    Default get current session with VNC


    I am trying to get the physical running session (desktop 0) on an opensuse 10.3 with VNC client.

    I succeed to get the session :1 or :2 but the :0 session doesn't works.

    My xorg.conf is configured like that :

    Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "Layout[all]"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        Option         "Clone" "off"
        Option         "VNC" "9 2"
    Section "Module"
        Load           "vnc"
    Section "Device"
        Identifier     "Device[0]"
        Driver         "nvidia"
        VendorName     "VESA"
        BoardName      "Framebuffer Graphics"
        Option         "SecurityTypes" "VncAuth"
        Option         "usevnc" "yes"
        Option         "rfbauth" "/root/.vnc/passwd"
        Screen          0
    the "/root/.vnc/passwd" file is populated with the vncpasswd command.

    My X server is running under root user :
    root     13125  1.0  1.6 529952 67632 tty7     SLs+ 11:57   0:34 /usr/bin/X -br -nolisten tcp :0 vt7 -auth /var/lib/xdm/authdir/authfiles/A:0-OSp2CU
    the 5900 TCP port is open and ther isn't any firewall :
    tcp        0      0  *               LISTEN      13125/X
    but I allways get this error log message in the kdm log file :
    Wed May 13 12:56:46 2009
     Connections: accepted:
     SConnection: Client needs protocol version 3.4
     SConnection: Client uses unofficial protocol version 3.4
     SConnection: Assuming compatibility with version 3.3
    Wed May 13 12:56:49 2009
     SSecurityFactoryStandard: neither Password nor PasswordFile params set
     SConnection: AuthFailureException: No password configured for VNC Auth
     Connections: closed: (No password configured for VNC
    For sure the vncpasswd is populated and the Xorg conf point correctly the auth file, so i don't understand where i am wrong.

    any help ?

    Hi there John, this worked for me...

    Solution discussed here:
    vnc in opensuse 11.1 (and probably 11.0) -

    Which pointed to here:
    HOWTO: Setup x11vnc as krfb alternative. [Archive] - Ubuntu Forums

    And for further info on x11vnc:
