Centos + gnome + VNC = black screen...no Gnome
Posted on 2011-09-07
I've installed vnc on Centos,...about 5 times now...
For whatever reason...this time... I get a black screen with big black x...and no Window manager.
I've followed the various wiki's and forums where other people have the same issue, but nothing is resolving it for me. I've installed this several times before but I don't remember it being this painful.
yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"
yum install vnc-server
Service vncserver start
Then configured xstartup per the wiki...
I can SSH to the box, and i'm trying to install vncserver from command shell.
Each time I test with 192.168.8.253:1
...prompts me for pw,.... then black screen and black x...no GUI.
Not sure what other details I can provide.
