Linux : Running VNC server on Fedora 8

The problem

The gnome menu is being displayed but is not clickable from a vnc viewer session.

The solution

Hi again all,

I have determined that a solution (albeit a bit crude) to this is to start your headless box in runlevel 3 (init 3) and then run gdm --no-console. This effectively (as I understand it) runs GDM in the background, and allows VNC to work fine.
