First of all you should make sure that you have the latest 
version of Mathematica for Sun SPARC ( Earlier
versions will not work under Solaris 2.4 or later.

If you do have the current version then you might try 
using Open Windows (as opposed to the Common DeskTop).

If you need further help I would suggest that you contact 
Wolfram Research Technical Support (support at

I hope this helps.
