GDM with XDMCP and Gnome problems

Discussion in 'Linux Networking' started by Cédric Pillonel, Feb 10, 2004.

  1. I have Linux RH 7.2 and I want to remote access my linux box with an X
    client running XDMCP (XReflection on PC). I have configured GDM to enable
    XDMCP support. I use Gnome with Sawfish as window manager.

    With my X client I can connect to my linux box, I get the login window. When
    I try to log in, the login process waits quite a long time on the start of
    the window manager and when I'm logged in, I have no window manager (I can
    see the panel on the bottom of the screen and the it disappears, I think
    that the window manager crashes). Has somebody an idea why?

    On the server, in my home directory, I have the following
    '.xsessions-errors' file:

    XIM DEBUG: SESSION_MANAGER=local/sbe3221:/tmp/.ICE-unix/2078
    rep: received fatal signal: Segmentation fault

    struct debug_buf common:

    Backtrace in `fatal_signal_handler':

    Lisp backtrace:

  2. This is normal, xdmcp shows the programs (such as the taskbar) only.
