Just tried out xpra-0.10.3 on OpenBSD.
$ xpra start :55 Entering daemon mode; any further errors will be reported to: /home/anthony/.xpra/:55.log
$ DISPLAY=:55 xterm xterm: Xt error: Can't open display: :55 $ xpra info :55 connection failed: [Errno 2] No such file or directory
~/.xpra/:55.log attached. The interesting bit is:
xf86OpenPcvt: Cannot open /dev/ttyC4 (Permission denied) Fatal server error: xf86OpenPcvt: Cannot open /dev/ttyC4 (Permission denied) (EE) Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support at http://wiki.x.org for help. (EE) Please also check the log file at "/home/anthony/.xpra/Xorg.:55.log" for ad ditional information. (EE) Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file.
/dev/ttyC4 is the default X console on OpenBSD.
$ ls -l /dev/ttyC4 crw------- 1 root wheel 12, 4 Aug 13 04:11 /dev/ttyC4
I definitely did test on
OpenBSD before release, so it does work... though my
OpenBSD VM is ancient.
Xdummy fails to start because of permission issues on the console, reverting to Xvfb will workaround the problem. (see examples in your
I have no idea why
Xorg would fail to start with console permission issues on
OpenBSD. Maybe Xorg is a wrapper, or maybe it doesn't work properly when used as non-root user? (looks like an
OpenBSD problem to me)
Not heard back - closing.
