I am trying to start a XServer in order to perform graphical renderings on the cluster GPU with Paraview. Since the cluster is usally driven by a task scheduler, the xserver is usually not running. For visualizations I need to start a Xserver in combination with the Paraview server.
If I try to start the XServer manually with
I recieve the following error message:
(EE) Fatal server error: (EE) PAM authentication failed, cannot start X server. Perhaps you do not have console ownership? (EE) (EE) Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support at http://wiki.x.org for help. (EE)
I tried to use
ssh -X and that works. If I try
glxinfo then it won't work.
I am logging in from a remote machine via ssh. Any suggestions?
