Running an X server on an intermittently available 'client' machine?
I have used X windows apps in the past and always used used the DISPLAY environment variable to indicate the x server the application should connect to when it starts.
However I would like to be able to leave a gui application running continuously and intermittently connect to it and use from another machine running an X server. Specifically I want to run Azureus on a mandrake box and use the X server on mac os X laptop to occaisonly fiddle with it (the laptop is not even present on the network most of the time).
I am currently using VNC to view the entire desktop of a windoze box with the mac lappy, but really its not satisfactory. And much prefer to replace windows with mandrake.
Does anyone have any idea, how I might go about doing this? Just give me a nudge in the right direction please.
Thanks in anticipation,
