I have my BE setup on an ESXi host, however I cannot access the FE via a console. I have also tried to access it via VNC however when I try to access display 0 it refuses to connect, a can connect to display 1 via VNC.

Watching the boot there is a really quick message about XDisplay:0 but it disappears too quick for me to see. I have check dmesg and Xorg log files but cannot find the message. The only relevant I can find in the Xorg.0.log file is:
Code:
[    27.936] GetModeLine - scrn: 0 clock: 0
[    27.937] GetModeLine - hdsp: 1280 hbeg: 0 hend: 0 httl: 0
[    27.937]               vdsp: 720 vbeg: 0 vend: 0 vttl: 0 flags: 0


How do I go about getting my FE going on my Backend so that I can do setting changes updates etc.

Thanks

I have the FE working on my vSphere installation. I don't think I had to do anything special, but it's been so long since I did the installation that I can't remember.

I wasn't able to upload my conf files, so here they are:

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf

#
# Catch-all evdev loader for udev-based systems
# We don't simply match on any device since that also adds accelerometers
# and other devices that we don't really want to use. The list below
# matches everything but joysticks.

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "evdev pointer catchall"
MatchIsPointer "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "evdev"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "evdev keyboard catchall"
MatchIsKeyboard "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "evdev"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "evdev touchpad catchall"
MatchIsTouchpad "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "evdev"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "evdev tablet catchall"
MatchIsTablet "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "evdev"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "evdev touchscreen catchall"
MatchIsTouchscreen "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "evdev"
EndSection


/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-quirks.conf


# Collection of quirks and blacklist/whitelists for specific devices.


# Accelerometer device, posts data through ABS_X/ABS_Y, making X unusable
# http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=22442
Section "InputClass"
Identifier "ThinkPad HDAPS accelerometer blacklist"
MatchProduct "ThinkPad HDAPS accelerometer data"
Option "Ignore" "on"
EndSection


/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-automv.conf

Section "Device"
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "vmware"
EndSection



/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-vmmouse.conf

Section "InputClass"
Identifier "vmmouse"
MatchIsPointer "on"
MatchTag "vmmouse"
Driver "vmmouse"
EndSection

Thanks Jeff,

However this made no difference, if anything it was worse as VNC would not start, I have had to change my 20-automv.conf back to:
Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier             "Device0"
    Driver                 "vesa"
EndSection


Back it got me thinking, the remote console is not working, however VNC connection to display 2 is working a treat.

does /var/log/Xorg.0.log show why X doesn't start?
