Re: Automatic Login with two X servers FC5

Felix, it's time to give up the approach you are trying and do it
right. You need to run the VNC X server. I have it running as an
xinetd service. You can customize the screen size and everything.
This is how I set it up on FC4.
# default: on
# description: The vnc server serves telnet sessions at the moment; it uses \
#       unencrypted username/password pairs for authentication.
service vnc1592
       port            = 5953
       protocol        = tcp
       socket_type     = stream
       wait            = no
       user            = nobody
       group           = tty
       server          = /usr/bin/Xvnc
       disable         = no
server_args = -inetd -geometry 1592x1140 -depth 24 -query localhost -once securitytypes=none -fp unix/:7100

The sizes I picked allow me to run it in a full size window without
obscuring toolbars or needing to scroll when using a 1600x1200 screen,
for this service. I also have sizes better suited to 1920x1440. I
just pick the port for the size screen I want. It opens its own X
session so there's no need for the complexity you are trying to
establish for remote connections. You MAY be able to do this for both
windows depending on your machine siting and requirements.

That is the problem. Right noe the first x server
starts, loged in automaticly, then the second x-server
starts with the login screen of gdm. without keyboard
there is no way to login. I tried timed login, but it
does not work.

In that case, why need the second one to auto-login?
 You'd log in at
the remote end, if and when you need to.
