x11vnc wont start
I'm trying to start x11vnc so i can 'vncviewer' from my win xp laptop (work
based so i have to let it be) to my beloved linux box at will from around
the house, but x11vnc wont start up.
Here is the last part of the output when i try to start x11vnc, ( i can post
it all but the parts before this seem mundane and not related to errors )
How can i fix this?

The "localhost:11.0" X display above tells me you didn't run:
x11vnc -display :0 ...
and so x11vnc is using your $DISPLAY environment variable which is
to localhost:11. I guess that is an SSH X redirection tunnel (e.g. ssh
So try it with -display (or delete $DISPLAY from your environment,
back to ":0" if there is no -display on the cmdline and no $DISPLAY
