RE: Remote Console Login



	What did you modify in PAM to allow you to access the display?  I've
done a lot of work on remote displays and I never knew about modifying PAM
for it to work.  I've simply redirected my DISPLAY env variable and run
"xhost +" on the target machine.

	As far as audio goes, I believe there is an X environment variable
that might allow you redirect the sound too, if that's what your after.  I
saw it somewhere, it might be something like "XSPEAKER" but I'm not really
sure.

	If you don't want to redirect the audio, but are just having
problems opening it, look at the /dev/dsp or whatever devices your sound
card is and examine the permissions and owners.  I've noticed that if I try
to log into a remote machine that somebody is running an GNOME or KDE
session on that I can't work with the audio device.  It appears like the
graphical clients lock the audio device for their own use.  I haven't
learned of a clean solution to this yet.  I generally just take ownership of
the device myself, or set permissions for everyone to write.  There's
probably a better solution than what I'm doing.

Hello, again!

I just read the message that I sent out to the group and I think that it
is unclear what I am trying to do.  Basically, what I want to do is to
be able to startup (via a remote login) a multimedia X11 application
that I wrote.  I want the application to run on the machine that I am
remotely logged into and to be able to access the audio of the machine
that I am remotely logged into.

I seem to have the system setup so that my application can access the
display of the machine that I am remotely logged into, but I cannot
figure out how to modify the PAM configuration so that my application
can access the audio device of the machine that I am remotely logged
into.

To be able to access the display of the machine that I am remotely
logged into, I did have to make changes to the PAM configuration before
it would allow me to start up the X server on that machine via my remote
login to that machine...  Thus, I am quite certain that I need to make
some other changes to my PAM configuration before I will be able to
access the audio device on that machine, especially since I can access
the audio device if I log into the machine via a local console login...

Take care,
Darwin

Subject: Remote Console Login

Hello!

I am having some extreme difficulty setting up RedHat V7.2 to accept a
remote console login that behaves identically to a local console login.

If I login to my machine remotely (via ssh) and then run startx on :0.0
(the local display), I cannot set run aumix (it returns with errors
stating that it cannot access the audio device).

HOWEVER, if I login locally and then run startx on :0.0 and THEN logout,
I can immediately login remotely (via the same account that I just
performed the local login with), run startx on :0.0 and access aumix of
the machine that I am logged into.  However, after some period of time,
aumix (and the audio device) become inaccessible to me.

Can one of you smart people please tell me how I can setup RedHat so
that I can remotely login to a machine and obtain a remote console login
that is identical to the standard RedHat local console login?

Any assistance with this matter would be GREATLY appreciated!

Take care,
Darwin
