Description Jeff Bastian 2008-02-19 16:02:36 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #433493 +++

This is a clone of bug 433493, bug 433510, and bug 433511 for RHEL 5.1.

The /usr/bin/krfb_httpd script is really odd in RHEL 5.1 

It looks like a DOS file (lots of ^M chars instead of newlines), but running
dos2unix does not clean it up.  Doing '%s/^M/\r/g' with vim cleans it up nicely,

It also has the wrong <APPLET> tag.  It should be
  <APPLET CODE=vncviewer/VNCViewer.class ARCHIVE=vncviewer.jar ....

This cleans it up a little too much.  Three ^M chars need to remain for the
script to work.  The attachment in comment #1 does have 3 ^M chars in it.

This is probably what caused bug 433510 in Fedora 8...

Proposing for RHEL-5.3, waiting with final ACK on developer review.

Read ya, Phil
