Description James Ralston 2008-07-26 15:00:41 EDT

I want to be able to run an X server on a physical display, but with the ability
to connect to it via vncviewer.

I configured my xorg.conf file to load the libvnc.so module:

Section "Module"
        Load        "libvnc"

However, this fails.  From my Xorg.0.log file:

(II) LoadModule: "libvnc"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libvnc.so
(EE) LoadModule: Module libvnc does not have a libvncModuleData data object.
(II) UnloadModule: "libvnc"
(II) Unloading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libvnc.so
(EE) Failed to load module "libvnc" (invalid module, 0)
(II) LoadModule: "extmod"

I found this Debian bug:


First, if libvnc.so is truly incompatible with the X server, it shouldn't be
included in the vnc-server package.

Second, if this is indeed the case... how can I connect to and manipulate an X
server running on a physical display remotely via VNC?

(The Debian bug references the "xf4vnc" project, but that doesn't seem to be
available for Fedora...)

You have to specify "Load "vnc" ", not libvnc. With "vnc" all works as expected.
