vino-server doesn’t start (crash)
I installed the alpha version of Ubuntu 10.10 and I had a small problem: VNC Server (vino-server) doesn’t start. If you take a look on your home folder, in file .xsession-errors probably you will find:
13/10/2010 07:47:39 PM Autoprobing TCP port in (all) network interface

13/10/2010 07:47:39 PM Advertising security type: 'VNC Authentication' (2)
** Message: Received signal 11, exiting...
I read a lot of solutions from internet about how to fix that and I will try to describe them here:
First, was the reinstall:
$ sudo aptitude reinstall vino-server
But doesn’t work for me.
Second, was to replace vino-server binary from /usr/lib/vino with the binary from Ubuntu 10.4, that worked, but I wasn’t totally satisfied (what it will happen at next upgrade ?)
After I study a little bit, the bug from Ubuntu launchpad, I found the best solution for me:
I disabled uPNP from my router. Yes, it is so simple. On my Linksys router I found uPNP under Administration -> Management.
So, no changes on my workstation and VNC works great.
