Description Tim Jackson 2008-04-29 08:55:43 EDT
vnc-ltsp-config could do with at least some *basic* documentation on how to set
it up after installing. 

Some useful steps are in bug #181451 - here is a quick edit:

Disable the regular VNC sessions on the machine:
$ /sbin/service vnc stop

Enable the vncts service with
$ chkconfig vncts on
(becuase it's disabled by default).

Lastly, configure your desktop/login manger (gdm or kdm) to allow
XDMCP connections from localhost. This is done by:

a) running the graphical tool gdmsetup (System -> Administration -> Login
Window), and enable remote logins from the "Remote" tab


i) For gdm, edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf and see if you can find a section
beginning "[xdmcp]". If you can't, add it. Then, underneath "[xdmcp]", add:
Enable = true

ii) for kdm, do [...fill this in, I don't use kdm...]
Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 05:36:11 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
