[mythtv-users] OT? Myth and VNC

Has anyone been able to get Myth running over VNC?  In particular, I'm 
using Fedora Core 7, and the stable version of Mythtv.  I'm also using 
the Xvnc that comes with Fedora. 

Trying to run mythtv-setup gives me Xlib errors that XInputExtension is 
missing.  I've tried adding +extension XInputExtenion but it doesn't 
seem to have any effect.  Further, according to the RealVNC website, my 
verison of XVnc comes with XInputExtension enabled by default anyway.

What's the trick?
