  • You want to start an X server on your home machine when you're at work? I don't think it works that way. What are you trying to do?

      Perhaps I replied too quickly to this.

      Yes, I was misunderstanding a part of the process. Essentially I was firing up a window manager (fvwm2) and then trying to forward a second window manager (sawfish -- RedHat 7.3's default window manager) onto fvwm2 by running "startx". What I need to do is run sawfish on my home machine, and then forward mozilla.

      That may, (or may not?) have been the point you were making. ;-)
      • Yeah, that sounds like the point I was making. :) If you start X on your work machine and just fire up an XTerm, you can log in to your home machine and run sawfish just as any other X client. (sawfish & should do it -- startx does a bit too much.)
