Hi all

I am running vservers on a headless fc4-x86_64 (the "real" server runs
at runlevel 3).

My idea was to install a "virtual graphical desktop environment" (using
gnome) in the virtual server, then let the users access this system
remotely using FreeNX.

Currently I am at the stage of bringing Xorg to life on my virtual
server, but I'm still not there. Xvfb starts and listens on port 6000,
but I can't get gnome to work. Do I have to install the Xorg components
on the main server too? Did anybody else already try out this setup?
Just in case I'm trying to reinvent the wheel...
