Xephyr on Solaris

Searching for a better Xnest on Solaris, looking for Xephyr as a package or source to build, it turns out Xephyr is already included in SXDE.

location: /usr/X11/bin

simple usage example:

Xephyr :1 -screen 1200x800 -query localhost

This what's new in SXDE 10 guide is quite handy http://dlc.sun.com/pdf/817-0547/817-0547.pdf

Early signs of Xephyr -> ssh -> Xming on Windows seem reasonable.

ProGuard - new 4.2 version:

Evaluated the latest ProGuard 4.2 for our Java ME mobile client and it failed reporting a stack length had gone negative! Have reverted back to 4.1 for now, which seems to be working well. Will report the bug to the team.

Java ME, some J9 options worth remembering:

-Xint -> disable AOT and JIT, interpreted mode only
-noverify -> disable class verification checks (faster loaded on pre-verified code)
-Xnolinenumbers -> turn off line number debug info

Hi, Nice post.. Suggested command by you, helped me to fix my problem.
But the URL is not working any more.
I searched in the google using the PDF name but that did not help me much.

Thank you!!
