1 Dear Gentoo users,
3 I'm having VNC-related problems.
4 I want to make VNC'ing work the following:
6 I have a Gentoo desktop box with gdm+gnome, only one user. I'm using X
7 on DISPLAY:0 0-24/7 all the time. If I'm not sitting in front of the
8 box, I lock the session with the corresponding Gnome menu. So, X
9 DISPLAY:0 is always active with my Gnome desktop (sometimes locked,
10 thats all).
12 I have another machine with Windows XP. (Just on a little partition, I
13 want to install Linux on the remaining 70GB.)
14 >From this machine I want to connect using VNC to the gentoo desktop.
15 I've read the corresponding howtos on, with no success.
16 What works: I can connect to the Gentoo box using VNC, but it opens
17 DISPLAY:1 and starts an X session with TWM, instead of opening my
18 existing X session on DISPLAY:0
20 All in all: I want to connect (using TightVNC Win32) to the existing
21 DISPLAY:0 (gnome) session. Is it possible?
22 If isn't, the following will do:
24 a GDM session opens in my VNC window, and I can login to my account into
25 gnome. With existing user, with existing home folder.
27 I hope I was clear. Sorry for my English, I'm from Hungary.
29 Thanks in advance!
