After using yum to install kdenetwork (Krdc) does not work
Last modified: 2008-02-08 06:50:19 EST
Description of problem:
After installing kdenetwork-3.5.8-9.fc7 (to use Krdc) for RDP connection Krdc
loads up and when you try to connect the following error occurs.
Could not start rdesktop; make sure it is installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Yum install kdenetwork
Go to menu > Internet > Krdc
Start Krdc enter rdp:/address and error occurs.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kdenetwork
2. Menu > Internet > Krdc
3. rdp:/address then connect error occurs.
I have a RHEL5.1 Enterprise Server install on my laptop for work and it
functions correctly. I used yum to install it and did not have these errors.
Krdc should not require configuration after it is installed via yum.
I have a Fedora 8 machine as well and it gives the same error message.
Please contact me if you have any further questions.
Doh, looks like we missed
yum install rdesktop
should do the trick.
I am sorry, my mistake for not thinking but super thanks for the quick reply!
This was a life saver, I needed to access a Windows 2003 and I have no Windows
boxes at home.
Thanks a million for the FAST response time.
Glad to hear it.

Not sure if this warrants a new package build/release, but we'll make sure this
gets included in the next update.
I guess this can be closed then :)
