Uninstall TigerVNC?

I was trying to provide a remote desktop solution to my Windows users and had them install the TightVNC client.

Then, when I went to install the server, I installed the TigerVNC-server by mistake.

I used:
#yum install tigervnc-server
Now, when I try to run:
#yum install tightvnc-server

The machine says:
Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Package tigervnc-server-1.0.90-0.12.20100420svn4030.fc13.i686 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
Of course, neither client, the TightVNC or the TigerVNC client will connect to the server.

I'd like to get back to zero by uninstalling both and starting over.

Thanks for helping!

Did you try removing them?:

yum remove tigervnc-server

yum remove tightvnc-server

I still unlearning Windows, I guess.

# yum remove tigervnc-server

works fine. Thanks!

Then I try:

# yum install tightvnc-server

and it tells me I'm installing tigervnc-server

Running Transaction
Installing : tigervnc-server-1.0.90-0.12.20100420svn4030.fc13.i686 1/1

tigervnc-server.i686 0:1.0.90-0.12.20100420svn4030.fc13


And, when I'm done, neither client, the tightvnc viewer or the tigervnc viewer will connect.

I set the server up in Fedora to accept remote connections with a password.

Thanks for helping!
