Subject Re: Xvfb and Tomcat 4.1.18 tripping over each other
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2003 00:32:17 GMT
Just to clarify- it makes no difference if I actually access the portion of
the web application using AWT- in fact, all I have to do is START tomcat and
I can no longer telnet in to the box.

In my tomcat setenv.sh file I have set the display variable to talk to Xvfb,
i.e.

DISPLAY=:1.0
export DISPLAY

This is really got me stumped!
