    You will need to run x11vnc as root and also supply the mit-magic-cookie file via -auth option.

    I.e. maybe '-auth /var/lib/gdm/:0.Xauth', but I am not sure of the exact location on your distro, use 'ps wwwwwaux | grep auth' to find it.

    Also add '-display :0'

    So try something like that and see what gdm (or X server) does.
    I don't see "x11vnc" anywhere in the syslog, xorg log, or gdm log.
    There won't be any. We're looking for messages from gdm why it is exiting/crashing.
