I have a two suggestions for AIX: I had difficulties installing Version
3.2rev1 into NV 5.1.1 on AIX 4.3.1
first: Only installing with window manager CDE is possible. The
applications work with olvwm, but you can't install. I've not verified
wether you can install using mwm.
second: don't use /usr/OV/bin/ovw -config. If you do so, most new ctron
switch icons will become smeared out as if they've been washed?!
Kind Regards, Guenter Mueller.
