Re: Xvfb is not working


I can see some error messages on xvfb logs.

------------------------
X server: Error in /etc/X11/X10screens (line 612)
Device name invalid or missing after keyword "Screen".
X server: Will try default "/dev/crt"
Failure to open default device file `/dev/crt`.
Please either specify the proper device filename in
your /etc/X11/X10screens file or fix `/dev/crt`. This filename is either
non-existent or is not a character special file.

Fatal server error:


^[ggiving up.^M
/usr/contrib/bin/X11/xinit: Connection refused (errno 239): unable to connect
to X server^M
/usr/contrib/bin/X11/xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.

Re: Xvfb is not working

XVfb server started as daemon on :10

means it's started on DISPLAY :10 as opposed to
appsdev:10.0

so try not setting the display ? or setting it first to appsdev:10.0
