    Hi there,
    i have successfuly running utorrent with WebUI and FTP Server on my Leeware.
    But how can i set up firefox or another webbrowser on leeware, that i can see and use it in VNC Viewer?
    How can i run it on wine for example?
    Hope someone can help me.
    Thank you very much

    theoretical it needs to working but i really have no clue of linux.
    The second problem is, that utorrent is hiding the commandbox on the vnc viewer so i cant type commands...
    And its not need to be firefox, it can be another browser with less recources

    is really simple : you install it in putty (yum -y install firefox) and in your vnc, you type in the console : firefox ^^

    As there is no window manager, i run two vncserver in putty (vncserver :1 and vncserver :2)
    I launch two viewers on my pc, two see them both. In the first one i run wine uttorent.exe and in the second, firefox

    i managed to do it on leeware, but by installing kde desktop + firefox
    it runs ok, kde doesn't take that much ram.

    But after i installed it, i realize it wasn't very useful for me.

    Also don't seed the interest of running forefox with wine, since there is a linux version of firefox

    http://kde-redhat.sourceforge.net/ is the tutorial i used, pretty straight forward, use the yum method.

    after that, just do : yum install firefox
    and you are all set.

    to start kde, just type for shell once done : startkde &


    hope this helps!
