vnc install on oracle enterprise linux (OEL)


when looking for the vncservers file (/etc/sysconfig) in order to setup two persistant desktop session, i find that the file doesn't exist on my oel version 5.6 ,32bit system. I thought i might need to reinstall the vnc server but when i downloaded it and tried to install it i got these errors:
file /usr/bin/Xvnc from install of vnc-server-4.1.2-14.el5_6.6.i386 conflicts with file from package vnc-4.1.3-1.i386, for all of the files. my first guess is that the version i had previously installed (vnc-4.1.3-1.i386) was newer than the version i was trying to download (4.1.2-14.el5_6.6.i386). assuming i wanted to install the older version how do i go about uninstalling it the current version of vnc server ?

rpm -e vnc.

btw VNC is *AWFUL* I'd really suggest looking at the free 2 user version of NX from nomachine.org.

i'm new to linux and we're trying different options. i've already got an exceed connection (previously hummingbird) to the linux server, adding vnc provided me an opportunity to run the installing and setting up a new application. when i modified the vncservers file:
VNCSERVERS="10:root 11racle 12:TEST"
# roots vnc options
VNCSERVERARGS[10]="-geometry 1024x768"
# oracles vnc options
VNCSERVERARGS[11]="-geometry 1024x768"
# wyoungbloods vnc options
VNCSERVERARGS[12]="-geometry 1024x768"
----------------------------------------
if i stop and start the service i get a message that "Starting VNC server: 10:root A VNC server is already running as :10"

i have no vnc connections up at this time, the only connection to the linux server is thru exceed and thats on display 0,
why would vnc think that root is already running on display 10 ??

if you run "netstat -plnt" you'll see all the listening connections, check for anythign on port 5910. You can also run "vncserver -kill :10" as whatever user is running that vnc session to kill it.
