No, this hasn't worked for me on Fedora 10 for a while (yes, bugzilla
report filed).

Is it actually working for you?  Are you using the 'vncserver'
initscript to start the VNC session?

Yes and yes.  It works perfectly for me.  I've had no trouble at all.


Like Tim and unlike Mark, I also have trouble with this--I believe this is a selinux-enabled problem with respect to PackageKit/PolicyKit and VNC sessions, at least based on the googling that I've been able to do. I've tried changing policy from my actual console (which is inconveniently 7 feet off the ground in the garage), but have thus far been unable to have much luck--I haven't tried completely wide-open policies though. I did install yumex for finding installables, however. I use 'yum update' from the command line for regular updating.
