Patch Xvnc to remove old work-around no longer needed that causes problems with GDM none

Description Dax Kelson 2002-10-31 04:04:05 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
It is possible to configure a display manger to launch Xvnc instead the regular
Xserver. This works with xdm for example, but not with gdm.

Looking into it I found an old hack that was applied to Xvnc to work around a
LinuxThreads bug that is no longer needed. Removing this hack makes Xvnc and gdm
work together.

Here is the patch.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure GDM to launch Xvnc
2.Notice that it doesn't work
3.Apply patch, recompile Xvnc, it now works.

Actual Results:  n/a

Expected Results:  n/a
