I installed a new version of dataviewer (2.3.2), and at the same time fixed the NDSSERVER issue we were having with cdsutils.  They should both be working now.

The problem turned out to be that I had setup our dataviewer to use the NDSSERVER environment, whereas by default it uses the LIGONDSIP variable.  Why we have two different environment variables that mean basically exactly the same thing, who knows.

 Dataviewer seems to run fine on Chiara (Ubuntu 12), but not on Rossa or Pianosa (Ubuntu 10), or Megatron, which I assume is also something medium-old.

We get the error:

controls@megatron:~ 0$ dataviewer
Can't find hostname `fb:8088'
Can't find hostname `fb:8088'; gethostbyname(); error=1
Warning: Not all children have same parent in XtManageChildren

Error in obtaining chan info.

Sadface :(   We also get the popup saying "Couldn't connect to fb:8088"

Sorry, that was a goof on my part.  It should be working now.
