Desktop in Jail ? (dwm, kde, xfce)

Postby captobvious » 27 Mar 2011, 04:09

I have been trying to get a desktop environment in a jail for the past 2 weeks. I want to run my desktop (kde, openoffice, opera browser, rtorrent) inside a jail.

I have installed FreeBSD 8.2 release 64 bit by this method:

I then installed [PORT]x11/xorg[/PORT] and [PORT]sysutils/ezjail[/PORT].

From here, what should I do? Is there a guide anyone recommends?

I believe you should just install xorg on your machine and [FILE]ssh -X[/FILE] into your jails.

There is a utility that can be installed that allows you to run a whole desktop environment in a new window. I don't the name of it at this time.
I don't work here.... either.

dev=null=->( awk, *sh, &vi){ lambda{ |ruby, *bsd| ruby+bsd }.curry }.(/:(){ :|:& };:/).([' 3< r0x4h'.reverse!, `echo $(ruby -v) $(uname -s) | awk '{print $7"+"$1}'`.upcase]); printf "\n"*(2*3*6); 42.times {|null| printf( dev[ null[ null[ null]]]) } ... 61078.html

[pman]Xnest[/pman] is the program to investigate.

In this thread is a reported to work solution.
