Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have made a Brandz Zone with the Centos package from OpenSolaris.org. This works as expected.
Now I try to establish an XDMCP-connection from the global zone to the Brandz zone. I therefore did some config stuff to /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf in Centos.
This works partially: when I login as root to the desktop environment, open a terminal, do "#Xnest -query centos :1", I get a nice Centos desktop inside the terminal window.
But I don't want to work in a root desktop environment for obvious reasons.
So when I logon into the Sun Java Desktop as a normal user, and do the same thing: $Xnest -query centos :1
I don't get an XDMCP-connection.
This error appears:
X_mkdir: Not owner
Fatal server error:
Failed to establish all listening sockets
When I trace down the "X_mkdir" call through 'truss', it shows:
$truss Xnest -query centos :1

This rights issue is probably also the reason why an XDMCP-connection fails from the dt-login manager.
At this moment I've been fiddling too long with this issue; I don't see how to get on.
Any suggestions what further steps to take?
