RealVNC aborts connection to qemu-kvm processes

This document (7013383) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP3


Access via RealVNC to a qemu-kvm process to access the virtual machine VNC console results in a connection abort.


Customers experiencing this issue should contact SUSE Technical Services for a PTF (Program Temporary Fix).


The connection is opened by the client using a 8bit color depth request and and a request for the color_map. In its reply the server does not offer a color_map which the client treats as error and closes the connection.
