Could you tell me which client are you using, please? Also run vnc server with "-log *:stderr:100" parameter and attach log from the server, please (if you run, for example, "vncserver :3 -log *:stderr:100" then log is located in $HOME/.vnc/*:5.log file)

Log File of VineServer
There is no useful information in the server log file, because it's a mac.
Client is tigervnc-0.0.90-0.5.20090403svn3751.fc11.i586
Server is VineServer 3.0 (MacOS X)
VNC Viewer (vnc-4.1.3-1.fc10.i386) has no problem with the Server.
If you disable "Render cursor locally", you will see only a dot, but the mouse is working.
Switching back to RealVNC (http://www.realvnc.com/) solves the problem temporary.
No changes in tigervnc-0.0.90-0.10.fc11.i586.
Same issue with x86_64 version. No mouse available--using Steve's suggestion of unchecking Render cursor locally works as he described.
In my case, I used tightvnc (rather than real) and that solves the problem.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
The same problem exists in Fedora 12. I can reproduce it on a few different machines, running i386 and x86_64, whether running F11 or F12.
This is apparently an upstream issue. I tried building it from source in Fedora and Ubuntu and had the same problem as with the RPM.
Finally I got Mac machine so I've been able to reproduce this issue.
tigervnc-0.0.91-0.11.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
Yep, fixed for me, thx!
Fixed it for me on an F11 x86_64 machine. Thank you.
Just for the heck of it, I tried the new F11 rpm on an F12 install. The new build installed without problem and fixed the problem there as well.
Once again, many thanks.
tigervnc-0.0.91-0.11.fc11 has been pushed to the Fedora 11 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
