[Bug 953512] Re: xvnc4viewer crashes with "couldn't find suitable pixmap format" in 24bpp


>From the epoptes package side, we'll probably do the following:
 * If ssvncviewer is installed, and if 24bpp is detected, then ssvncviewer will be used instead.
 * Otherwise we'll just launch xvnc4viewer even if it crashes. We're not responsible for it crashing, it should be at least fixed so that it produces a warning instead of a segmentation fault.
 * We'll document the problem in the epoptes website.
