vncserver in fedora 12


Hi,

I have installed package tigervnc-1.0.0-3.fc12.i686, but when I am trying to start it:
service vncserver start
it comes back with following message:
vncserver: unrecognized service

any comments appreciated.

That's only a client. It appears you need the matching tigervnc-server package for the server.

Note, VNC is rubbish, try NX instead.
