TightVNC Viewer porting

I ported the Linux version of TightVNC viewer.

I tested only on my PW3, so feedbacks are welcome.

If you want to use it, be sure you have an active ssh connection in order to kill the vncviewer process when you've done, otherwise you can brick your device!

Instructions:
  1. Extract the archive on your kindle
  2. Open a ssh connection (via cable or wifi)
  3. Open KTerm
  4. [from KTerm] cd to the directory where you extracted the archive
  5. [from KTerm] execute:
    Code:
    ./vncviewer -viewonly -nojpeg  <ip_of_your_server>::<port_of_your_server> &

if you need a password for the server, use the included vncpasswd tool to create a password file and in the step 5. use this command instead:
Code:
./vncviewer -viewonly -nojpeg -passwd <your_password_file> <ip_of_your_server>::<port_of_your_server> &
to stop the viewer, (from your ssh session), grab the id of its process:
Code:
ps aux | grep vncviewer
and kill it:
Code:
kill <PID_of_vncviewer>
If you get distorted images, try to change the resolution of your server (i noticed this with the Windows version of TightVNC server on 1366x768 pixels, if i changed to 1360x768 the images are ok)

Use at your own risk!
