Xvnc couldn't start-->trying to run vnc.....


Hello


I'm running a redhat9-shrike-router where the gui is running well...locallly
I just wanted to install vnc .......here, what I've already doneas user "pablo"):
  • vncpasswd
    --->define pwd.....

    then I changed this file to.....:
    -->$HOME/.vnc/xstartup (the home-dir of user "pablo")....

    #!/bin/sh
    # Sample ~/.vnc/xstartup

    xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
    #xsetroot -solid grey
    #xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
    startkde &
and then this error message appears when i want to start the vnc service like this:
Code:
[pablo@router1 pablo]$ vncserver :1 -name VNCServer -depth 32 -geometry 1000x700
Couldn't start Xvnc; trying default font path.
Couldn't start Xvnc process.

....I don't understand that, cause everywhere is written, that's it's just "so easy" to configure this service....
here the file /etc/sysconfig/vncserver:
Code:
# The VNCSERVERS variable is a list of display:user pairs.
#
# Uncomment the VNCSERVERS line below to start a VNC server on display :1
# as my 'myusername' (adjust this to your own).  You will also
# need to set a VNC password; run 'man vncpasswd' to see how
# to do that.
#
# DO NOT RUN THIS SERVICE if your local area network is
# untrusted!  For a secure way of using VNC, see
# <URL:http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/sshvnc.html>.

VNCSERVERS="1:pablo"
#VNCOPTIONS="-depth 8 -geometry 1024x768 -alwaysshared"
have I forgotten anything,......? ...please help.....the path''s:
  • export PATH=$PATH:/sbin:/usr/bin:/var/X11R6/bin:/sbin
thanks
pablo

Well it look like it is running - are you having problems connecting? Make sure you specify the display when you vnc - eg "ip.of.server.here:1". Also check your firewall rules:
iptables -nL

well.... yes it is running.....but ---->what about the error messages about "Xvnc" above........?

I stopped the iptables service, so.... the firewall policies doesn't affect the connection......but the vncviewer on a windows-machine reports: failed to connect to server......when i enter "ip:1" after starting the vnc-service on the router...

kde is installed, and the local gui works....
please help me....thanks for your advices
pablo

ps -ef | grep vnc
netstat -nlp

well it seems to have died right enough. Remove hte lock file with:
rm -f /tmp/.X1-lock

Try running the vnc server with no options to start with and see if it starts:
vncserver
