Re: Fedora + LTSP + iMac (Was: Re: Setting up a file server for a diskless X-Terminal)

atm.

Can you issue

startx --query IPADDRESS :1

from the iMac?  I assume you have already installed the X11 from apple
and can issue a "startx" (or "startx :1"?) from the X11 terminal and
get the grey screen with the X.

I had this set up some time ago - an old iMac connecting to FC2 ala LTSP 4

If the Mac is running 10.3/10.4 OSX, grab the free NX client at http://www.nomachine.com/download-client-macosx.php and run it against freenx on fedora. Unless the reason you want to run as a thin client is that it won't boot anymore... There are lots of advantages compared to a normal remote X session.
