Hey everybody, possibly a stupid question, but I'm not Linux saavy AT ALL, so I figured I'd ask and see. Are any of the distributions downloadable from the sourceforge page GUI? I have trying using CoLinx with both Fedore Core and Gentoo, only to get a login, then "colinux" command prompt. If I'm just being an idiot, could anyone enlighten this poor Windows victim? Thanks!
Have you checked the wiki on www.colinux.org. There are very detailed instructions there on how to setup from scratch...
Thanks, I'll give that a shot and see what I come up with! :)
HOORAY! Got through the network config (thanks wiki and help forum posts!), verified the connection, updated all the software, got it all worked out, then when I go to view with the VNC viewer, all i get is the gray screen and the "X" cursor. i have verified that the viewer is connecting to the server, and i've played around with view options for a bit, but no dice. i've dug around in the messages here and at wiki, but i can't seem to find the same issue. what am i missing (besides a fully functional brain)? Thanks guys!
I had the same problem, the solution :
Add the loopback device
Add this line to /etc/network/interfaces:
iface lo inet loopback
Add this line to /etc/hosts (if /etc/hosts file does not exist, create it) :
127.0.0.1 colinux.colinuxdomain colinux
this is from file :
Duh! I'm such an idiot...I added the loop back and all is well...i don't know why i missed that...thanks! all works beautifully now! :)
