Just one question about X config: What to give for mouse access? Do we have to
start a special mouse driver to have a /dev/mouse?
join the openqnx mailing list on specific questions on the XFree86 setup.
Back to my original problem!
I think that it could be possible to run photon and vncserver as we run a X
server without graphic chip access.
yes, you can photon and vncserver. but xdm is a different story.
Anyway, I tried in text mode to start xdm. no error but unable to get a login
window on the viewer (NT).
I’ve never tried xdm with vncserver (why would you need that? vncserver/client
has its own logon/auth screen). that’s why I suggested posting to vnc
mailing list to see if this is possible at all.
I tried xdm -debug 1 and I get the same error about SocketCreateListener!
I don’t know why does it try to start a X server on display 0 as the line
that explains the error. photon/xphoton alreadys listens at display 0 (6000)
so you get the SocketCreateListener error.
DisplayManager.server is commented. According to the doc it should only listen
for XDMCP requests!
My guess is xdm needs to start the graphics (X server) and then attache
itself as a X client.
After that it display ‘waiting for something’ but start a viewer does nothing!
again I would suggest checking with the vnc mailing list to make sure
it is possible to run xdm with vnc before spending lots of time.
