Description Tim Waugh 2000-10-26 11:54:32 EDT
The vncserver initscript is bad:

- if you start it more than once, it starts more than one vncserver
- if you stop it, it stops _all_ vncservers, even ones that it didn't start

I think that a nicer way of doing it would be to add this to

# Uncomment the following line to have a VNC server start automatically
# :1 local /usr/bin/Xvnc :1 -localhost

/etc/sysconfig/vncservers should make this better (in 3.3.3r2-4).
