help with x11vnc


Hello all,

It's been a while since I last logged in. I'm not using linux since last december. Now I'm back again setting up a server at work. Anyway, I managed to install and run Slackware 10.2 quite smothly on a K6-II at 500Mhz and 128Mb. The video adapter is only 1 Mb, so KDE is running at 800x600 with 256 colors. This server is quite weak, I know, but the idea is to validate a concept and, once I get the go ahead from my boss, I'll get a new machine.

The thing is I'l like to access this server via VNC. I downloaded the x11vnc package to compile. I've ran ./configure and it went ok. Then I did make and it ended with:

Code:
uinput.c: In function `initialize_uinput':
uinput.c:191: error: structure has no member named `id'
uinput.c:192: error: structure has no member named `id'
uinput.c: In function `ptr_move':
uinput.c:368: error: `EV_SYN' undeclared (first use in this function)
uinput.c:368: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
uinput.c:368: error: for each function it appears in.)
uinput.c:369: error: `SYN_REPORT' undeclared (first use in this function)
uinput.c: In function `button_click':
uinput.c:546: error: `EV_SYN' undeclared (first use in this function)
uinput.c:547: error: `SYN_REPORT' undeclared (first use in this function)
uinput.c: In function `uinput_key_command':
uinput.c:770: error: `EV_SYN' undeclared (first use in this function)
uinput.c:771: error: `SYN_REPORT' undeclared (first use in this function)
make[3]: ** [uinput.o] Erro 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/gtl/x11vnc-0.8.2/x11vnc'
make[2]: ** [all-recursive] Erro 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/gtl/x11vnc-0.8.2/x11vnc'
make[1]: ** [all-recursive] Erro 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/gtl/x11vnc-0.8.2'
make: ** [all] Erro 2
Erro is portuguese for error!

Can anyone help?

Thanks!

I would first try a precompiled binary, as they are not prone to errors.
Here are the slackware x11vnc binaries:

Normally I prefer to download the source code and compile packages myself. But, since, installation went wrong I'll try to install the .tgz and see if it works.

Thanks for the tip, though!

No problem.
I have a practice in forums: for each post I get that helps me solve a problem, I post at least one to help solve someone else's problem. Sort of like seeding on bittorrent.

I would recommend this to you too, because you end up learning more about linux, and it keeps the forum alive.
