Has anyone had luck compiling tightvnc on aix

I'm trying to compile tightvnc on aix 5.2

Following the readme on the tightvnc website I do the following (and get the following error):

-bash-3.00# xmkmf

Not sure what I'm missing. Just wondering if anyone has had luck building tightvnc on any aix platform?

Comments

  • Well, I have pretty much given up building tightvnc on aix at this point.

    However, I came across a nugget. IBM has a bunch of linux to aix ports available on their website. One of them is vnc. I downloaded it from here:

    http://www-03.ibm.com/servers/aix/products/aixos/linux/download.html

    Installed the rpm and I am almost there. Still working out the kinks of exporting the native :0 desktop though. Well, I don't even care if it exactly the :0 desktop, but it has to look exactly like I am logging in as a test user (mimic the :0 desktop).

    I found some tidbits here:

    http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?threadid=251975

    I did the following in the ~/.vnc/xstartup file:
    **********************
    #!/bin/sh
    /usr/dt/bin/dtsession
    **********************

    This almost works for me. It displays exactly what I see when I am sitting in front of that machine. However, I cannot logout. I need to be able to logout/login as different users to be able to even test my app. So I have to figure this out before eggplant is a solution for testing my app on AIX.

    Any ideas?
