KDE session on remote system

I have installed Mandrake 8.1 on two systems which are connected via a local lan. On the first system I login using KDE as my desktop. From the first system, I would like to perform a remote login to the other system and have the full KDE desktop displayed for the remote system. I have been able to perform a remote login via ssh and get individual KDE applications to display such as kword or konqueror that are stored on the remote system. I have tried startkde but all that does is give me a blank screen with my ssh window in the middle.

Suggestions would be appreciated.

would vnc not be up to your requierments? I can see that it's not an exact match on what you want to do, but you can configure it to be pretty much like it.

Question ungraceful solution?

nvc? never heard of? what is it?

one possibility I have working home is having a lilo (or grub) entry to mount root over nfs as in the Diskless-root-NFS-other-HOWTO. Huh? Not bad, but not good enough. I still haven't found a way to get a fancy remote boot as in Solaris or HP-UX. Any ideas anyone?

few things. with ssh you will need to add the -X tag and also have X11 forwarding active on the remote system, but you can get a full desktop IIRC via ssh -X user@IP.

vnc, google for it it is a very powerful tool. not very secure, but for LAN use it should be more then adaquate to help you get a remote desktop. it can if configured properly even give you the active desktop :0 so you can controll what is going on, but most people i know just have it set to :1 or some other desktop so you do not interfer with anything that might be going on on that workstation/server.
