I have recently tried to install RealVNC onto the CentOS 5.3 VPS that I own.
Unlucky for me, this happened to be a big fail.
I got this error produced in the errorlog from RealVNC:
Xvnc Free Edition 4.1.2

See http://www.realvnc.com for information on VNC.

xsetroot: unable to open display ':1'

Can someone help me out of this? I followed the tutorial here:
The install was pointed towards the GNOME Interface.
Furthermore, instead of
yum -y groupinstall gnome
yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment" which did work out for me.
Before I have ran the install, the entire VPS got updated by the yum update command.
How do I resolve this error so that the VNC will work as I would like to install a few applications on there that need to be controlled through a mouspointer.
Thanks in advance.
