We have a lot of RedHat and Fedora systems.  We have only  had video
problems on one of these systems.
To use get the graphics correctly running on a console for a Dell Precision
530 with a display of P992, one has  to
have initial display files that are specific to the system. I cannot create an account on the Dell Precision 530 and have the console display work unless the login directory is directly on the 530 with the specific
.gconf files for the 530.
I usually create home directories on one system and have the home directory mounted on a bank of computers so that the user can sit anywhere in the room
and log into the  same directory each time.
Say machine A contains our home directories and the 530 is not machine A. A
user sitting at the console of the 530
with his home directory on machine A and logging in, gets a mostly black
console screen on which no graphics appear.
I have only had this happen once, but cannot afford to have it happen again. Are there any combination of Dell stations and monitors that I should
avoid.

Can you explain in more detail how you are connecting from from one
machine to the other? You say "machine A contains our home directories
and the 530 is not machine A". How do you connect from the "530" to
"machine A"? Is it an SSH connection or something else?

Please explain how you make the connection, maybe it will help to
understand the problem.

I am running the computers with a modified NIS setup. Home directories are located on one main server, say machine A, but each computer has its own password file. Password files on Machine B show the home directory for each user except root to be on a partition on machine A which is mounted nfs. Password file on Machine A show the home directory for each user to be on one of its native partitions.

In this way no matter which system the user sits in front of, he logs into the same directory.


Thanks, Chris.
