That is not the SAME. Since you have to have Linux logged in to a
session to start x0rfbserver. TightVNC on windows simply allows you THEN
to log in ...
Problem I'm having on recent Mandriva builds is to get x0rfbserver
running, since they have some other service locking display 0 and
preventing it starting, but their 'remote desktop' which is doing the
locking will not run from the start up menu - you have to start it
manually as it is a 'security risk' :(

The problem with this one is that the session running on display 0 tends
to lock access to the package manager and so you can't pigging update.

Only a little bit - Configuring a nice reliable FLAP server is quite
important ?
