Error at VNCServer in CentOS VPS. Won't load remote desktop.

I have this problem.

I recently bought a VPS with CentOS installed, 512 MB RAM and 80 GB ram, but I have a problem, I want to get VNC Desktop with it but I couldn't.

I installed KDE, GNOME but no one works.

This is my log from vncserver:

Couldn't open RGB_DB '/usr/share/X11/rgb'

Xvnc Free Edition 4.1.2
Copyright (C) 2002-2005 RealVNC Ltd.
See for information on VNC.
Underlying X server release 70101000, The X.Org Foundation

And this is my xstartup:


# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
# exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
exec gnome-session &
And with RealVNC I only get a grey box with 3 options:
  • Accept clipboard from viewers
  • Send clipboard to viewers
  • Send primary selection to viewers

I need help plz.

PC Specs:

OS: CentOS 5.5 32bit
RAM: 512 MB
HDD: 80 GB
100mbps Connection.
