I'm setting up xdmx. I've got it working, and am now trying to get it to start automatically once both display server boot.
I want to avoid using xinit to start the backend X because I don't want xterm to run when I'm going to start xdmx.
But when I run just X and not xinit, I can't display from a remote host:
displayhost:~ # X & displayhost:~ # export DISPLAY=:0 displayhost:~ # xhost + clienthost:~ $ export DISPLAY=displayhost:0 clienthost:~ $ xterm No protocol specified No protocol specified No protocol specified No protocol specified xterm Xt error: Can't open display: questek0.local:0
If I run
netstat -l on the displayhost, I can see that it is listening on port 6000. I can also telnet to the displayhost port 6000 from the clienthost, so I don't think it is a network issue.
How can I get the above to work?
