openSuse 10.2: Trying to get tightVNC to work with KDE. edit: Solved!

Edit: This problem is solved.
I looked around in YaST2 and found the sections on allowing remote administration. After enabling everything I needed to, I was able to login via Chicken of the VNC. Thanks for looking, anyway!

Hi, everyone

I'm trying to setup a tightVNC server so that I can control an openSuse Linux box with Chicken of the VNC on Mac OSX.

What I've tried so far:
  • Typing vncserver :0 w. KDE running - results in a "Fatal Server Error".
  • Typing vncserver :1 w. KDE running - results in a new desktop that I can control, but that doesn't run KDE, just X.
  • Typing vncserver :0 w. no X server - result:
    Starting applications specified in /root/.vnc/xstartup
    Log file is root/.vnc/myUserName:0.log
    However, I cannot access this desktop.
  • Typing vncserver :1 w. no X server - result:
    New 'X' desktop is myUserName:1
    Starting applications specified in /root/.vnc/xstartup
    Log file is root/.vnc/myUserName:0.log

I have used vncpasswd to set a password (no view-only password), but I've entered that password in Chicken of the VNC, as well, so I don't think that's the problem.

What I'm aiming for is to be able to control the desktop of the Linux machine in KDE. What am I doing wrong?
