That's dthello. It's a know bug on 64 bit Archlinux and no one has found the cause or the solution.

Not sure if anybody else is getting this. 64-bit user here. Upon startup, it seems to run fine, but a window is up on start saying

The desktop messaging system could not be started.

It says some more, such as edit hostname and I tried it, the command Hostname prints the hostname I changed it to in /etc/hosts and I changed it for this session too with hostnamectl. Around this error are various boxes, all errors, each saying "Could not connect to ToolTalk TT_ERR_INTERNALInternal error (bug)". Googling seems to print a bunch of results for Solaris and HP-UX.

Sorry, its not something I've been working on because I only run CDE on a 32bit machine. When I tried to install this package in a 64 bit VM I got an error message when the desktop started up stating that the message passing daemon couldn't be started. I don't know if the correct modules built succesfully or not and I don't have time to investigate further at the moment.

Is there any word on 64-bit support? Please update wiki page with details

I've adopted this package and uploaded an updated PKBUILD based on the previous work done. It works for me on x86 systems (not tested thoroughly on x86_64 yet).

One important point - you have to edit /etc/conf.d/rpcbind to add "-i" to the list of startup options to run it in insecure mode. NB - I have no idea how many holes this will open up in your machine's security - you run it at your own risk.

Sorry, i've changed my notebook to 64bit version. I have no other way to test this, so i'm disowning. Wasn't able to get it running anyway...

Check if you have installed xterm, also configured the hostname on the machine.
You may also need a dtsession in the directory /usr/dt/bin, look in "$srcdir/cde-$pkgver/programs/dtsession/"

To run /usr/dt/bin/Xsession and CDE is needed all of this .

Look if you have installed xterm ,also if you have configured hostname.
Also it may be that you need to have dtsession in /usr/dt/bin, look in "$srcdir/cde-$pkgver/programs/dtsession"

all these are dependent of /usr/dt/Xsession
