Procadam install, now no Xwindows

   Env: 3.2.5, ProCADAM
   Desc: You re-installed your system from the mksysb due to Xwindows
        problem when you installed PROCADAM. Everything was
        working fine on the system. A re-installation of PRO-CADAM
        has done something to the system and can no longer get Xwindows
        running error messages are:
        xinit: 1362-003 Xserver can't open rgb database /usr/lib/X11/rgb
        1356-824 xinit: unable to start Xserver
        1356-811 unable to connect to xserver
        1356-8__ xinit: no such process (Error No. 3:i)
        1356-803 Xinit server error


        Went through the below steps to resolve problem.
 Command:    'startx'   Result:    No error message but no Xsession.

 Command:    'aixterm'  Result:    1363-008 Xserver named was not found.

Checked customer's DISPLAY variable
  Command:    echo $DISPLAY  Result:     nothing was set-up
Set the customer's DISPLAY variable  Command:    export DISPLAY=\:0

Tried X again   Command:        'aixterm' 
        Result: 1363-008 Xserver named was not found.

Need to verify that /usr/lib/X11 link is on system. The file did not even
exist, therefore link from /usr/lpp/X11/lib/X11 to /usr/lib/X11 was missing.
Issued the following command:
ln -s /usr/lpp/X11/lib/X11/ /usr/lib/X11

When doing an 'aixterm' this time an X session started. Issue resolved.
