Install Tiger VNC on Redhat 6


Can someone please forward me the instructions on installing Tiger VNC on linux.
I have download the the tar file from this location :

http://sourceforge.net/projects/tige...igervnc/1.2.0/

I am not sure what to do next. Most of the forums say use yum install "package-name" but there is an error displayed, no package found.

I am not able to see the /etc/sysconfig/vncservers file also.

Please help.

Thanks,
Robert.

Thanks adambot for the reply.

I ran the commands and I am seeing this:

# yum info tigervnc-server
Loaded plugins: product-id, subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.
Error: No matching Packages to list
#
# yum install tigervnc-server
Loaded plugins: product-id, subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.
Setting up Install Process
No package tigervnc-server available.
Error: Nothing to do
#

So, the tar file that I have extracted has this structure...

/opt/TigerVNC/......

How do I specify this package or I need to download some other file format to run the installer?

May be i need to use the RPM file from the location:

http://pkgs.org/centos-6-rhel-6/cent...86_64.rpm.html

I guess CentOS packages are also applicable for RHEL 6.2

I downloaded the rpm from the link mentioned in my last post. CentOS & RH packages should work.

I guess i am missing so many files ...any idea if a single rpm will install all these OR I need to download them individually? Any link ?

Install xorg packages to fix the issue

yum install xorg-x11*

Then run rpm command to install tiger vnc.

This IS RHEL 6.3 ? right ?
and not CentOS6.3
if so
please do your self a very BIG favor and save your self a TON of problems

use YUM to install tiger !!!
it is in the RHN repo ( rhel-x86_64-server-6)

RHEL is not a free operating system .
You must buy the required support contract/license
there are no "if's and's or but's " about it
the desktop license is $49 to $299 per year
https://www.redhat.com/apps/store/desktop/

or
install one of the FREE rebuilds like CentOS 6.3
http://centos.org/
or ScientificLinux 6.3
https://www.scientificlinux.org/
