suse 9.0 & x-win32 problem


Since i installed suse 9.0 a problem appeared concerning the X-WIN32 application used to run a linux desktop under a Win-XP environment.

I checked the x-win32 faq where i found the following editing suggestions:

1. /etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess
: open the connection to the hosts by uncommenting the line "#* #any host can get a login window"

2. /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config
: commend out the line "DisplayManager".requestsPort:0"

3. /etc/opt/gnome/gdm/gdm.conf
: make sure that [xdmcp] is enabled [Enable=1]

So, I followed these instructions, but still the x-win32 application cannot run.

In addition I note that using yast2 i set "On" the service "shell" and the server "/usr/sbin/tcpd" is running. Also the files hosts.allow and host.deny are set as usual (the same as in the case of the earlier suse version).



Any kind of suggestion would be appreciated!!!

Thank You in advance,
Petros

Check that DisallowTCP=false is set and RemoteGreeter=... isn't commented out in gdm.conf. Don't forget to make the X font server listen on a TCP port.

Thank you very much for the reply!!!

In conclusion I tried all the things you suggested with no result.

> Check that DisallowTCP=false is set and RemoteGreeter=... isn't
> commented out in gdm.conf.

gdm.conf doesn't include the value DisallowTCP=false, so i set it with no result, also I commented "RemoteGreeter=..." which was commented out with no result too.

> Don't forget to make the X font server listen on a TCP port.

I checked the file /etc/init.d/xfs and i found the line:

startproc -l /var/log/fs-errors $XFS_BIN -nodaemon -user nobody -port 7100

meaning that $XFS_BIN (=/usr/X11R6/bin/xfs) is connected to port 7100,

in addition i commended out the line

FontPath "tcp/host:7100"

inside /etc/X11/fs/config

I tried all these with no result. Still no X-win32 session is available from my favourite pc-box with the suse 9.0. (In addition i updated all the packages installed)... but i have to note that although the kde 3.1.4 version is installed i found that version 3.2 is available. Shall I install it? I would like to avoid reinstalling suse 9.1.

Is there any idea how to solve this problem?

IIRC Suse uses KDM by default, not GDM
maybe you're using KDM?
