Description Jef Spaleta 2004-10-21 04:35:51 UTC
Description of problem: A) Multiple logins on the same server (different users or the same user multiple times) enabling vino, the configuration tool lists server:0 in the text for all cases... even when really the display number is changing so i should be seeing server:0 server:1 server:2 etc... depending on the X display number that each desktop on the machine is actually using. The text in the config tool should update depending on the display in use on the server for that desktop. B) Multiple desktop logins of the same user on a server only. When vino is enabled on one desktop, its enabled on ALL the running desktops for that user on the same server. In large multiuser networks this could be an important case to consider. I would expect vino to be enabled per desktop and not enabled for all desktop displays that user is logged into. Should I file this issue seperately from the first? Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): vino-2.8.1-1 How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce Problem A: 1. log into gnome desktop as user1 2. start a second desktop using gdmflexiserver as user2 3. in user2's desktop use vino config tool... note which server:number string is mentioned. the number is 0 for me. 4. in user1's desktop use vino config tool... note the same server:number string as fore user2 5. connect remotely using vncviewer on another machine to server:0. note which user it is user1 or user2. connect remotely to server:1 and note which user it is. Steps to Reproduce Problem B: 1. log into gnome desktop as user1 2. start second desktop using gdmflexiserver as user1 3. in second desktop start vino 4. connect remotely using vncviewer and notice that both :0 and :1 are accessible to vncviewer even though you have configure vino in only one desktop Expected results: A: text in the config tool needs to match the display number thats actually in use instead of being stuck at :0 B: i would have expected to be able to control vino per desktop instance for a user. Multiple logins to the same central X server isnt unheard of in large multiuser networks, with semi-public computer labs.
Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 15:43:07 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now, we will automatically close it. If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.) Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled these issues to this point. The process we're following is outlined here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/F9CleanUp We will be following the process here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this doesn't happen again.
