Hi Steve,

I did try to install the v4b4.

However when I run x0vncserver I get the following error:

% x0vncserver

Thu Jan 15 17:04:57 2004
  main:        XTest extension present - version 2.2
shmget failed
shmget: Invalid argument

Thu Jan 15 17:04:58 2004
  main:        Listening on port 5998

I tried anyhow to connect to hostname:0 or hostname:1 without result.
Can you help me a little bit more?
Thanks a lot!
