Description Aleksey Nogin 2002-06-29 14:17:22 EDT
Currently Xvnc does not support MIT-SCREEN-SAVER extension. As a result,
programs that care how long the user was idle do not work as good under Xvnc as
they do under XFree. For example, in licq the "AutoAway/AutoNA" functionality
does not work under Xvnc.
Comment 1 Aleksey Nogin 2002-07-06 15:38:49 EDT
I've tried using the XFree86v4.2-based vnc server (see
http://sourceforge.net/projects/xf4vnc/) and it does have the MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
extension (as well as many others missing in the original Xvnc). 

I have no idea whether it's stable enough to be used as a primary Xvnc, but may
be it's something worth considering? After all, 8.0 cycle (if it's not too late
in the cycle) seems like a good time for these kind of switches ;-)
