Description Joshua Jensen 2001-08-24 18:19:52 EDT
Description of Problem:

When running nvcpasswd, it will fail with a terribly undescriptive error
message about not being able to record the password.  The problem is, in my
experience, the fact that it can't write to ~/.vnc/passwd, because the
directory doesn't exist.  Should the vncpasswd command create this
directory, or at least complain about it not existing?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

vnc-3.3.3r2-18



Thanks,

Joshua
