#18 X can't switch back from console when xf4vnc is active.


when I switch to console (ctrl + alt + f1-f6) it looks like X but
garbelled, when I try tos switch back to X (ctrl + alt + f7) I still
have garbelled X and nothing is controllable.
but in console mode I can login and restart X (without visual
feedback) and everything is back to normal (except from not
beeing able to go to the console)

    I'm not quite sure I understand what your saying, but first

    xf4vnc enforces that you stay in X when someone is
    connected, because when your switched away to a text VT,
    then the graphics memory is longer valid, and you get
    garbled output on the vncviewer. You can still change vt
    with the chvt command though - which can cause this behaviour.

    I've got a fix in the works for it, and should appear in the
    new release in a few weeks time.

    You don't mention which version you are running though.

    so we'll be able to run without having that display active?
