VNC and corrupt utmp file
Wed Jan 29 00:05:01 2003
I'm running VNC 3.3.6 on RH Linux 7.2, and I've been encountering a problem
where 'utmp' entries, created during an X session (running under VNC), do
not seem to be getting deleted once I kill the VNC server. This leads to
corruption of the utmp file, and invalid 'who' command results.
1) I've changed my $HOME/.vnc/xstartup file to the following:
2) I recently upgraded to VNC 3.3.6 from 3.3.3. So to be fair, the problem
may not exist with the new VNC, and what I have is left-over corruption. I
plan to reboot... which normally resets the utmp file... but I can't afford
to be doing this on a regular basis, of course.
3) I'm killing the vncserver without first logging off of my X session.
Should this make any difference?
Has anyone else observed this problem? Does anyone know how to fix the
