Description David L. Parsley 2006-10-31 11:13:59 EST
Description of problem:
I encountered this issue when performing a vnc install using vncconnect, it
reports 'Connected!' - but it's not.  netstat -t shows no connection, the
workstation sees no connection.  At the shell on the box being installed, if I
manually run 'vncconfig -display :1 -connect (workstation ip)' I get a protocol
error.  NOTE: this is on x86_64; it's not an issue w/ normal x86.
Here's the error:
X Error of failed request:  BadLength (poly request too large or internal Xlib
length error)
  Major opcode of failed request:  134 (VNC-EXTENSION)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  7 ()
  Serial number of failed request:  7
  Current serial number in output stream:  7

Also note this issue is actually likely with 'vnc-server'

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run 'vncserver'
2. Run 'vncconfig -display :1 -connect (some host addr)'
Actual results:
Error message, no connect

Expected results:

please, could you specify which version of vnc are you using?? I've fixed
vncconfig crash problem in vnc-4.1.2-4.el5 or vnc-4.1.2-5.fc6. Can you please
try to reproduce this bug with one of these packages??
Comment 2 David L. Parsley 2006-11-01 08:16:30 EST
These are version 4.1.2-3.  I'll try this out on the newer versions later today.
 Will the next RHEL5 beta/release automatically get the newer version?
Comment 3 Adam Tkac 2006-11-01 08:46:47 EST
patch will be avaliable very soon. Could you please test this package?? I think,
this problem is fixed here. Thank you

Comment 4 Adam Tkac 2006-11-07 05:43:09 EST
you can update to vnc-4.1.2-4.el5 in rhel5-beta2 now. I think this bug is fixed
here. Could you try to reproduce it??
Comment 5 David L. Parsley 2006-11-17 14:17:17 EST
ok, I was finally actually able to get hold of beta 2 today, and can verify that
it's fixed for 64bit now.  The fixed version is 4.1.2-4.el5, as shown above.
