    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.:)
