Description of problem:
vncserver not running at startup
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC7 Test 3
Please see steps below.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.In Services, checkmark and start vncserver. Save.
2. Restart computer. Look at vncserver in Services. It is not running.
3. vncserver can be started manually from Terminal with: service vncserver start
vncserver not running if started with System > Administration > Services
Once checkmarked, vncserver should always run at startup.
In order to make vncserver work, it was necessary to do some setup steps as per
Tom Chung's VNC 101 Tutorial.
Not sure of how Fedora can do this, but some warning might be given that
vncserver does not work "straight out of the box" by putting a checkmark in
front of it in Services. Additional setup needs to be done.

Could you tell me what exactly you have to do, please? I will improve this bit
in future release (starts without any additional setup)
Adam, I'm not sure you can improve this, but here is what I did.
When you install a new system, typically you go to Admin > Services and check
the services you want running. For example, ssh, http, sendmail, etc. These
start when you press their Start button. But vncserver does not start in that
way. It does not start until you do a few more steps. These are best
described in the following tutorial: http://fedoranews.org/tchung/vnc/
The key additions to make vncserver run are the addition of
VNCSERVERS="1:username" to the file /etc/sysconfig/vncservers
The uncommenting of
I don't see how all of this can be done by waving a magic wand. But if you
have a way, that would be good.
Thank you for your interest in my problem. I believe I am OK for now.
FC7t3 is an amazing OS.
And then service vncserver start
