Autostart Vnc

Took me a while to find this so I thought I'd write it down. Of course its easy when you know how.

Edit /etc/sysconfig/vncservers

Add the following


Where 1 is the display to start the vncserver on, and username is the name of the user you want to start vnc as (Not root). Simple as that. You should also run vncpasswd first and set the vnc password on the system.

Now a quick explanation

The /etc/sysconfig dir contains information on user services to be started up (unlike the /etc/rx.d dir that starts up system services). Information on these can be found in

RedHat docs

or on
