Thread: yast / root applications show empty windows in persistent vnc session

  1. #1

    Default yast / root applications show empty windows in persistent vnc session

    i have a server running opensuse 12.2
    for remote administration i am running a persistent vnc session on the server with a user account.
    however when i start yast within that session the window opens but shows only flat gray. same if i start dolphin in superuser mode.
    the strange thing is when i activate standard, non persistent vnc remote administration and log in with the same user, i can start yast and use it just fine.

    any ideas?

    thx in advance

    yep....someone else recemtæu report similar symptoms while running
    YaST via either NX Free or FreeNX...so, i guess there is something
    wrong somewhere..

    see: http://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php?t=485408

    but i have no idea what the problem is! maybe if you two compare
    software, systems, setups, VMs, whatever a eureka moment will occur!

    if you (two) don't get resolution soon, i guess you need to take to
    the mail list or IRC....or perhaps bugzilla--i really do not know
    what is best..(but, it is well beyond my ability to troubleshoot or
    help!)
