Bug Fix Advisory vnc bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0563-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-07-27
Last updated on: 2010-07-27
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated vnc packages that fix various bugs are now available.

Virtual Network Computing (VNC) is a remote display system which
allows you to view a computing 'desktop' environment not only on the
machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the Internet and
from a wide variety of machine architectures.

These updated vnc packages resolve the following issues:

* libvnc.so module to Xorg wasn't able to wake up the main Xorg process when
entered to the DPMS standby mode. Now, when libvnc.so receives keyboard or mouse
event over network, it wakes up the Xorg and turns down running screensaver.
(BZ#607566)

* the VNC server script didn't accept +option switches when specified before
[:X] display number. This issue is now resolved. (BZ#607567)

All VNC Users are advised to upgrade to these updated VNC packages, which
resolve those issues.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
