I have a silly question. I was reading the RedHat 8.0 pages looking for things that involved xauth.
I recently purchased a server box which isnt anywhere near me and I would like to put VNC on it. The error I get is: vncserver: couldn't find "xauth" on your PATH.
From what i've read, xauth has something to do with when you start xwindows. Since i've never been in front of the machine and configured it to startx, I'm guessing its not even on there.
I'm not even sure I understand all this completely or the concept of how xauth gets involved. I'm still reading.
I'm trying to install a vncserver so I can do things faster via xwindows... and since the new box is fresh with RedHat 8 on it... I'm thinking the people who installed, didn't even bother with xwindows... is this possible?
I did a search and cant even find xauth on the machine... assuming I did the find correctly.
Can anyone lead me into the right direction?
