Hi all,

I'm trying to use VNC to log into my FreeBSD laptop from another laptop [why? to learn how]... gdm... Xvnc... xinetd... blah... blah...

I finally managed to log in using Xvnc and gdm. This is awesome. I'll be happy for days now. :D

Here's how: I found I was getting lots of weird file descriptor errors in /var/log/messages. Google tells me it's some subtle bug involving 6.2-RELEASE and xinetd. So I switched to inetd [note, no 'x'] and it worked perfectly first time.

There is a tiny fly in my happy ointment though. My Xfce4 settings appear to be different. Usually I use gnome-panel when I log in locally. My remote login is using xfce4-panel. Rather than go through setting up my desktop how I like it /again/, I would prefer to figure out why my local settings aren't being used.

Probably a good symlinking would fix this, but I can't quite see what I should be linking to where.

Any ideas?
