I have just upgraded to fixpack 2 on my SuSe 9 system and found that the
DISPLAY variable was NOT set in /etc/init.d/netnmrc . Folowing the link
supplied by Drew gives the fix, except the article says that this will
be included in Fixpack 2. I simply put the DISPLAY line at the top of
the netnmrc file. Here's that link again:
I also found that it insisted I applied Fixpack 1 to the Web Console
before applying Fixpack2.
As James says, it writes to logfile in <NetView drive>:\temp so if your
console isn't installed on C: then you need to fix that too. The error
code I was getting in the java window behind the web console was "bad
HTTP response code 503" - in case that helps anyone.
