Also of good use in trouble-shooting could be the log-files of X on the terminals, but they might be hard to get (only to be found in the ram of the clients). One trick here is to export a NFS share to the clients, configure one of them to runlevel 3 (in lts.conf) and set NFS_SWAP to N for that terminal, and then on the terminal * manually mount that NFS share * start X with /tmp/start_ws * kill X with Ctrl-alt-backspace * copy the log file of X, /var/log/X, to the NFS share Then you can access the log-file from the server (and mail it to the list). -- Hans Ekbrand (http://sociologi.cjb.net) <hans sociologi cjb net> GnuPG key: 1024D/7050614E (currently active subkey 03CE8884) Fingerprint: 1408 C8D5 1E7D 4C9C C27E 014F 7C2C 872A 7050 614E Key available at keyserver.kjsl.com Encrypted emails prefered.
