Description of problem:
On fresh machine install of fedora test 3

Tried to start vncserver for a user. Looked at log and saw that the symbolic
link in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11 to ../../../../etc/X11/xserver was missing, repaired
this by hand and then get the following when trying to start vncserver :

[aoleary@muon aoleary]$ vncserver
New 'muon.[removed].com:8 (aoleary)' desktop is muon.[removed].com:8
Starting applications specified in /home/aoleary/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /home/aoleary/.vnc/muon.[removed].com:8.log

2. create user
3. call /usr/bin/vncserver

Actual Results:  See description

Expected Results:  Currently using Redhat 9 on another machine and vncserver
works fine (vn c version vnc-3.3.3r2-47

Additional info:
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2003-11-08 09:04:21 EST
That symbolic link (which is present for me) is owned by XFree86.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2003-11-09 04:50:55 EST
So why exactly is this bug reassigned to XFree86?  I don't see the
problem.  On a fresh OS install or upgrade from a supported
distribution release, the /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xserver symbolic
link is present.  What is the problem?
