Installed Mandrake 9.2, and am trying to get vnc (tightvnc specifically) running.
I installed the tightvnc package, but it doesn't seem to have a vnc server in it, only a vnc viewer.
I thought maybe the Mandrake CD has a FUBAR'd rpm, so I sent to rpmfind.net and downloaded it from there, as it indcated that it did have the tightvnc server in it.
Nope. Installed the one I downloaded (removed the 1st tightvnc rpm before hand), but still no vnc server.
Here's some output from the console:
[root@fatman root]# rpm -qa | grep -i vnc
[root@fatman root]# rpm -qil tightvnc-1.2.7-5mdk

Summary : TightVNC is the enhanced version of the famous vnc project.
The enhanced version of VNC, called TightVNC (grown from the VNC Tight
Encoder project), which is optimized to work over slow network
connections such as low-speed modem links. While original VNC may be
very slow when your connection is not fast enough, with TightVNC you can
work remotely almost in real time in most environments. Besides
bandwidth optimizations, TightVNC also includes many other improvements,
optimizations and bugfixes over VNC. Note that TightVNC is free,
cross-platform and compatible with the standard VNC.
As you can see, tightvnc is AWOL from this package.
I do, however, have the security settings on my box set to high (I want to change them to normal or whatever the default setting is, as its on a secure LAN at work, but thats another question), so I'm not sure if that has something to do with it.
Anyone got any ideas?
