  1. vnc server not working in Mandriva 2008.0

    Hi

    I get a strange error when I start vncserver:

    Could not init font path element unix/:-1, removing from list!

    Fatal server error:
    could not open default font 'fixed'
    XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":1.0"
    after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

    I googled the web but could not find a solution; even installing 'xfs'
    package did not work.
    Could you suggest something? My box runs uptodate Mandriva 2008.0 powerpack.

    Thanks in advance

    Josh


    by the way:
    I thank folks who answered my previous post (ssh port 22 ...) - could not
    do so because of early purge of message from this newserver - the definitive
    solution was installing openssh server package and starting sshd - more than
    likely in the past this was done by default during setup of Mandriva Linux
    on the pc. Using nmap was helpful to verifiy open / closed ports.

    Which version of vncserver have you installed, tightvnc, or vnc-server?

    How are you starting it? Before you can start it for a user at boot, the
    ~/.vnc directory has to exist, with the correct files in it.

    Try logging in as the user you wan't to be connecting as, then running
    vncserver. It should ask you for the password to set, etc, then start
    the server. After that, you can set /etc/sysconfig/vncservers, if you
    want it to start at boot.

    fonts maybe) but .... hey now it works!
