Hi there,

I have a network with a linux server, I am attemping to remotely manage the server by using real VNC (this is from a winXP box).  I can connect alright but when I run apps on the server I seem to nearly always get a segmentation fault.  I am aware that this is because the app in question is trying to access an area of memory that it does not have access to.

Why does this occur?  How can it be solved so that I can run all my linux software through VNC?


Thanks in advance to anyone knowledgeable enough to sort this one.

Ryan.

What Linux is this? And is it up to date w/respect to vendor errata & updates?

Is the OS and applications a vendor set, or have you upgraded with packages that didn't come from your Linux Vendor?

I'm using mandrake linux 9.1 with kernel 2.4.1, i don't understand the rest of your questions but everything seems pretty up to date on the system.  Apps run fine if I am connected directly to the servers console and monitor, it's only when I vnc in that they crash.

Thanks,

Ryan.

There's a large number of errata/updates for 9.1 that could well have bearing on this problem. I'd suggest that you update the system (see http://www.mandrakesecure.net/en/ftp.php) and see if that solves the problem.
