Anybody has experience on using CSWGnome with vncserver in solaris 10
sparc ?

I installed the lateste solaris 10 on Sun-Fire-V210:

bash-3.00$ uname -a
SunOS firebird 5.10 Generic_127127-11 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V210
Followed instruction on http://www.blastwave.org/howto.html to install

The vncserver comes with Solaris default installation and it is RealVNC

-bash-3.00$ which vncserver

If I am using this xstartup:

-bash-3.00$ more xstartup.jds

exec /usr/bin/gnome-session

I can connect to the box and get nice JDS gnome desktop.

but if I copy /etc/dt/config/Xinitrc.CSWgnome as my xstartup, I will get
message in log file when starting vncserver:

-bash-3.00$ tail firebird\:1.log

Window manager warning: Log level 32: could not find XKB extension.


and when I login using vncviewer, there is no gnome panel at all, only a
desktop with Computer, Trash, Desktop Overview and StarOffice 8.
Anything went wrong ? Or CSWGnome does not work with vnc ?

Thanks for your advice!
