Re: [PLUG] great tool: x11vnc

I've been trying to get it to run under KVM.  KVM completely locked up 
my laptop but behaves on my desktop (both AMD).  Networking is a PITA 
(no reflection on Hardy).

it's a *must have* for me.
I discovered it a year or more back.  My application is pure laziness: I 
have two desktops in the computer room which I can `use' from my laptop 
anywhere else in the house.

It gives me no grief at all.  The scaling feature is very interesting.

I remember trying something else... I think it was ssh with X 
forwarding.  Also cool but nowhere near as fast or stable.

I haven't messed with the parameter yet, but Xinerama can confuse it 
pretty nicely.

Glad you're enjoying.  As you said, it just works.
