Description Jens Knutson 2005-05-24 16:26:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Epiphany/1.6.1

Description of problem:
The tsclient RPM ought to require the vnc rpm, since tsclient offers VNC functionality, but if you don't have the VNC rpm installed, the VNC selector in the dropdown list in tsclient is just mysteriously greyed out, with no explanation of why.  Unless one is a Big Ol' Nerd(TM) like me, one would probably not know *why* it appears broken like this.

Basically, for the majority of people, tsclient will appear to be broken right out of the box for VNC.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install tsclient.
2. Wonder why you can't use it for VNC
3. Depending on expertise, either do some dorking around with yum to discover that VNC isn't installed OR get pissed off and whine about Red Hat on a web forum.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Confirmed - tsclient still doesn't require vnc
