I have changed something but I'm not quite sure what.
Fedora Core 5 machine. fully updated with yum which may have caused this problem...
For a while now I have been using vnc to look at and interact with the :0 display by having a
load "vnc" in the modules section in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file as described here.
My /home/david.vnc.xstartup looks like this.
# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
Until recently this allowed me to control the :0 display of my FC5 box at home either through my home LAN or via the internet with tunnelling through ssh from a Windows XP machine with PuTTy.
Has anybody any idea why my vncviewer only shows a black screen with nothing of the :0 display shown ?? even if I create anothe desktop with vncserver and try and connect to that I still get nohing but a black creen with no desktop.
Any ideas anybody ???
Thanks in advance,
