Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting
It works with earlier releases. If I downgrade rawhide to the following rpms,
it works again:
The problem occurs with both nv and vesa as the main drivers. I could try
radeon as well, but this used to freeze the entire machine hard as soon as I
connected from a vnc client, so I won't even bother.
This problem with vnc started on April 10, as mentioned in bug 186442. There
have been X and vnc updates since that date, but none that fixed the problem.
This is fixed in rawhide.
