Gnome XDMCP on server
I'm using cygwin-X on my WinXP-Box to access the Gnome-Desktop (2.6) on my
Debian-Sarge-Server (Kernel 2.6.7) over XDMCP.
My problem is that GDM has to be up and running to login via XDMCP (then
it works perfectly well).
But - as servers are - I don't have a mouse, keyboard or monitor connected
to my server. So GDM crashes after some trying.
Is there a way to configure GDM or Xfree86 in any way not to search for a
mouse (that's the hanger I guess) ?
Or - even better - is there a way to configure GDM for XDMCP not fireing
up a local X-Server ?
I know there is a thing called X over SSH, but I have many problems to
make it work (can't start Synaptic, always get memory errors, can start
gnome-session but after that I can't start any prog from Gnome-desktop
+ many many more issues) and I want to use XDMCP in my personal network
Any suggestions ?
Thank you, Rado
