[izpack-users] Problem Extracting on Solaris

I'm new to IzPack, but it looks like a promising tool for simplifing my
deployment of stand-alone utility apps.

In my first attempt I have been able to incorporate IzPack into my Maven
build process. The resulting self-extracting jar works well on my Windows
system. However when I move it to out Solaris box (running Solaris 2.10) I
run into problems.

When i first executed 'java -jar install.jar' I got a message "Exception in
thread "main" java.lang.InternalError: Can't connect to X11 window server
using '' as the value of the DISPLAY variable." So I looked through the
docs, and exported DISPLAY=":0.0". But then when I attempt to run the
installer it just hangs; absolutely nothing happens.

What am I missing?


We must begin not just to act, but to think, for there is no better slave
than the one who believes his slavery to be freedom, and we are in
no greater peril than when we cannot see the chains on our minds
because there are yet no chains on our feet.
