Description Pavel Nichoski 2014-08-16 16:44:24 UTC
Description of problem:

On this documentation web page "8.2.2. Connecting to VNC Server":

The second sentence says
" If you have not done it yet, install the package containing vncviewer: "

And proceeds with the following example
"# yum install tigervnc-server"

The package containing vncviewer is "tigervnc" or "vnc" (same package), but not "tigervnc-server" as the example states, so the example should be changed to either
"# yum install tigervnc"
"# yum install vnc"

Dear Pavel,

The names of the packages have been fixed in the documentation.
