    Why would you want a GUI on a server? A server is supposed to serve content, not show a pretty desktop. imho

    What is wrong with a SSH shell? It does the same...

    Trying to setup a custom game server, and it would help to have gui. I have root access so i presumed this would be possible...

    I love ssh shell btw, my frist few days with it have been an adventure!

    Installing X increases the resource consumption of your server and introduces numerous security vulnerabilities. I would recommend avoiding going that route unless it is an absolute necessity.

    A GUI is far more productive. Plus you can start X only when you need it or modify the runlevels.

    installing X on a game server is a bad idea.

    On top of that WHY? you'll end up opening a shell session in X to get anything done anyway, why not just use a shell to start?

    I think you should use X/KDE with VNC.
    This is based on installing the stuff to manage TrixBox but it worked for me when I used it.

    First, follow these instructions: http://www.trixbox.org/modules/newbb...d=1389&forum=7

    Second, do this: http://www.trixbox.org/modules/newbb...d=1390&forum=7

    And then you can vnc into your box! simply open the vnc client and connect to "yourserverip:1" without quotes.. and you got it. HTH
