[Norton, Jerry] Thanks for the reply Igor. I did some digging and found
a reference to SDL in a qemu.log. I guess nothing is wrong with running
VNC, it's just that I'm a little paranoid. I hate having processes
running that no one will be using and try my best to keep servers very
lean. I see it as a potential security risk.
Am I understanding correctly that SDL needs X11? I'm adverse to running
X11 on a server. I prefer to keep them console only.
I'm ultimately looking to run the guest OS's headless and running in the
background with a backdoor console that I can start up only as needed.
I guess if VNC or SDL w/ X running are the only options, I'll work with
them. I just want to be sure those are the only options.
