    Newbie question: Help with installing tightvnc/ XORG on Redhat


    Note: replace 'at' sign with at

    Im trying to get a vnc server started and I would also like to setup a GNOME desktop environment.

    I am using the following distro/release

    [root-at-lab bin]# grep -H . /etc/*-release
    /etc/redhat-release:Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.1 (Santiago)
    /etc/system-release:Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.1 (Santiago)
    [root-at-lab bin]#

    [root-at-lab bin]# yum list | grep vnc
    libvncserver.x86_64 0.9.7-4.el6 atanaconda-RedHatEnterpriseLinux-201105101844.x86_64/6.1

    x2vnc.x86_64 1.7.2-1.el6.rf rpmforge
    [root-at-lab bin]#

    In installed tightvnc-server.x86_64

    Now when I start VNC i get this error:
    [root-at-lab bin]# vncserver

    Warning: mtilab2.mtl.com:1 is taken because of /tmp/.X1-lock
    Remove this file if there is no X server mtilab2.mtl.com:1
    Couldn't start Xvnc; trying default font path.
    Please set correct fontPath in the vncserver script.

    New 'X' desktop is mtilab2.mtl.com:2

    Starting applications specified in /root/.vnc/xstartup
    Log file is /root/.vnc/mtilab2.mtl.com:2.log

    [root-at-lab bin]#

    From the error log -

    ########################################
    I guess at this point, the log points to Xserver and I would like to reinstall Xorg
    I tried to following a thread on this forum titled "How to install xorg on RedHatLinux?"
    (I cannot post links to external webpages till I post 15 posts)
    tatmtilab2 bin]# yum repolist
    Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, subscription-manager
    Updating Red Hat repositories.
    repo id repo name status
    epel Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 - x86_64 8,347
    rpmforge RHEL 6Server - RPMforge.net - dag

    I then tried the next command- and that doesnt work

    [root-at-lab ~]# yum install 'X Window System' 'GNOME Desktop Environment'
    Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, subscription-manager
    Updating Red Hat repositories.
    Setting up Install Process
    No package X Window System available.
    No package GNOME Desktop Environment available.
    Error: Nothing to do
    [root-at-lab ~]#

    Here is the problem- I dont know where the server is physically located as the admin is out of town. How can I fix the Xserver problem and get my VNC/Desktop working. If you need output of any files, let me know and I will post it.

    Im new to linux and loving it!!
