linux xdmcp

tried to start xdmcp query from the local linux for a UNIX client:
#/usr/bin/X11/X -query scs -once
A CDE login window came up on the local linux server. When logged in, nothing came out. Exit by Ctrl+Alt+Backspace and the following message shown on the screen (relevent part):
...
(warning) fglrx: No matching Device Section for instance(BusID PCI:1:0:1) found
Could not init font path element /usr/X1186/lib/X11/fonts/local/, removing from list !
Could not init font path element /usr/X1186/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/, removing from list !

UNIX: HP-UX 11.0 9000/785
LINUX: Redhat Linux 8.0 3.2-7
XFree86 Version 4.2.0/X Window System (Protocol Version 11, Version 0)
Thanks for any advice

Re: linux xdmcp

Very strange!
It works for me from RHEL4 to HPUX11.00.

Are you able to connect to this HPUX from other Xserver[s]?

No problem with Other HP-UX as Xservers. Also, I do not have problem in using this linux as Xserver by using rsh (HP-UX as remote client).

Re: linux xdmcp


check the font path and ensure you have font server running in linux.

check /etc/init.d/xfs and see whether it is running if not re run it. ensure u have disk space avaialble in /tmp and /

also check ur xinitrc file

Re: linux xdmcp

1. Plenty of space in / and /tmp; > 60G
2. Check ps -e; it's running; xfs script ok;
3. This linux has been used successfully as Xserver by using rsh to other UNIX station.

Re: linux xdmcp

Can you copy the entire contents of '/var/log/X*.log' to this thread please?

It should have some more information in it.

Re: linux xdmcp

I am assuming following, please correct me if i am wrong:

X Server is on Linux (RedHat 8.0)
you are trying to launch X query from HP UX machine (HPUX client)

is this correct? or is it the other way around.

one thing which i found is client connections are getting rejected to open terminal sessions. from your X server (linux or HPUX) add the client machine by xhost +
eg: xhost +scs

this will allow access from the client.
