X11VNC crashing



  • Having problems on a raspberry pi 3.
    I'm using x11vnc to remote onto the pi that is used for displaying dashboards and static web pages. All has been fine but after seeing the new about the NASA hack being due to a RaspPi I thought we better upgrade to the latest of everything.

    So installed Ubuntu-Mate 18.04 done all the updates, installed everything as I did on Mate 16, all is working apart from x11vnc seems to bomb at random times. I could vnc onto the machine and work for 30-40 mins other times just a few minutes.

    Normally it runs at startup, but if I run it manually when it bombs I get this :-

    02/07/2019 09:22:12 created selwin: 0x220003e
    02/07/2019 09:22:12 called initialize_xfixes()
    *** stack smashing detected ***: <unknown> terminated caught signal: 6
    02/07/2019 09:22:13 deleted 57 tile_row polling images.
    02/07/2019 09:22:13 Restored X server key autorepeat to: 1



  • I have tried other vnc like vnc4server and tightvnc, but when following the guides I just get a new desktop. I want to see what's displayed on the screen (i.e. screen share)

    If you have a Mesh Central server, you could try using its agent.

    I don't at the moment but have been considering spinning up a VM for random usage.



  • What does the free memory look like on your Pi?

    free -m ?
