I've been working with UNIX, GNU, and Linux for over 25 years. I've done significant programming in over 40 programming and scripting languages, including Smalltalk, Objective-C, C, Csh, bash, perl, awk, m4, and lots more. I've worked as a consultant, systems administrator, customer support representative, project manager, trainer, founder/CTO, and lots more.


For fun I play guitar (acoustic and electric), build LEGO robots, tweak http://reiber.org and make random contributions all over the internet - see: http://bit.ly/reiber which just scratches the surface.

comment How to get x11vnc to run at startup on openSuSE 12.1
I don't think you'll find one. You'll want to chase the scripts that are STARTING X - look for whatever's running GDM. Once you find it, you can either (a) call your script and be done, or (b) code a generic "hook" that runs some after-x-starts.sh script if it exists, and submit that change back to the project.

comment why does chvt work fine as a regular user on a virtual terminal, but not under X?
I could be off on this but i thought the portion of DISPLAY to the left of the : identified the host? So, 0 aka 0.0.0.0 aka localhost, or 127.0.0.1 and possibly some others would indicate localhost, meaning it's a local display. I added NOPASSWD to sudoers and an alias or two so I can switch back and forth now seamlessly, but it's a hack. Still perplexed re: why it wouldn't be possible to fix this.
