Description of problem:
The documentation describes troubleshooting X server problems. However, the solutions provided do not generally apply to the PSeries hardware, which is headless.
It is unclear, generally, how to get a graphical user desktop on a headless system if you did not, or cannot, use/install VNC.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH AS v 4 on P570 in partitioned environment
Actual Results: Allows access to the system via SSH, etc. Can export the DISPLAY variable and launch and xterm via SSH X tunneling. However, you cannot "startx" (it is not possible to do a graphical login).
Expected Results: Other methods should be provided (ex xdm with remote cygwin X desktop). Preferably via SSH X tunnel.
