I'm working on a Red Hat Linux server. VNC server started to act weird (i.e. the sessions became Spartan). So I decided to reboot VNC server.

I keep getting the following error message: "unable to start Xvnc, exiting"

Does anyone know what this means? The best thing I could come up via Google was that some packages needed to be updated, but everything was already up to date.


Where is your Xvnc path? As our last case, it is /usr/local/bin/Xvnc instead of the correct one /usr/bin/Xvnc.
