    CentOS Server GUI (Gnome) Help!


    I installed Gnome Desktop Manager, but it wont load when I try to connect to my server via VNC and I get a blank screen. If I use TWM it works though, but that interface sucks. I get this when I try to start it:

    Code:
    [toxhicide@toxhicide ~]$ startx kde
    
    OMITED USELESS INFORMATION
    
    Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default setting,
            (++) from command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational,
            (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
    (==) Log file: "/var/log/Xorg.0.log", Time: Thu Feb 11 17:28:09 2010
    (EE) Unable to locate/open config file
    
    Fatal server error:
    xf86OpenConsole: Cannot find a free VT: Inappropriate ioctl for device
    
    XIO:  fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
          after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
    Couldnt get a file descriptor referring to the console
    I know I used start kde but neither works. Please help.

    I don't think you should type kde in the startx command string.

    It should just take startx.

    Either way its the same error, so it works the same way. Ive tried startx SO many times.
