I grabbed the RPM and installed it but now I have the problem that when
I run vncviewer only a gray desktop appears and yes I do have twm
installed in my PATH.

It seems that the RPM file installs the package just as described in the
README file that comes with the VNC distribution for Unix. The only thing
it does not do is the following (which unfortunately does not help me get
rid of the gray desktop):

install Vncviewer /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults

So how do I get VNC to work?

(P.S. I checked the faq but as I said twm is in my path)

Thanks,

Neil
