  1. hmm... i looked up x11vnc it looks nice! how do I set it up? the instructions on his site are confusing and also, I can get VNC to work on my home network with Linux. the problem is when the scope leaves this network.
  2. thanks so much! i had tried running ifconfig before, I didn't know I needed root. I'll let you know if I can fiddle around with VNC to get it to work.
  3. Thank you. I knew about MMC, but whenver I looked under Remote Administration, it only listed one option: "Remote Control of another machine (Linux/Unix, Windows)". so, I decided to take your advice and I clicked on it. Sure enough: it provides an option to allow control of the machine. I think I've got the server up and running, but I'm not sure. It displays this square-shaped window when I click "Launch (server)". the window has a logo with "RFB" and some sort of interface element to set the display number (it shows a "0"). I've been doing this in a VMware virtual machine on my Intel Mac, so I don't mess up the real system. Now, I know this is embarassing, but how do I find the ip address of the local machine on Linux? I want to try taking control of the virtual machine.
  4. Hi, So, as you can presume from the title, I need to set-up a VNC server, of any type, on a Linux machine so I can take control of it. The server machine is using Mandriva 2007 Powerpack+. I tried getting Tight-VNC to work, but I had problems with installation. And yep: make and I don't always get along well :unsure: Any help would be much appreciated. I'm actually doing this for a friend, so the sooner the better. Thanks so much! -Kylefish44
  5. Looking better, I have finally figured out how to use "Install Software" in MCC. However, it would work if I could just find the first Install CD...... Thanks, Kyle
  6. I tried that, but I got the following message: "./firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
  7. Nope, no improvements yet. Trying my best not to get frustrated......
  8. Command not found. I have tried this from different directories countless times.
  9. Jagwah, I was able to get the icon, but when I double-clicked it said "Starting Firefox..." for about a minute and then stopped. Sorry, but nothing has worked yet. I am desperate for help.....
  10. No, sorry. Tried both methods (each post) and still doesn't work. Please help!
  11. Hi! I'm new to Linux, and I have never installed software on it before. I am running Mandrakelinux 10.1 Community w/ KDE. How do you install Firefox I have managed to download the tar.gz file, but haven't been able to do anything with it beyond that. Any help at all would be appreciated.
