CentOS - Can't get VNC to display properly
 
I installed VNC on my VPS using a guide I found on Webhostingtalk.com. I installed KDE. It all works but when I view the VPS through VNC on my windows PC the text on the screen appears to be squares as if its a non supported language.

I've uploaded a screenshot to better help you understand what I mean. I'm fairly new to Linux so if you ask me to do anything I would appreciate a little explanation or follow guide ;)

wow weird; I've never seen that. I know it's not what you want to hear but I've never had any trouble with tightvnc. what vnc server do you have on the linux machine? what vnc client on the windows box?

Thank you for your reply. As per what i've said above, I've resolved the problem by just doing:
# vncserver -kill :1
and then rebooting it using:
# vncserver

For reference this was running on CentOS 5 with DirectAdmin. I'm not sure of the versions of the VNC client and server so apologies for this.
