Not to detract from the very interesting Celebrity DeathMatch currently
happening:I've noticed that someone else has been playing with UML, I.E. User
Mode Linux. They have even been using the same root_fs I started with.
Unfortunately, I've hit a bit of a stumbling block, and was hoping for some
help from the UML and Debian experts here.
I've expanded the small debian file system by adding a usr_fs, starting
uml-linux to mount this as /usr. I've also sucessfully added a swap_fs and
configured a network connection from the uml-linux to my own box. I've also
upgraded it to Woody from a recent Linux Format DVD.
According to the doc's, once the network connection is running, it should be
a simple matter of exporting DISPLAY=192.168.1.1:0 on usermode and running
startx. I've tried everything I can think of to get this working;
I've ran xhost + on my box.
I've tried editing /etc/xdm/Xaccess to allow *any to connect, even though I
'think' this should only apply to xdm chooser?
But no matter what I try, I can not get X on the usermode box to connect to
and use the X server on my box?
I know that Debian tends to be slightly more secure, Out-Of-Box than other
distributions, but usermode can ftp and telnet to my box.
When I try to run X from usermode, I still get connection refused errors.
Fatal server error:

This happens regardless of running as a normal user or as root on usermode.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
