If anyone has anything working for a multi-user remote graphical user interface could you let me know what you used and how you set it up?
I have been trying to update my systems to 7.4 but keep running into issues running any kind of remote desktop.
The closest I have got is by having lightdm/MATE installed with the NVidia driver from NVidia installed afterwards (to replace the kmod- bits from epel.
The issues were
1. lightdm/MATE out of the box epel/elrepo. Remote connects and immediately crashes lightdm greeter (segfault). Remotely get nothing.
Code: Select all
kernel: lightdm-gtk-gre: segfault at 0 ip 00007f9b2d4d001f sp 00007fffe3f3e308 error 4 in libc-2.17.so[7f9b2d440000+1b8000]
2. Install NVidia driver from NVidia over top of above. It is still a mystery what the graphics card on the server has to do with remote access, but there you go. This starts up a bit slow, but does seem to operate. Unfortunately when I log off this does not disconnect like every other X emulator I have ever used. This may be an X11 fault, but it has been going on all this year.
Seemed to leave a few processes running so updated /etc/systemd/logind.conf and set KillUserProcesses=yes + reboot
Still hangs on logout, but with no processes left behind.
By hang I mean the background display, minus any icons/menus, remains on screen and the X-terminal software does not get a "last session closed" message.
3. Try tigervnc/xrdp
