Thread: Xvnc, openSUSE 11.2, and xorg.conf

    Default Xvnc, openSUSE 11.2, and xorg.conf

    Hello helpful community.

    I am sure this problem has been run into already, but I have yet to find a solution:


    To get Xvnc module working by loading it automatically in the xorg.conf, thus making session :0 open (i.e. not starting a new session like the YaST module does.)

    I wrote these directions to do it for openSUSE 11.0 a while back:
    Remote Access missing in openSuSE 11? - openSUSE Forums


    Those directions don't seem to work anymore since I just upgraded to 11.2 (skipped 11.1). The following shows up in the xorg.conf:

    (II) LoadModule: "vnc"
    (II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules//extensions/
    (II) Module vnc: vendor="xf4vnc Project, see (based on modular"
            compiled for 1.6.5, module version = 1.1.0
            Module class: X.Org Server Extension
            ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 1.0
    (EE) module ABI major version (1) doesn't match the server's version (2)
    (II) UnloadModule: "vnc"
    (II) Unloading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules//extensions/
    (EE) Failed to load module "vnc" (module requirement mismatch, 0)
    I have never dealt with ABI version mismatches in Xorg before. Does anyone have an idea to how to correct this problem and get VNC in this manner to work again?

    I forgot to mention, I am open to using a new technology, as well.

    I would just like to get screen :0 available from the moment the X server starts - this includes the login screen.

    I looked at the OBS sources for xorg-x11-server to see if I could diagnose the ABI mismatch problem, here:

    I found a patch that was added called 'xorg-server-xf4vnc-abi-version.diff'. This patch increased the ABI version to 1.0 from 0.3. I altered it to 2.0 to match the server and I recompiled the X server.

    It loaded! sort of.... The Xorg.0.log says it loads fine, then right when it tries to start the VNC server, X crashes with a stack trace stating the problem was /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/

    Sigh. Maybe my patch change wasn't so successful. The patch did say it was a hack in the first place....

    I am open for more suggestions,
