Problem

I updated one of my notebooks to openSUSE 10.3 (rc1), but I couldn't get the GroupWise client to run.

Solution

It turns out there's a problem with java and the 2.26.22 kernel.

The fix was to edit /opt/novell/groupwise/client/groupwise and insert the following on a new line after the #! /bin/sh header:

export LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=1

The edited file should look like this:

#!/bin/bash
export LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=1
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/novell/groupwise/client/jre/lib/i386:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}
/opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin/groupwise-bin "$@"
