online help kills WorkShop 5.0 on Solaris 8

807578 Member Posts: 13,959 Green Ribbon
Using WorkShop 5.0 (12/5/98 version) on Solaris 8 (sparc), clicking on any of the first four entries in the "Help" menu brings up a "WorkShop Internal Error" box that says "Internal error; Dump core in /tmp?" and then WorkShop exits. The following appears on stdout:

DynaMotif: failed to find symbol in

The same thing happens when clicking on "help" from other places, e.g. from the Build menu dialog box.

This happens with LD_LIBRARY_PATH unset or with it set to include /usr/dt/lib, which is where lives. (/usr/lib/ is a symbolic link.) It happens both on the Sun console and remotely. I sent email to Sun about this but haven't gotten any response.

Has anyone figured out how to get the online help to work?
