Previously, the radeon driver did not work correctly with the Virtual Network Computing (VNC) module if hardware acceleration was enabled. Consequently, a VNC client connected to a computer set up this way only displayed a blank screen. With this update, this problem has been resolved, and it is now possible to use VNC with the aforementioned setup.
Users of libdrm, mesa, xorg-x11-drv-ati, and xorg-x11-drv-intel are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
