    Default VNC Remote Administration

    I enabled VNC remote administration in Yast because X11 is not stateless. VNC works and I arrive at a desktop but

    1. when I start Yast2 in that desktop, it displays a white window

    and

    2. when I close VNC and re-connect, it doesn't connect me to the existing session but creates a new one (presumably the old session was ended for some reason)

    What am I doing wrong?

    PRETTY_NAME="openSUSE 13.1 (Bottle) (x86_64)"

    This is https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=807781

    As a workaround, set the environment variable QT_NO_MITSHM to 1, e.g. run YaST like this:
    Code:
    kdesu QT_NO_MITSHM=1 yast2
    2. when I close VNC and re-connect, it doesn't connect me to the existing session but creates a new one (presumably the old session was ended for some reason)
    That's normal and expected.
    If you enable "Remote Administration", a new X session is started each time you connect via VNC.

    If you want to connect to an existing session, run e.g. vncserver inside that session.

    Hi,

    Thanks.

    I think I'll just use X11 instead. :-)
