Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I can't seem to connect to vnc. I been to yast -> Network Services -> xinetd and turned ON all vnc services. And then when I type "vncserver" as a normal user in the console I get:
xauth: (argv):1: bad display name "hostname:6" in "add" command
New 'X' desktop is hostname:6
Starting applications specified in /home/me//.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /home/me//.vnc/hostname:6.log
Here's the output of the hostname:6.log file:
Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 0
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
and start again.
Couldnt get a file descriptor referring to the console
If I type: "vncserver" as root I get -
xauth: (argv):1: bad display name "hostname:7" in "add" command
New 'X' desktop is hostname:7
Starting applications specified in /root/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /root/.vnc/hostname:7.log
In the hostname:7.log I get -
vncext: VNC extension running!
vncext: Listening for VNC connections on port 5907
vncext: Listening for HTTP connections on port 5807
vncext: created VNC server for screen 0
Could not init font path element /usr/share/fonts/local, removing from list!
Could not init font path element /usr/share/fonts/CID, removing from list!
xrdb: No such file or directory
xrdb: can't open file '/root/.Xresources'
X is running and I am trying not to kill X just to start vnc. Also, the only way I can start/stop/kill vncserver is via ssh. There's no firewall or tcp wrapper.
