Question Remote graphical login


Is it possible to log in remotely and get the desktop rather than a console?
I tried NX from Nomachines but there are problems with my installation.
VNC requires the graphical interface is already running.
Thanks.

well you obviously know that is is possible if you're stuck installing freenx. freenx is very good, and gets very close to windows remote desktop functionality, i'd strongly recommend revisiting it. outside of that you could use an xdmcp client, which is historically the way this should be done, but that's normally a little compliated, primarily in terms of getting a decent client on the windows side, like xwin32.
