I'm assuming you installed fl_TT with yum on k12ltsp 5.0. The two
packages from the 5.0 repo
which broadcasting depends are

source http://sourceforge.net/projects/vnc-reflector/

source http://www.tightvnc.com/download.html

the first one is obviously the reflector, which looks like Eric built
it for 5.0. The teachertool-tightvnc is actually just tightvnc's
vncviewer. We had to rename it to teachertool-vncviewer to resolve the
name conflict between the realvnc vncviewer which is used for
control/monitor. I wonder if the teachertool-tightvnc package was
compiled under FC5, since it says 4.4.2? Try downloading the source
tarball, unpack it, cd to the dir, and compile it with

make World

then mv the vncviewer binary as teachertool-vncviewer to /usr/bin

let us know if that solves the problem.
