[Qemu-devel] Current state of RFB patch

Hello all

What is the current state of the RFB aka VNC patch ?

I tried to apply the RFB9 to the QEMU daily set from 15.3.2005. I did
this on a Mandrake 10.0 installation with SDL 1.2.7 and the current
libvncserver library. I got some hunk errors and applying it by hand
didn't let me compile it at the end.

There is the confusing thing, that the keyboard support from it got
included into the current CVS but the VNC part not.

After all, I applied the RFB9 patch to the QEMU 0.6.1 source
distribution. I can compile it and it installs fine. Now my idea is to
use the VNC part without an X server output on that machine. I can
start a TightVNC server and connect with a client to it. Starting QEMU
with "-nographic" gives me the prompt "(QEMU)", but can't enter any
thing, only use the CTRL-a commands. When I use "-k de-ch" or any
other keyboard layout, I get an error that it could not find the
keymapping and that it will use the default ones. Without
"-nographic", it reports an "SDL error".

My questions are:

1. Is the VNC option still supported in one way on the current CVS of

2. Can I use the VNC option on a machine without running X ? (My
servers never have an X...)

3. Does the VNC option require only the libvncserver library or also
the ThightVNC server ?

4. Does I need to use the NOSDL patch ?

I got stuck with my testings, because I don't know what all kind is
supposed to work.

Thanks in advance
