Starting Afterstep in Solaris 8

Hello Everyone,

    Just got through compiling Afterstep (latest version) and I made a
'.xinitrc' file with
'exec /usr/local/bin/afterstep' in the file. When I try to login as a
user (choosing Openwin
at the Sun login screen), I wind up at the login screen again. I can
however, start Afterstep
in 'fail safe' mode, but it is only in 8-bit color. My Ultra-1 is
capable of 24-bit color.
I was able to run Afterstep in Solaris 7 (on the same Ultra-1), but
since I reinstall with Solaris
8 I haven't been able to run Afterstep. IF anyone has any suggestions
please reply back. Thank you
in advance for your help.
