Solving problems after installation
This section describes some common problems that you could encounter
when you boot the system immediately after installing the software.
Cannot configure mouse while X server is running
If you want to configure a mouse after the installation
is complete, note that you cannot do so while the
X server is running.
Before attempting to run mkdev mouse,
be sure that you run scologin stop to
turn off the X server. After you have made
the mouse configuration modifications that you
desire, turn the X server back on by running
System not licensed or unregistered software
If you get the error
System not licensed
when logging in,
or see messages about unregistered SCO OpenServer software:
Switch to tty01 by pressing <Ctrl><Alt><F1>.
Log in as root.
Use the command scoadmin license manager
(or scoadmin license)
to run the License Manager, as described in
``Starting the License Manager''.
Confirm that you have a valid license for each
installed product by looking for the word
in the Licensed column.
To stop the periodic messages about unregistered software,
register your products as described in
Confirm that a product is registered
by looking for the word
in the Registered column.
Check that your system date accurately
reflects today's date by running the
command with no arguments.
If the date displayed is not today's date,
reset the date with the date command,
and reboot the system.
If the system clock was incorrect when you
installed SCO OpenServer, you will need to remove
your operating system license, fix the
system time, then re-add the license.
