Description Jonathan Kamens 2008-09-15 09:03:24 EDT
With current Rawhide, vino-server crashes when I connect.  The last thing it prints in ~/.xsession-errors is, "fatal error in libgcrypt, file visibility.c, line 1197, function gcry_randomize: called in non-operational state".
Comment 1 Jonathan Kamens 2008-09-15 09:09:37 EDT
Downgrading from libgcrypt-1.4.2-1 to libgcrypt-1.4.0-3 makes this problem go away.

Perhaps this indicates that there is a bug in libgcrypt-1.4.2-1, or perhaps this indicates that there is a bug in vino which doesn't manifest itself with the older libgcrypt version because the older version is less strict.  I leave this to the vino maintainer to figure out ;-).
Comment 2 Erik van Pienbroek 2008-09-15 15:34:05 EDT
I'm also encountering this problem. Haven't tried downgrading yet, but I've managed to get a backtrace which may be interesting for the package maintainer:

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2008-10-01 17:02:15 EDT
I see we have libgrypt 1.4.3 in rawhide now. 
Does this still happen ?
Comment 4 Erik van Pienbroek 2008-10-01 17:36:40 EDT
The problem is gone as of libgcrypt 1.4.3-1
