Description

On current sid (at least when using GDM, not sure if the other DM's have caught up yet) X runs as non-root, and our usual ways to detect if :0 is used don't work, so we try to start Xvfb on that display and it fails and then start_xvfb runs sleep 1 in an endless loop. I haven't found another way to identify whether a display is in use yet.

History

#1 Updated by intrigeri almost 4 years ago

I've just seen that again. /tmp/.X11-unix/X0 doesn't exist (anymore?) even though my $DISPLAY is :0. sudo touch /tmp/.X11-unix/X0 works around the problem temporarily here.
