vnc question on suse9


Ok, I have a couple of questions on vnc. First, is there an easy way to tell what version is installed. Second, On suse9, both vnc and tightvnd are installed. When I run vncserver, i think that realvnc is the one running, i want to run tightvnc. It seems like both of them run with vncserver. If I try to remove realvnc from my install, it says that tightvnc will also be removed. Is there a way around this?

Excuse my ignorance, but I am just trying to muddle my way through this. So far, so good.

Thanks for any help.

Welcome to LQ.

It would seem funny that one would uninstall the other. My suggesstion is just remove both then download and install the latest version from http://www.tightvnc.com

That should sort your version out too.

Ok, I did that. Everything is removed. Now when I try to install the tightvnc rpm, I get a msg about can't find sbin/service. Is this strictly a Red Hat thing? If so, is there any way to install this rpm on suse?

Thanks

The only rpms are for redhat 7.x - just use the source instead.
