Hi everyone,
I'm having a heck of a time getting VNC viewer (running on any of my
Windows98 clients) to display my KDE desktop on my FreeBSD machine.
It displays twm just fine, but not KDE.
I've followed the steps outlined at

I've also tried making the ~/.vnc/xstartup a symlink to ~/.xinitrc,
which of course has the entry startkde.

Neither of these steps seem to beworking for me, VNC just ignores the
xstartup script from what I can see.
I don't see any error messages, or obvious problem in my vnc logfile

Anyone have any suggestions?
