RE: [Re: [[SLUG] VNC on Live Server for RH 7.1 [Next Round]]]

Louis> here is the deal here. My server apparently had
vnc installed, but I never realised it. The version
installed are:
 
[root@ensim /root]# rpm --query vnc
vnc-3.3.3r2-18.6
[root@ensim /root]# rpm --query vnc-server
vnc-server-3.3.3r2-18.6
[root@ensim /root]#

However a few weeks ago I went ahead and installed
a third party vnc package.
 
I do not know exactly where the RH vncserver etc..
got installed.
 
However the one from the 3rd party was installed at
 
[root@ensim /root]# which vncserver
/usr/local/bin/vncserver
[root@ensim /root]#
 
If RH installs in the same directory, then it got overwritten.
 
So my question is how do I give the RH one priority ?
 
Do I rebuild the rpms for vnc and vncserver ?

display would be helpful.
