Screenshot of a VNC connection.
Description of problem:
I tried to use vino, x11vnc, and tigervnc to view my desktop on a 1680x1050 resolution, none of them worked.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Reproducible so long as the user has a monitor to support a large enough resolution.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set the resolution higher than 1440x900.
2. Install and run a VNC server.
3. Connect to the VNC server from another computer.
The screen displays complete static/gibberish. The mouse can still click objects but the user has no idea which object is which.
The screen should display without the corruption.
May have a relation to bug 653270.
Why was this changed to tigervnc? I only tested it on tigervnc once, and have tested it on vino and x11vnc a plethora of times (with vino much higher still than x11vnc). This bug applies to VNC servers as a whole, not a single VNC server.
Because tigervnc is what we ship. The 'vnc' component is a legacy component from much older Fedora releases.
Ah, thank you. Sorry for the trouble then.
This is a bug in the Windows viewer, not in the TigerVNC server.

Closing as notabug.
