comment Logging into an RDS session from the command-line
No i don't have GNOME or KDE installed, just the core xorg packages which is enough to generate dialog boxes from the command line using something like zenity.

comment Logging into an RDS session from the command-line
If xorg is a graphical desktop, then yes, I have that installed. I then type startx and still end up on the command line, but the resolution of the text changes to show smaller text on the command line. I installed it recently in the hope that it might help resolve this issue. When you say classical switches, do you mean - instead of /?

I installed xorg, doesn't that give me a local xdestkop?

It's a problem because a new window is not being generated on my computer which allows me to control a graphical RDS desktop session.

Thanks, startx gets rid of the original error message, but I am presented with another. I will start a new question for the new error message.

I just want to initiate an RDS session from the command-line install of Linux. How do I go about installing an xserver, I tried sudo aptitude install xserver-xorg-core, but it made no difference.

comment Make FreeRDP prompt user for username and password?
Thanks for this. However, when I try xfreerdp /v:farm.company.com /d:company.com /u:oshiro /g:rds.company.com /p, it just gives me the documentation and all the commands I could use. Then as soon as I put the password after the p it starts working.

comment Snapshot of drive
Not being windows compatible is fine by me. So which solution is quicker to implement ZFS or LVM?

So just to clarify, to comply with the FSF guidelines, you cannot include closed sourced anything?

@FaheemMitha, how is that even possible, I can today, right now release software for free which is closed source...

comment 100% open source linux distro
Yes, I was specifically asking for a OS based purely on open source everything, as I get the feeling freeSoftware can include closed source software which is free. I like the idea of everything being open source so nothing is hidden. For me personally, open source is more important than free software.

comment Build xfreerdp 1.1
That was what I found, but didn't try it because of the 1.0.1. I'll give it a go anyway. Thanks.
