infinite loop on login

when I log-on to a sunOP unix system, a script runs and asks me to press 'q' to exit.
when I run the xstart program, at that time it enters to an infinite loop with strange (and infinite) message, and I cannot access the terminal....
please help!

Re: infinite loop on login

The Xstart brings up a read-only window that shows automatic login process. When your shell script has a special command that requires user input, the automatic login may fail.

To fix the problem, choose TELNET protocol in the Xstart and enter the following line into the Command box:


This will allow you to enter keys during login. After successful login, you should run an xterm explicitly at the prompt such as:

$ xterm &

This manual login is supported from v1.3.9.8 Build 6.

Hope to solve the problem.
