Hello VNC users,
I created a new port net/tigervnc on redports.org. It is a new
implementation of VNC and quite better than former VNCs. Currently,
my net/tigervnc port has following promlems and I'm still working
for making TigerVNC perfectly works. Anyway, I would like you to test
if TigerVNC servers work (ex. Xvnc, vncserver, x0vncserver).
To try my port, please checkout my redports repository.
svn co http://svn.redports.org/meta/net/tigervnc/
Any advice is very welcome. Please help me to make TigerVNC port better!
Current problems that I'm working on:
- Cannot build vncviewer
- Cannot build with GnuTLS
- Not OptionsNG'fied yet
Why TigerVNC is better than former VNCs.
- Under active development
- Based on newer xserver than former VNCs
(v1.7.7, as same as x11-server/xorg-server)
- Supports XRandR, evdev and other extensions
- Better encodings save bandwidth and processor time
- Fedora Project replaces RealVNC by TigerVNC
