Hi, I'm a new user on the forum - in fact i'm a new user on Linux, and though I can normally make a windows server system sit up and take notice, i'm still a baby where Linux is concerned. I installed FC3 just this week.
I can't get vnc to start on a reboot.
- i've been through this forum & TCheung's extremely helpful primer and got things almost where I want them - the system is configured and will start quite happily using
[root@pvr ~]# /sbin/service vncserver start
Starting VNC server: 1:mike [ OK ]
This allows me to connect in on session 1 from a windows XP machine and run quite happily, so the software itself is configured fine.
I've checked that it's set to run at runlevel 3 and 5 as demonstrated here
[mike@pvr sysconfig]$ /sbin/chkconfig --list | grep vncserver
vncserver 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:off 5:on 6:off
I get a message during boot-up that vnc session 1: is already started - if that helps
any suggestions - as i'm now completely flummoxed
THANKS IN ADVANCE
(PS - yes, i know, i shouldn't use root unless i have to, and i also know that there are some security implications to using VNC on boot-up. Thx
and just for completeness, here are my config files:
[mike@pvr .vnc]$ cat xstartup
# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
# The VNCSERVERS variable is a list of display:user pairs.
# Uncomment the line below to start a VNC server on display :1
# as my 'myusername' (adjust this to your own). You will also
# need to set a VNC password; run 'man vncpasswd' to see how
# to do that.
# DO NOT RUN THIS SERVICE if your local area network is
# untrusted! For a secure way of using VNC, see
