From console you can edit with e.g.

Code:
vim pathtofilename
e.g. 'vim /etc/resolv.conf'

You're welcome, but you REALLY should not be editing system files, if you don't know what you're doing.

As said, changing that file is pointless, since the next time the system is rebooted, your changes will be overwritten.

Unless you disabled repositories, or are using a VERY old install media..

You shouldn't have a problem as tigervnc is in the standard install repositories.

Now you may have a network configuration error instead, but that can be easily tested by attempting to use the browser to go to google. If the network works, did you disable the base repositories?

As I said, if you have a network problem you won't be able to install software, and no amount of editing a repository definition will change that.

And without a network connection, you won't be able to tigervnc either.

You don't even need it to login to a database anyway. ssh works better to get a session, then you can log in to the database.
