Actually, found the problem to be, /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf was calling X with
I removed this and now can get uml to talk to X on the host. I still need to
run export DISPLAY=debian:0
on the usermode box, and xhost + on the host first, but at least it works.
As for Xnest, I can run Xnest on my host box with Xnest :1,
but Xnest, then refuses to let anything else connect? Seems like the same
problem all over, except Xnest is not a script? I remember seeing. I think it
was on Progeny running Gnome had a menu entry for UML which would start uml
linux and export the display to an Xnest window on the host automagically.
This is what I would like to see.
At the moment, I'm trying to set up nfs from the host to the usermode so the
usermode can mount /usr/local/OpenOffice1.0 from the host over NFS so I can
play with the network install of OpenOffice. Unfortunately, the uml linux
does not have nfs compiled in, and no /lib/modules/<kernerversion> directory
to get modules from :( I am hoping that I can compile just the modules from
the same version of kernel source and install them to get uml linux to
reconise them. I know, it's a long shot, but I really would like to avoid
building a whole new uml kernel. Unfortunately, the root fs does not have any
libs or incudes??? I'm installing libc6 now to see if this is enough.
Thanks to everyone who helped my get this started and running. I might be
tempted to write up something when everything is done.
