Fedora 14 and VNC server

So in higher versions of Fedora and RHEL there is no VNC server, it is renamed tiger-vnc, and for Fedora, it is downloaded like this :
#yum install tigervnc-server

Configuring it :
# vncserver First startup of VNC server
You will require a password to access your desktops.
Password:xxxx
Verify:xxxx
xauth: creating new authority file /root/.Xauthority
New ‘localhost.localdomain:1 (root)’ desktop is localhost.localdomain:1
Creating default startup script /root/.vnc/xstartup
Starting applications specified in /root/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /root/.vnc/localhost.localdomain:1.log

# vim /root/.vnc/xstartup Configuration file – editing

twm & This is the last line in config file – which GUI is started.
Instead of twm you can put startkde or gnome-session

After this it is necessary to restart VNC server, so that the change is accepted :
# vncserver -kill :1
# vncserver
