Description James Barwick 2003-03-21 06:19:09 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312

Description of problem:
To keep everyone from having to MODIFY startup scripts every time we
install RH...PLEASE...oh PLEASE make this VERY SIMPLE change....
Change the startup line to:
"su ${display##*:} -c \"cd ~${display##*:} && [ -f .vnc/passwd ] &&
vncserver $VNCOPTIONS :${display%%:*}\""
We can then put VNCOPTIONS in /etc/sysconfig/vncservers
PLEASE!!!!!  This is WAY SIMPLE.  There should be NO REASON for you not to
comply with this request.	This will take all of 2-1/2 seconds for someone to add
to the distribution RPM.  

This just makes the product BETTER.  Come on...this is too too simple.  Yes I
can do it EVERY time I install.  But, you would look much better if I didn't.
You should really honor these NON-IMPACT modification requests by your
customers.  Only makes you look better.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure /etc/sysconfig/vncserver
2. run "service vncserver start"
3. no way "out of the box" to specify vncserver parameters

Actual Results:  Be able to start the server with a specified screen size and
color depth

Expected Results:  unable to start the server with a specified screen size and
color depth without modifying the /etc/rc.d/vncserver script
