Last modified: 2013-04-30 19:35:14 EDT
Description of problem:
during vnc install the all check box fields are not being displayed properly,
oftentimes the background within the supposedly blank box fields are displayed
with dark color. some character texts also are displayed some strang color
rather than in solid black.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. select vnc install during boot up.
2. below is a sample kickstart file:
vnc --passwd install
url --url http://192.168.3.102/a/fed/tst/x86_64/os
network --device eth0 --bootproto dhcp --hostname fiji3
3. Once the vncserver start and revealed the IP addresss to connect,
startup the remote viewer (assumed IP= 192.168.3.27:1) i.e.
once the viewer windows start, take note of the character/fonts
and selection box fields.

I've improved vnc-always_use_fb patch so this could be fixed in next test
release (test3, vnc-*4.1.2-15.fc7). Could you tell me if is problem solved?

I think it looks better now. I'm getting the following messages on console:
Starting graphical installation...
Couldn't interpret _XKB_RULES_NAMES property
Use defaults: rules - 'xorg' model - 'pc101' layout - 'us'
I'm not sure messages are expected or not.
And below are from vncserver.log:
Could not init font path element unix/:7100, removing from list!
BOGUS LENGTH in write keyboard desc, expected 4740, got 4744
Lastly, quite abit of the following WARNING message in anaconda.log:
22:57:36 WARNING : /usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py:1212: GtkWarning: Error loading
theme icon for stock: Image file
'/usr/share/icons/Echo/24x24/actions/gtk-go-back-ltr.png' contains no data
More in the attached file.

I'm going to do some investigations about this message

Standard message. Xvnc has querry of fonts and if one font doesn't exist Xvnc
prints this message and probe next font
> BOGUS LENGTH in write keyboard desc, expected 4740, got 4744
Needs my investigation

Many images is broken in rawhide so this isn't vnc problem...
Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against test1/2/3. This
isn't obvious, I know. Moving this report so it isn't lost.
This is a bulk message -- I apologize if this was actually meant to be targeted
against a different release. If so, please fix or let me know. Thanks.
Messages discused upper doesn't matter.
