For one of our client's server, we use Xfvb. It is launched in a startup
script in 800x600x32 resolution.
Recently they halted (violently I guess) the system. After the reboot,
we haven't been able to restart Xvfb, it kept failing w/ this message :
"Fatal server error:
Couldn't add screen 0"
So we tried to launch Xvfb in 800x600x16 and now it works like this !
Of course, our client asks us why did we had to make this change. Could
you help me to answer them please? :)
We used to launch Xvfb with this command line :
# nohup /usr/X11R6/bin/Xvfb :25 -screen scrn 800x600x32 &
I think there is a bug in it? What the hell is "scrn"??? And why DID it
worked? Now it works with
# nohup /usr/X11R6/bin/Xvfb :25 -screen scrn 800x600x16 &
