Interesting Issue and ?- VNCServer & FC2 XWindows Manager Error
First off, what a great site. Long time reader, first time poster. Tons of information and no abuse to the "newbie". Thank you.
I've spent quite some time messing around with different linux distros, and recently just plain fell in love with Fedora. With my latest install of FC2 I noticed an odd occurance, and I call it an occurance because it happened without uniformity,.
Distro: Fedora Core2
Kernel: 2.6.6 4kstacks
CPU: P2 450mhz
Video: ti4200 128 w/ 6106 drivers
Sometimes all of my icons would be displayed properly and others they wouldn't. In fact, when they did display properly, they were different icons all together. The menu would be a "Redhat" hat instead of a "Gnome" foot, and nautilus would show the correct icons based on file extension.
I had initially thought that maybe the amount of services running were too much for the system. Leading me to believe it would be a memory issue.
However, I noticed that if I initiated runlevel 3 everything would work fine...repeatedly. So obviously the variable was one of the services I had selected for RL5 and not RL3.
I had also noticed that a few folks here were experiencing the same thing. However, at the end of their posts there seem to be a lack of resolution.
The one service that seemed to cause this issue was VNCserver. Removing this from the 'startup' allowed all of my icons to load up properly and repeatedly. Although, the icon pathes were changes from /usr/share/pixmaps to /***/bluecurve.
It seemed to me that a completely different xwindows manager was being loaded when I had VNCserver selected. Why would this be?
Is there some field within the /.vnc/xstartup script that would cause this?
(note: I did uncomment the two fields as instructed, though those would only affect the remote system)
