    x11vnc is disconnecting kali-pi

    I have kali pi installed on my pi3
    I could not get vncserver to work - i only go a grey screen so i am using x11vnc.
    The problem is that it keeps disconnecting after some time (5-10 minutes).
    when it happens i cannot reconnect - i get: "The connection was refused by the computer".
    i see this message when it crashes
    x11vnc *** stack smashing detected ***: x11vnc terminated
    what can i do?

    i am using x11vnc since i could not use vncserver.
    when i was connecting to vncserver i got grey screen with red X.

    You better ditch x11vnc and go back to tightvnc.
    Here's how to fix the grey screen:

    Code:
    wget -O ~/.vnc/xstartup https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Re4son/RPi-Tweaks/master/vncservice/xstartup

    I've just done it and it works like a charm

    Hope that helps.

    As i wrote it helps very much but i sometimes get this error:
    Xlib: extension "XInputExtension" missing on display ":1.0".
    & also:
    Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display ":1.0".

    what can i do? It prevent some application from starting.
