SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 3 (SLES 11 SP3)
Works with: Xephyr, VcXsrv ( working Windows X server implementation with OpenGL acceleration )
Does not work with: Xming
Use Display Manager and Window Manager that do not require 3D acceleration
For example xdm and icewm.
It is possible to do this by :
- editing /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager to show :
- editing /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager to show :
- and switching to runlevel 3 and back to 5 or by rebooting teh system.
As such, gdm and gnome-shell do not work with it.
