I'm trying to use Colinux with VNC in windows 2000. I've done all the th=
ings are described in "Getting started long" and in "XCo Linux" for use "=
VNC without XDMCP".
When I launch the command:
vncserver :1 -geometry=
1024x768 -depth 16
the output is:
xauth: (argv):1: bad display nam=
e "colinux:1" in "add" command
New 'X' desktop is colinux:1
plications specified in /etc/X11/Xsession
Log file is /root/.vnc/colinux=
When I use VNC VIEWER to connect to 192.168.0.40:1 =
I can loogin but then I can only view a gray screen with mouse and nothin=
g else happens.
Thanks for help.

These are my notes on getting VNC to work on win2k using a slightly
older version of the colinux binaries and the debian root filesystem:
The key commands are that one needs to install a window manager (I
happen to have used fluxbox, but kde, gnome, tab, etc. should world
apt-get install x-window-system-core vncserver fluxbox xterm
and one needs to modify the ~/.vnc.startupx to point to that window
mkdir ~/.vnc && echo -e '#!/bin/bash\nfluxbox &' > ~/.vnc/startupx
Hope this helps and let us know how things go.
