    Start VNCserver (before login) using chkconfig ??


    Hello all,

    I want to start my VNC server before logging in, i try to search the forum on how to start an application. i found something call chkconfig, which is basically a easy way to modify your /etc/rc[1-6] files.

    this is what i have done (and it works)
    > chkconfig --level 345 vncserver
    > chkconfig --list | grep vncserver
    (and it shows that vncserver is on for 3, 4, and 5)

    Now, I reboot my machine, VNC server wont start before log in, worst yet, it doesnt start after login!! What am i doing wrong?

    Thanks

    Make sure when you installed VNC, that you didnt use the Tar/GZ or any file like that, but that you installed the RPM File...

    Code:
    rpm -i vnc-4.0-1.i386.rpm
    If you got any other errors like required file missing, than get the rpm file of it.
