Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 109699
Gnome desktop via VNC freezes changing hostname
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:33 EST
Description of problem:
I configured VNC to serve up Gnome when I connect. I click the Start
Here button navigating to network settings. I had defined the
hostname during installation to simply DeathRow. Trying to change it
to DeathRow.rownetco.com the VNC session becomes unusable. The
pointer changes from an arrow to a single dot. The commands I type
actually are executed but the screen does not update. If I close the
VNC session then reopen it the session picks up where I was last.
This happes with a terminal session as well. I right click on the
desktop, select new terminal. When it opens I type switchdesk but
nothing echos in the terminal session. Close / reopen VNC and the
switchdesk screen is available from the previous session. I switched
to KDE and restarted the server. When I launched VNC on windows
connecting to FC-1 I am prompted for a password and a subsequent
screen appears, all white, nothing on it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect via VNC
2. use Start Here drill to network -> DNS
3. try changing hostname to hostname.domainname.com
VNC session pointer changes from arrow to period ( . )
hostname gets changed
see above, similar wierdness in terminal session.
