No GUI display on console
 
Hi,
A novice and tried to set up remote desktop from XP workstation using
VNC4Server. Have lost GUI interface on server console.
I tried to reverse what I did but still no display.

I'm using as a web server:

Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 6.06.1 LTS
Release: 6.06
Codename: dapper

uname -r
2.6.15-28-386

the server boots fine then displays a window "Choose a host to connect to..." which just lists a mail server on the network.

Don't know where to start looking to solve this. Any help would be appreciated.

The command to start the X server is 'startx' ( without the quotes ). Give that a try.

Success with that. I now have a GUI.
Thanks, Cliff. Much appreciated.
