Hello,

I am VERY new to linux. I need to make this pc remote accessible, and I'm choosing to install VNC on it. I have downloaded the linux X86 version from the website and unpacked the files. I can see all the vnc files in there, but I have no clue how to install vncserver, so I can connect to it from remote places. I'm guessing yo must have to go into the terminal and run the install from there, but if so, I do not know the commands. Please Help!!


the files are:

animatedMemoryImageSource.class
authenticationPanel.class
clipboardFrame.class
DesCipher.class
index.vnc
license.txt
optionsFrame.class
README
rfbProto.class
shared.vnc
vncCanvas.class
vncconnect
vncconnect.man
vncinstall
vncpsswrd
vncpsswrd.man
vncserver
vncserver.man
vncviewer
vncviewer.class
vncviewer.jar
vncviewer.man
Xvnc
Xvnc.man

Does that help at all?

Looks like the contents of a package. I'm not familier with slackware, but I believe you'd be better off installing from source. You'd probably have to run console as root and use a
/. install.sh command.

There's a README file in that list-it may contain specific installation instructions in there.I'd check that out first.
There are a lot of VNC versions out there-if you post a link to where you got yours,it may help.:)
