ok, so i've decided I need to install a VNC package in linux (want the gui from my windows desktop)
so far I have downloaded two packages tightvnc and vnc-4_1_3-x86_linux
I installed tightvnc but I uninstalled it when i couldn't get it to work - basically just installed it from my home dir so maybe that wasn't the best approach - i did read the README file but found it vague for a newbie like me so...
next I installed the other vnc package -
but this was installed by billf (who is no longer with the company)
[root@nagios bin]# ls -lat v*
-r-xr-xr-x 1 billf nagcmd 134151 2008-10-15 07:49 vncconfig
-r-xr-xr-x 1 billf nagcmd 26614 2008-10-15 07:49 vncpasswd
-r-xr-xr-x 1 billf nagcmd 445044 2008-10-15 07:49 vncviewer
-r-xr-xr-x 1 billf nagcmd 13938 2008-10-15 07:33 vncserver
and get this error:
[root@nagios bin]# ./vncserver
You will require a password to access your desktops.
vncpasswd: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I have no idea what these libraries are or how to make them accessible.
Next I read on a how to see what packages are installed:
[root@nagios bin]# rpm -qa|grep vnc
I think the tightvnc package might be the best one to use but maybe I can use something that is already installed but keep running into stumbling blocks
I would really appreciate it if someone could direct me to a great detailed step-by-step installation guide or if any of the above makes any sense some direction on how to proceed. I also read somewhere (now can't find link) that xinetd must be running - this is not running but none of the packages even mention that this must be running before using vnc
[root@nagios bin]# ps -ef | grep xinetd
root 15382 8881 0 16:06 pts/0 00:00:00 grep xinetd
Sorry if this is a mouthful, but as I mentioned I am beginning to sink in the quagmire of linuxdom
thanks for any help you can provide
