Description linux01 2006-01-29 00:17:51 EST
I have set up a service in Fedora Core to allow me to graphically log in via VNC
(as per the directions in section 4 of
http://www.mythic-beasts.com/~hobb/main/index.php?pagename=VncOnLinux). Under
FC3 this worked fine, but in FC4 it seems that (X-Windows) access control is on
by default when I log in, so I cannot access many tools from the menu (such as
DNS configuration). When I try to run them from a shell some work, some don't,
but they all report X-Windows errors. If I enter "xhost +" then everything works
fine again. I can also enter "xhost +localhost" to fix the problem.

Is this expected in FC4 (and not FC3)? Is there a way to disable access control
on startup (or add localhost to the access control list)?

Just to be clear, this is not a bug.
