tigervnc freezes the gnome desktop
Last modified: 2013-12-08 20:49:21 EST
Description of problem:
I upgrade Fedora 13 this morning. After reboot, i click on tigervnc icon on my gonme-panel, and it freezes the whole gnome screen. Keyboard has no response at all. I reboot host again and tried vncview, it does the same thing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora 13
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade Fedora 13 to latest
2. click on vnctiger icon (i tried to run vncview as well, same result)
Actual results: screen freeze, keyboard has no response, but i can ssh into host from another host
my laptop is lenovo t60
[root@works4you ~]# uname -a
Linux <workstatation name> 220.127.116.11-124.fc13.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Jun 11 09:38:12 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I tried downgrade tigervnc
(tigervnc-1.0.90-0.8.20100219svn3993.fc13.x86_64), but I still get same problem
[root@works4you ~]# rpm -qa | grep tigervnc
This is weird, it seems like a graphics driver issue than vncviewer issue. Would it be possible to attach dmesg output and /var/log/Xorg.0.log, please?
Can you please ssh into frozen machine and check if Xorg process simply hangs or if it consumes 100% CPU time? Thank you in advance.

xorg.0.log, this should be the right one
This really seems like graphics driver issue for me. Reassigning to nouveau driver for further inspection.

machine freezes when openoffice starts up
I tried update my video driver this morning, and the problem seems gone.
I disabled "nouveau" driver and installed the one from nVidia. After reboot, I don't see the freezes anymore.
Thanks for the hint. I am pretty sure this is video driver related problem
I will close the bug.
