Last modified: 2013-04-30 19:34:40 EDT
Description of problem:
The screen does not refresh when connecting to a VNC Server (remote desktop)
that has 'Desktop Effects' enabled.
When connecting to a Server with Desktop Effects enabled, a screen shot of the
desktop is displayed in the client but never again updates. You can monitor
the Server's display and see that the mouse and keyboard function, however no
output can be seen through the VNC client.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Zod
This is consistent with my configuration. Disabling Desktop Effects
immediately resolved the problem.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable desktop effects
2. Establish a VNC connection to FC6 from remote machine
3. Note the screen displays, but you do not recieve and screen updates
Additional info: The configuration is on a Dell D610 with Intel video drivers.
