I am using vncserver on Red Hat linux 8.whatever is the newest. I am
using vnc viewer on xp. When I run vnc on my linux machine I can connect
just find to it from windows, however it will not let me run startx (my
gui) It says something about a pam error and maybe I don't have console
ownership. I am fairly new to linux and vnc, however I do know for a
fact that I have console ownership when I'm logged in as root. Any
suggestions would be appreciated.
