setting display for oracle runinstaller - Linux / Unix Administration

Hi, i noticed that in the setting of display, we have the option of :0.0 Generally, it is as above. But somehow, i guess that we could change the last 0 incrementally. Could this be the number of xwindows session that are available? Please advise....

    Default setting display for oracle runinstaller

    the last 0 incrementally. Could this be the number of xwindows session
    that are available?

    Please advise.

    Do 'man X' and look for the section DISPLAY NAMES. The format is
    like this: hostname:displaynumber.screennumber
    Hostname is, well, hostname. Displaynumber refers to a particular X
    server, which I guess is what you are calling an "xwindows session". If
    you have more than one X server running on a host, then you would have
    more than one display number. The "screen number" refers to a
    particular screen belonging to a particular display. I'm sure it's used
    sometimes, but I can't remember ever seeing it anything but zero.

    Do you have a particular desire or need to change the $DISPLAY
    setting, or were you just asking out of curiosity? If you want an
    application to appear on a different display, you usually have to change
    the display number, not the screen number; ie, the first zero, not the
    second. Unless the display is on a different host, in which case it's
    probably display 0 on that hostname.

    If you run a window manager that supports multiple desktops or workspaces (CDE,
    Blackbox, WindowMaker, others) then the screen number represents the different
    desktops.
