well ultimately, im looking for something that i can operate a headless server with. the server itself wouldnt be pre-logged into any x session (be it kde, gnome, xfce or whatever), so thats why im trying to get its x session into a window of my local desktop. i need to read up on x11vnc, and if it would do that, then i would open to looking at that to fill my need. cheers, -- Jonathan Horne http://dfwlpiki.dfwlp.org freebsd08 [EMAIL PROTECTED] dfwlp.com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
