I've done a search on this one and found a few posts on freezing but they
all talk of being able to fix it by minimising and maximising the VNC
window.. Here's my problem
Server: Fedora Linux Core 1 running gnome
Client: Windows XP
Connection: 100meg LAN
Upon connection everything is ok.. moving around the desktop is fine..
pulling windows around is all fine.. I was quite excited as it looked
perfect and looks to have saved me from trying Xserving with cygwin.. bring
up the default gnome console... it appears... ok... start to type.. as soon
as i press a character on the keyboard... bam, its frozen... if i use an
xterm i can type ok, and get big lists of stuff scrolling by fine.. I assume
its something to do with anti-aliased smoothed fonts being used!?!?
I get hangs, and crashes from this point on... reconnecting and my typing
has generally been input ok..
I've seen the thing about WindowsXP and fast user switching etc.. is this a
client, server or both problem?
Other than this little hickup i'm excited of its potential.. the only other
thing is i will want the server to run at boot time as the server box will
not have keyboards or monitors connected to it.. bit off topic but is this
possible?! I think i can find the startup scripts but if anyone can point me
to one i'd appreciate it..
