Description Trond H. Amundsen 2012-02-15 14:42:58 UTC
FreeRDP in Fedora (EPEL) is getting old. There are many new exciting features in the 1.0.x releases, as well as bugfixes. In addition, we're hitting a strange problem where freerdp brings down the RDP server infrequently and at random, as described here:


While this is really a problem with Windows and should be fixed at the server end, we're hoping that an upgraded freerdp might help as a workaround.

Comment 1 Mads Kiilerich 2012-02-15 14:58:04 UTC
Yes, I will do that RSN. I haven't had time to follow it recently, but it is getting close to the top of my list now.

Comment 2 Mads Kiilerich 2012-02-25 11:57:03 UTC
I have commit the update in Fedora rawhide, but building without repo conflicts requires a remmina update as well - we are waiting for that to happen. The (major) update has thus not seen any real testing yet.

Remmina is however not in EPEL and there is thus no dependency problems for updating there. The only problem is that it would be a major update in a released EL, but I think it is OK considering how unknown and immature freerdp 0.8 was and how much it has improved.
