Remote administration eats all my CPU :(


My system is:

Suse 9.2
Athlon XP 2800+
Radeon 9800Pro 128mb
1024MB DDR ram
...

I use the included remote administration software which came with suse. That is: kdenetwork3-vnc. I use this one because i need a VNC which enables me to get on my screen thats 0. I use also tightVNC but that one only gives me ability to login as a new user.I would need a VNC that i can see my screen.

The problem is:
When i connect the process of the kdenetwork3-vnc opens up, and then it rapidly eats up cpu till it reaches 100% then i get the prompt for entering my password on my VNC client. It wont start before it eats 100% cpu, and ask me for password (takes about 10seconds to eat everything ). Then when i get in the vnc works almost normal (if you count normal that keyboard setup gets back to default on Eng, and that shift doesn't work, and like 10% of other vital keys also not, and that it`s impossible to write a sentence because you press a key and it just randomly repeats itself ... etc).

So anybody maybe experienced some similar problems and can help me out. Or maybe suggest some other remote administration software, which allows me to connect to my remote computer on my default screen.

Oh and BTW i tried to upgrade this suse vnc thing but it`s last version which i already have

Please any help needed. :P

I have had similar problems, and I gave up vnc. I now use ssh and a remote X desktop. However, I know it is possible to configure X to have a vnc copy of display :0.

Hum it requires license key, so it`s not free

Any free options ?

Strange... I understand your point, but realvnc seems to meet the debian free software guidelines, and it is distributed under the GPL:

Well ok it says so there, but where to actualy get a free version ??

Because on the official site of RealVNC there i can only download a trial or something like that version, and even that one needs some kind of license key

Your distribution probably has packages to install realvnc.

If not, go to http://www.realvnc.com/products/free/4.1/download.html , and, without completing the form, click download. This page also confirms:

Uninstalled all other vnc`s i had and installed this one you gave me the link. It works as it should but the thing is that it still eat`s up cpu right after connecting to screen 0

And this one even wont drop cpu after i get off the vnc, previous one did at least that

So i am kind off on the beginning, TightVNC works flawless, but it doesn't support connecting on my working screen.

My heads is starting to itch, because if i can`t get remote to work on my screen it`s same as i wouldn`t have a computer at all here

Sorry, this probably means that kdenetwork3-vnc actually uses realvnc too. Stay away from realvnc.

Solution: use x11vnc http://www.karlrunge.com/x11vnc/
