Re: [K12OSN] Remote X Session from Windows XP Client



Unless X is already a part of your environment, I think what you'd
rather do is use VNC.  Get tightvnc and install it on your windoze
machines.  It can fun full-screen and is easier than configuring X.

I just got the GDM stuff configured for my machine.  Disable your
firewall while you're debugging the other stuff.  It was also unclear
what was necessary to have gdm reload the config files.

Finally, another solution would be to have the machines dual-boot
between windows and a thin client.  I've been trying to figure that
one out, but I'll start another thread for that.

While I have successfully managed to get a Linux box up and working (with quite a bit of help from this list!), it would appear that the tutors would prefer a graphical interface, rather than the nice command line I have provided them with.
