We use OpenSuse 11.3, and we enable VNC remote administration using YAST

I can connect but always show me a black screen with a little wihite arrow that I can Move (I attach a capture)

What's the matter?

Regards
Screen Capture

you have to do following changes on YAST2

System->/etc/syconfig Editor
Desktop->Display manager:
DISPLAYMANAGER_REMOTE_ACCESS = YES

After exiting yast, in a console screen (<CTRL><ALT><F1>)
sign-in as root and type "init 3", once X-Windows is down restart it
with "init 5".

Try connecting again

Have you tried with X11 forwarding through ssh? (ssh -X)
