Full Version: Vnc Viewer Crashes When Connecting To Os X

Now I'm trying to do the opposite of what I was trying before (which, by the way, worked great when I used the VNC client from the official VNC site). I'm trying to VNC into my Powerbook using Keypebble.

My Zaurus is a C-760 and I'm running the Cacko Qtopia 1.21b ROM. The version of Keypebble I have is opie-keypebble 1.0.0. On my Powerbook, I'm using "Share My Desktop" (a wrapper for OSXvnc).

When I connect to my Powerbook, the display draws out and fills the screen. The moment it's finished drawing, the applications crashes and dies. I tried different settings (including the scale factor) and I get the same results.

Here's the settings I'm currently using with Keypebble:

Check for screen updates every: 1ms
Request 8-bit session: checked
Raise on bell: not checked
Request Shared Session: checked
Scale Factor: 1
Hextile encoding: greyed out
CoRRE encoding: greyed out
RRE encoding: greyed out
Copy rectangle encoding: checked

Does anyone know what could be causing the crash of keypebble?

Thanks
Curt

Hi, Curt

How wedded are you to Share My Desktop? I'm typing this on my Z from across the room while connected to my iBook using OSXvnc v1.4. No problems whatever so far and setup was cake.

Let me know how you fare that way.

Thanks for the suggestion. Share My Desktop should just be a wrapper for OSXvnc, however, it might be that the version of OSXvnc is old. I'll try version 1.4 in a bit. Right now I'm upgrading to Cacko Qtopia 1.22. I'll let you know how it goes.

zaurus-vncserver package included in the Cacko feed has a java viewer. So, in theory you should be able to point your web browser to http://zaurus:5800 and it will work.

It works! Thanks. Now if I could only find a VNC client that did millions of colors and one that was more responsive.

I recently read an article about a guy using a PPC handheld to VNC into his powerbook to watch EyeTV. I tried doing the same, but it just won't update quickly enough. Well, maybe that guy was talking a load of BS... seems odd that if it can be done it wouldn't work even on my powerbook to iMac VNC connection on a 802.11g network with all components in the same room.

Thanks for the help!
