    Clicking on the link in my signature would make a good start.

    Imagine, you want to help somebody based on information you have provided.

    Try checking here The Zenwalk User Repository - View Home, maybe joining the forum there.

    They will know what you are talking about! Lol. Hint: all dependencies must be built around it before install will function -- libdvdcss2 included.

    WTH, see this: Zenwalk Support • View topic - VLC

    Cheers!

    He means, if I may make a guess, that you didn't provide much info on what the problem is.

    It's the equivalent of saying 'my car doesn't start'. Now nobody can guess whether I lost the keys, ran it dry, have a dead battery or that there's water in my carburettor.


    Now usually there's a lot of questions possible to such a short question for help.
    - Did you install VNC?
    - Do you need server or client functionality?
    - Do you know the difference and installed accordingly?
    - Did it at one time work?
    - What changed?
    - Do you get an error message?
    - Can you ping the target?
    - Are you sure it has VNC server installed?
    - Can you see the VNC port on the target (nmap)?
    - What OS has the target?
    - Can you VNC to other machines?
    But most of these questions might be irrelevant depending on the situation. Because it could be anything really. The target you're trying to VNC into is behind a NAT, you tightened your firewall policies, or your target did. Encryption settings. For all I know, the target isn't even switched on.

    I think that is what Segfault meant. Nothing personal. It's just, the more info you give the easier it is to answer any questions you have.

    For example: "I'm at work trying to VNC into my home machine, which is behind a NAT router" will get a whole different answer (from a different poster probably too) as "I'm cross-compiling VNC for an ARM based machine but make quits with the following message: blah make error blah code blah exit blah".


    And besides, this is the Slackware part of the forum, and slackers have a reputation to uphold
    (just kidding, just describe what you're trying to do and how the machine responds)
    Can't tell an OS by it's GUI
