Have you tried loading the vnc module in your xorg.conf? I'm running
FC6, and I have following in xorg.conf:
I have the vnc-server rpm also installed, but I don't actually run it:
[root at poseidon X11]# chkconfig --list | grep vnc
vncserver 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off
[root at poseidon X11]# service vncserver status
Xvnc is stopped
[root at poseidon X11]#
It works fine for me - no problems accessing the remote desktop this way
at all. Of course, playing back video, you don't actually see the
video, just the first frame or so, or just a black screen.
