Just wondering if anyone knows of any methods or hacks that would allow me to VNC to a Fedora Core 2 machine's native desktop (display :0). I need to be able to start some apps on some servers locally on the network and then check them from a workstation, meaning I need to see the same display I start them on. I've been able to do it in the past, as there were a couple of different methods to do it, those being:
RealVNC.com recommends loading the vnc.so module at startup by following the instructions on their site.
For earlier versions of VNC, someone else wrote a hack
to export the primary display to VNC. This worked really well actually..
Now, the problem is that both these methods require some editing of the XF86Config file, which no longer exists on FC2. So of course, both these methods are out for the time being.
So far, the only method I've found is to use the x0vncserver command, which is almost useless. It maxes out the CPU utilization, causes a lot of typos (duplicate characters entered), and has caused some other weird glitches.
So, might anyone know of a way to use VNC to view the primary display of a FC2 system?
Thanks in advance.
