Yesterday, my newly-installed OES Linux server was sitting on 100% CPU

all the time, with somewhere between 4 and 10 novell-xsrvd processes
chewing it all.

I looking at /etc/init.d/novell-xsrvd, there is mention of a config
utility /opt/novell/xtier/bin/xsrvcfg, trying to run this, i got the

/opt/novell/xtier/bin/xsrvcfg: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I found that lives in /opt/novell/xtier/lib, so i added
this to a new file in /etc/, along with a number of other

library directories i found in /opt/novell:

I'm not sure whether all of these are required, but since they all
have .so files or symlinks in them and were not in /etc/
already, i added them, and ran ldconfig.

After this, /etc/init.d/novell-xsrvd started without causing the
novell-xsvrd processes to run at 100%.

Moral of the story: *more spit and polish required, Novell!*
