Fedora13: VNC not installed after installing via yum


Hello all,

On a fresh Fedora 13 install, I have done:
su yum install vnc
and:
su yum install vnc-server

yum installs tigervnc and tigervnc-server with no errors. However, when I go into /etc/sysconfig/ to edit vncservers, vncservers does not exist. Also, there is no vnc service listed in the services, and doing:
sudo service vncserver restart
returns the message:
vncserver: unrecognized service

What gives? Is vncserver not installed?

After repeating the above commands several times and getting no different results, I went into Gnome's Add/Remove Software and installed tigervnc server there. Apparently it wasn't installed, even though I had installed it maybe 5 times. May be a bug in yum...

with the terminal yum program you NEED TO BE 100% sure of the name a small typo will not install software

i normally do a SEARCH first
" yum search vlc "
then copy/paste the program name
