vnc with SuSE and Red Hat
Posted on 2005-03-31
I have a linux cluster that was orgininally setup with Red Hat 7.3 I use VNC to log into the cluster from my Win2000 PC. This has worked great. I was able to start VNC sessions on two different computer, both hooked to external network, at the same time without any problems. My /home/.vnc/xstartup files contains this.
~/.vnc> more xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
/etc/X11/xdm/Xsession kde &
I have a common home directory that all computers see.
I recently changed one of the computers to SuSE 9.0 Professional because we have Opteron chips and are wanting to go to 64 bit. Now when I try to use VNC on the SuSE 9.0 I get the kde interface to come up with a yellow active text window, but get errors and cannot execute any programs. I have jpg files of the errors that I can e-mail. They basically say "The aplication Konqueror crashed and caused the signal 11 (SIGSEGV) I have installed Real VNC vnc-4.0-1.i386.rpm which uninstalled the tightvnc from the SuSE install. As I said before I have a common home directory that is using the above xstartup file.
What do I need to change so that I can run vnc on both Red Hat 7.3 and SuSE 9.0
