  Top Ten Mac OS X Tips for Unix Geeks
Subject:   I bought the book and have a question...

In the book it describes how to install X and run vncserver for X Windows. That is great for X Windows applications but what about Mac OS X applications?


I was hoping that the book would explain how to setup the Mac OS X VNC Server to automatically startup so that I can remotely access my Mac OS X applications without having to run the program by hand every time the system changes users or is rebooted.


Or better yet. I was hoping that the book would explain how to attach a new process to another window server. Like you could do with NeXTSTEP and OpenStep. That way Mac OS X would really be for UNIX geeks.


Thanks,
Jason

    At the time we wrote the book, there was an abandoned project to run a VNC server on Mac OS X to get remote access to the desktop. Since that time, things have picked up again. Here's weblog entry from Forwarding Address: OS X that discusses the software and how easy it is to configure.

    To the best of my knowledge, there is no way to attach a new process to another window server. I'd be delighted to hear otherwise, though!
