I use x11vnc (net/x11vnc), as it doesn't require loading anything into
the X server itself--it's a standard X client.

From there, it wouldn't be difficult to hack together something that
starts x11vnc when the X server starts up. XDM and GDM tend to store
their X authority files in easy-to-find locations.

Re: VNC server embedded into Xorg server

Hi,

Sorry for jumping in the middle of the thread.

 There was a port called net/vnc that contained a vnc.so file. That file
 could be loaded into the Xorg server and then I was able to monitor the
 X desktop with VNC.
 
 Now I'm using gnome, and gnome2-fifth-toe installs tightvnc. It
 conflicts with net/vnc. So I cannot install net/vnc. What other options
 I have to run an X server?

I would:

- deinstall net/vnc
- install gnome and let it install tinyvnc
- manually deinstall tinyvnc
- install net/vnc

 The only extra wish is that the X server must be able to start
 automatically, e.g. without logging into gnome. I need this because the
 X server will be located at a distant location and I have to be able to
 use it after a system restart.

Especially with gnome, the X server starts before you do any
authentication, when gnome present the loggin window, X has already
started.

To do X over vnc remotely, you need quite some amount of
bandwidth. Are you sure you need a graphical access?

X protocol is designed natively to run over the network, so you may
not need vnc. With X you can have an application running on your
remote computer, with the display coming to your desktop machine (if
your desktop machine is some Windows thing, there are good X
emulators for Windows).

If you really want to keep your setting, there should exist a gnome
startup script that you can hack to run vnc somewhere between the line
starting X and the line starting gnome authentication.

Best regards,

Olivier
