Thanks for that, been looking for the -dontdisconnect option, which is undocumented! I configured an Xvnc as the Xserver by doing the following :-
Install RealVNC v4 (Beta)
##In /etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess I uncommented the line below
* #any host can get a login window
##In /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config I commented out the line below
! DisplayManager.requestPort: 0
##In /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf I have the following set
##In /root/.vnc/xstartup comment out any lines and add the following entry
[-r $HOME/ .Xresources ] && xrdb
xsetroot - solid grey
exec gnome-session &
##copy the vnc.so module to /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions
##In /etc/X11/XF86Config add the following under the "Screen" section
Option "passwordFile" "/root/.vnc/passwd"
##And the following under the "Modules" section
##you should also make sure that the display modes are set
I think that was everything, although someone should probably double check it first!
