7.254. tigervnc

Updated tigervnc packages that fix two bugs and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Virtual Network Computing (VNC) is a remote display system which allows you to view a computing 'desktop' environment not only on the machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the Internet and from a wide variety of machine architectures. This package contains a client which will allow you to connect to other desktops running a VNC server.

Bug Fixes

BZ#688624
When the Xvnc server was started by the vncserver init script, but no password file existed, the initscript failed without displaying a message. This bug is now fixed and the "VNC password for user is not configured" message appears when the password is not configured for the Xvnc session.
BZ#843714
Previously, the user was not allowed to change the value of the AcceptPointerEvents parameter while Xvnc was running. As a consequence, when the "vncconfig -set AcceptPointerEvents=1" command was used to enable and "vncconfig -set AcceptPointerEvents=0", to disable mouse input for VNC session, it failed with an error message, similar to the following:
Setting param AcceptPointerEvents=0 failed
Now the user is allowed to change the value of the AcceptPointerEvents parameter and the mouse input for a VNC session can be enabled or disabled while Xvnc is running.

Enhancement

BZ#844486
The tigervnc packages have been updated to match the latest X server version.
Users of tigervnc are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add this enhancement.
