When I switched from Slackware 14.0 to 14.1, one of the things I noticed was a couple of performance problems. Today I decided to look at the vnc server performance problem. I use vncserver to start a desktop session that I can remote into, been doing this for quite a while and it works well. With Slackware 14.1, I experienced a noticeable drop in performance when accessing the remote desktop.
I have two linux computers.
One computer 1, I installed tigervnc-server and tigervnc.
I created two users vnc_larry and vnc_moe
and from ifconfig -a I find the IP address
is 123.456.7.89 (say)
then I issue vncviewer on computer 1, it opens a VNC Viewer window
where I can key in the 123.456.7.89:1 for the `VNC server' field.
With the passwd for vnc_larry, I can get TigerVNC with a gnome desktop.
