(Sorry for attempting to post this multiple time.)
I was just thinking about that today, how strange. I have been working
on implenting a LTSP configuration at my office for our hp t5525 thin
clients and just spent some time redirecting displays with them. They
are too expensive $400 each for this purpose. Problem with LTSP is that
X and the other stuff takes about 55mb of ram. So if you go the path
of mvpmc (not sure if they already have this included or not) I found
this uClibc X server http://www.pps.jussieu.fr/~jch/software/kdrive.html
Does anyone know if mythfrontend can connect to remote display?
Inheirently it should be able to, I beleive this is an OS thing. Also
not sure if kdrive supports remote connections. Anyway, I attempted this
quickly on my desktop machine and was unable to connect.
On client machine did a quick test
# service iptables stop
# xhost +
# ssh mythserver
# export DISPLAY=192.168.0.10:0.0
No dice, unable to connect to X server ....
I tried to connect with another program and was unable to connect with
that either. I'll keep at it.
