I vaguely remember that. Since I had
no reason to say yest at the time, I said no. So I guess these are
more Solaris than Blastwave questions, but is there an easy way to
rerun the installer or ad the 64bit packages so I can see if it helps
?- BTW, it is no big deal to reinstall from scratch - maybe I'll even
figure out how to get the paths right in CDE. (There are a lot of nice
features to doing all this on a machine no one cares about.)  Also,
after installing and starting up FireFox and telling it to ignore all
the missing bits, it does seem to work - though I know it will crash
sooner or later.
