solution: opensususe 10.2 vnc

opensuse 10.2 vnc

If you played with openSUSE 10.2 in combination with GNOME you could have bumped into the issue that VNC was not working. It's a bug.

edit /opt/gnome/share/gdm/defaults.conf and look for the [xdmcp] section and change it to enable=true, and then restart gdm, things will start working

Pretty dangerous isn't this? Better solution is to tunnel VNC over SSH.
