Re: Completely confused by VNC packaging in Fedora 10

The VNC packages in F11 actually use TigerVNC.  TigerVNC is based on
RealVNC, so they just dropped in the program and didn't change the

There is no plain Tightvnc or Realvnc in F11 -- the TigerVNC package
just uses the generic "vncserver" and "vncviewer" names.

The VNC packaging is definitely confusing.

Just search for the VNC packages and install them -- the descriptions
won't mention TigerVNC or TightVNC either, but you'll know once you
install them.  There should be a "TigerVNC Client" under your
Applications->Internet menu afterwards.
