x11vnc not working


I need some help in using x11vnc.I downloaded for my opensuse Linuxbox the x11vnc.0.9.3-1.1.src.rpm. After that I run rpm -ivh x11vnc... with no problem. Then I like to start with the command x11vnc -display :0
and it says command not found.
What is wrong? Do I have to do some other configuration?
Thanks a lot for your help!!!!!!!

The src.rpm is the source rpm files which contains the source files used to build the rpm. Did you build the new x11vnc rpm and installed that one?
Look for non src.rpm one. Just .rpm version for ready to install.

If installed then the the file is in /usr/bin by most defaults I seen.

The src.rpm will install in usually /usr/src/Redhat based on Redhat system rpm command. Unsure on Suse systems.
