My distro is centos, allegedly a free distro of RedHat. I ran startx as root and it returned
[root@wec-hou20 Documents]# startx
xauth: creating new authority file /root/.serverauth.1764
Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 0
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
and start again.
Please consult the CentOS support
Which, it seems to say is the server is already running.
So, the next step is to get kde or gnome runing? Also, how to find our how to set display back through my vpn tunnel to my local machine?
