We've been playing with XEN for some weeks now, using
pre-built domU images or making my own. So far, so
good. Except that we utterly fail to understand how to
"use" X11 with the domUs.

The domUs will sometimes be used to test graphical
applications, so we need to be able to do just that.
For example, how do we activate (and then connect to
and use) KDE (or Gnome, or any windowing environment
you like) on a domU ?

Thanks, and a happy new year to everybody,

From an X environment on your own server, you can run "ssh -X [domU-hostname]". Or, if you feel the need, you can use the vncviewer built into Xen itself, but this presents other management and security issues.
