I am new to linux and I've just installed Fedora Core 6 onto my computer. I wanted to install remote desktop when I noticed that there was a preference setting for it but I couldn't find the program itself. I searched the forums for remote desktop and found one that suggested rdesktop (for accessing a windows computer from fc6) and gave the terminal command for it :
yum install rdesktop tsclient
so I opened a terminal and typed this in. The terminal says
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
and then it just hangs with the cursor flashing. I thought that I might have done something wrong so I tried Applications->Add/Remove Software. This pops a dialog up saying I'm trying to run 'pirut' and asking for the root password. When I enter it, the dialog dissappears and that's it.
I tried searching the forums for this problem but the only post that I could find that mentioned something similar was originally posted under a different heading. After the original problem is solved, the poster mentions this but there is no reply given.
Does anyone know how to fix this? or if there is some way to install / remove programs without using these two methods?
