Well last time I remember reading anything about vnc on amd64, the vnc
server was known to be broken, while the client worked fine. I have no
idea if this is still the case or not. By the looks of it, perhaps the
vnc server is still broken on amd64.
A search of the mailing list archive may shed some light on things.
Seems they still are.
As proposed, i installed the fedora rpm via alien. Works fine.
