CDE not starting

Hi guys!

Maybe this is an HPUX question but the thing is that I have an b2000 server with HPUX 10.22 on it and I can't have the CDE started.
But I can start CDE from an X-terminal (via XDMCP) but not on console...

Any suggestions guys?

Thanks and best regards,

Re: CDE not starting

Let's start with the obvious: has it ever worked? If not, does the server have a graphics card capable of displaying a CDE screen?

Suspect missing graphics capabilities(card or terminal).
