Error with VNC Server. Please help

Hi, when I'm trying to run vncserver, that's what the .log file says. when I do netstat -l  or netstat -an, I don't see the vncserver running.. So I assume it's not working...
Anyone has an idea why ? Thanks in advance !

All those directories missing? Looks to me like Xwindows not installed on the server. Do they exist?

hmm how can I see if it is installed ?
Gabriel OrozcoSolution ArchitectCommented:
if you have a rpm based distribution:

rpm -qa | grep x

and you should see all the xfree, xfont, xterm etc. packages.

if it is a debian based distro, then (I think) apt-cache search xorg

and if it is slackware, ls /var/log/packages/x*

hope this help.

p.s. install X. it's really missing and you need it working for vnc to be useful.
