Unhappy vncserver not working after yum update


I have updated my system using yum update (livna configured).

When I start vncserver everything seems to be normal however the server is not starting. Log file:

xsetroot: unable to open display ':1'
vncconfig: unable to open display ":1"
xterm Xt error: Can't open display: :1


I think the problem is related to Xvnc. "Xvnc :1" gives "Segmentation Fault".

I have solved the problem replacing vncserver in the distribution with metavnc-server-0.5.1-1.
