Problem running RealVNC server


I am trying to run RealVNC server on Fedora Core 5

I ran the install script called 'vncinstall' with the following command
"./vncinstall /usr/local/bin"
as mentioned in the README file

this was the result:

Xvnc hasn't changed
Xvnc.man hasn't changed
vncviewer hasn't changed
vncviewer.man hasn't changed
vncpasswd hasn't changed
vncpasswd.man hasn't changed
vncconfig hasn't changed
vncconfig.man hasn't changed
vnckeygen hasn't changed
vnckeygen.man hasn't changed
vncserver hasn't changed
vncserver.man hasn't changed
vnclicense hasn't changed
vnclicense.man hasn't changed
vncaddrbook hasn't changed
vncaddrbook.man hasn't changed
x0vncserver hasn't changed
x0vncserver.man hasn't changed
vncinitconfig hasn't changed
vncinitconfig.man hasn't changed
Updating /etc/pam.d/vncserver
Looking for font path... not found.
Looking for RGB database... assuming /usr/share/X11/rgb.
Checking for single sign-on support... Not found

seems like an error, what should I do then?

this is not an error. It means that vncinstall was previously ran and there i sno need to create/edit the necessary files.
Did you try to run vncserver to see if it starts?

Check the vncserver script to see if the $fontPath refers to the correct location of fonts in your system.

I searched for a solution to this for ages: No result
Workaround was to uninstall realvnc and then install the vnc4server and xvnc4viewer packages. They work fine.

you should not be running vncserver as root !
