Last modified: 2013-04-30 19:36:31 EDT
Description of problem:
creating a new VNC desktop with a depth of 8, 15 or 24 bits per pixel fails,
only 16 works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch a desktop with (e.g.)
vncserver :1 -geometry 1280x800 -depth 8
Silent failure, only log file reveals problem (and not being able to attach)
VNC desktop should be created
VNC desktop works jus fine for 16bpp

VNC Log output
Hmmm, 8 is working now... 15 and 24 still fail.
What says rpm -q vnc-server? Looks like dupe of bug #242277 for me.
vnc-server-4.1.2-18.fc7 could support depths 8, 16 and 24 without any problem.
15bpp depth isn't supported now because I think this depth isn't used. If you
need it I could add 15bpp support.

Thanks for the attention, I will monitor the original bug.
