Configuring X11vnc


Hi,

I'm running Mandriva 2010 Spring & I 've got X11vnc installed & it works for me in that I can connect remotely to my desktop (mandriva) via my laptop (windows). I've even got it configured so it works over an SSH Tunnel, which is great. I've even found the cures to a couple of bugs that I had (keyboard shift key wouldn't work over x11vnc fixed using the -xkb switch & the screensaver would disable & instantly started again, which was fixed using the -nodpms switch).

Anyway the problem that I'm now having is that the display disconnects after a period of time (not sure how long, but when vnc disconnects & I then reconnect to the display it's at the user login screen).

If I then try & login vnc is disconnected & the login doesn't appear to work on Mandriva as when I reconnect, the display is back at the user login screen.

I did some reading up on Karl Runge's site and have used the script to find my authority file. The -authority switch looks like it is looking at the correct file when using the "x11vnc_sh" on Karl's site.
I've also set the KillInitClients=false in the [daemon] section of /etc/X11/gdm/custom.conf but have now run out of ideas of things to try.


I was also hoping to install this as a service, but due to the differences of Mandriva & other linux flavours that Karl references I wasn't able to get this working using his guide.

Thanks in advance,
