Framebuffer VNC server specifically for the emerging Android platform. Forked from an old version of fbvncserver originally released for the Zaurus and iPAQ devices.

This project is largely a hack to facilitate testing of the Android user experience on real handsets with full screen VNC clients running. The current test framework is ideally suited for Windows Mobile based handsets running .NET VNC Viewer.

The subversion repository contains instructions for advanced users to build the package from source, but I admit it is a pain. You will need to custom build an Android kernel, the libvncserver library, etc. For your convenience, I have supplied a statically linked fbvncserver binary to install onto the emulator as well as the kernel you will need to boot. For the brave, check out the subversion sources and read the README file for complete instructions.
