Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

while following this Guide , i did this:

yum install vnc-server

and it installed success fully , but

rpm -q vnc-server

returns

package vnc-server is not installed

while

yum install vnc-server

says

Package tigervnc-server-module-1.1.0-5.e16_4.1.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

also vncserver , vncpasswd and other vnc commands return command not found

centOS 6.4 is on a VPS (vmware) with KDE Gui

any clues to what should i check or what to do is appreciated

In CentOS 6.x you need to install the tigervnc-server (not tigervnc-server-module) package.

On the CentOS Wiki (http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/VNC-Server) it's noted:

If you are running CentOS 6, the server is: tigervnc-server not: vnc-server

Hope this helps.
