I just updated the book to qemu-1.4.0 and now I'd like to be able to run
the virtual systems that can be created on a remote system. Using qemu,
running a text interface is pretty straight forward with ssh, but I'd
also like to run multiple graphical interfaces for testing.
Starting a system in text only mode would be something like:
qemu -hda /home/test/blfs1.img -m 2000 -boot c -nographic
Actually, running an Xorg based application via ssh should just be a
matter of running it. To run a remote window manager though, I think
I'd need to use a vnc client and start the remote system adding
We already have Vinagre as one vnc client and krdc is available for kde
within kdenetwork. (That file is in kde/add/kdenetwork.xml, but it
refers to linkend="kdeworkspace" which is not in the book. It seems to
be a work in progress.)
I also saw
which rates Remmina at the top.
Does anyone have any experience with any of these. The only vnc client
I've used is tightvnc, and that was some time ago.
