Installing realvnc on Linux

Hi,

I'm running Oracle Linux 7 - 64 bit (PRODUCT_VERSION=7.2). I'm currently using RealVNC 5.3.0.
I've upgraded this several times, put the instructions in notepad...I can't find them.

I've downloaded RealVNC 5.3.1 and want to upgrade from 5.3.0 to 5.3.1. Since oracle Linux is very
similar to red hat, I have the VNC-Server-5.3.1-Linux-x64.rpm file.

how do I install this?
Thanks James

Assuming Oracle Linux uses rpm..
Code:
rpm -U --replacepkgs VNC-Server-5.3.1-Linux-x64.rpm

Yes,,,oracle Linux is based off red hat. I was using rpm -U VNC-Server-5.3.1-Linux-x64.rpm, but was not logged in as root. I knew I needed to be...and thought I was logged in as root, but was not. After on as root, I got pkg already installed. I then used:
rpm -U --replacepkgs VNC-Server-5.3.1-Linux-x64.rpm
This did work.
