Xdm error 2817 SunOS 4.1.4 OpenWindows

Hi members!
I have installed SunOS 4.1.4 under QEMU.
I would like to use it with xdm. I launch xdm and get login window.
But when I have inputed user name and password,
XDM exited with the message:
"error (334): Unknown session exit code 2817 from process 342"
I have checked:
pid 334 is the parent process of XDM;
pid 342 is the child XDM ( 334 ->342).
------------
Also I have found a link in the internet with this issue,
but a link is down.
------------
Please, help me.

Why running an almost 25 year old OS? Would be running Solaris 11 or Solaris 10 (which is available in x86/64 versions) an option for you? You could use virtual box to run Solaris as a guest OS from your OS or install it natively as your main OS.

Hello!
I would like to make a short historical course UNIX and multiuser OSs at school
with real OSs (VAX, SUN, IBM and old MAC). I am planning to use SimH and QEMU
emulators.
Thanks for advice.

AFAIR for external software it was useful to make two symbolic links from the standard X11 paths to the equivalent paths under /usr/openwin.
And we replaced /usr/bin/df with the df that came with Disksuite (Sun volume manager).

Hello!
Thank you very much MadeInGermany!
I have solved issue.
Well,
1. in the file /etc/ttytab
- console ... off
2. in the file /usr/openwin/lib/xdm/xdm-config
added a line
- DisplayManager*startup: /usr/openwin/lib/xdm/Xstartup
3. in the folder /usr/openwin/lib/xdm
created a file Xstartup:
#############
/usr/etc/chown $USER /dev/console
/usr/etc/chown $USER /tmp/.NeWS-unix/N0
/usr/etc/chown $USER /tmp/.X11-unix/X0
#############

restarted xdm: kill -HUP pid-xdm (parent)

Before that:
I have created files .xinitrc; .Xdefaults in the users home
directory.

Now I am tuning settings of X and XDM.
