Approximately 2 weeks ago, I performed a fresh installation of FreeBSD 6.2, updated to STABLE world and kernel, deleted all packages and installed up-to-date versions of packages. The upgrade to xorg 7.2 was uneventful. (whew)
After using tightvnc, the user that started vncserver is unable to access an X window locally, even after killing vncserver and rebooting. All I get is a grey screen with a black crosshair until xinit gives up with the messages below. The first section is repeated several times before the program gives up. #####messages begin##### AUDIT: Tue Jul 17 08:34:12 2007: 853 X: client 1 rejected from local host (uid 1002) Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server Xlib: No protocol specified .. giving up. xinit: unable to connect to X Server waiting for X server to shut down ..FreeFontPath: FPE "/usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/misc" refcount is 2, should be 1, fixing. xinit: Server error. #####end of messages##### After this happened, I had to remove and recreate the user to get X working again. Root, who never executed vncserver, was able to use X before and after tightvnc was used. To recreate this scenario, I created a new user, "vncguest", with a .xinitrc file containing only one line: "startkde". Vncserver was started using the default options (twm, etc). After remote access was opened and closed, vncguest has been unable to use X. My normal user can still use X (kde). Any advice?
