I've googled a bit on this, but so far have not found anything related to what I'm trying to accomplish....
I have 2 linux machines on my network. The first is Ubuntu 9.04 and the second is running Slackware 64_current. I have the Slack machine configured to listen for XDMCP requests and I frequently use Ubuntu's login screen (gdm) to run a remote X session.
What I would like to do is have the ability to toggle between both a local Ubuntu session and a remote Slack session similar to toggling between virtual terminals (ctrl+alt+f4, and back with ctrl+alt+f7 for instance). I've tried this by
root@DELL:/home/USERt# X -query HOSTNAME
which responds with
Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 0
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
and start again.
Is there something that I can edit, or a command I can use to allow two simultaneous X sessions, with one being local and the other being remote?
