problem with vnc viewer not drawing a window
vncviewer starts, but gives this error message
main: InStream max string length exceeded
It will not draw a window
Here's the log from the machine running vncserver
Getting interface configuration (4): Device not configured

xrdb: Can't open display ':1'
xsetroot: unable to open display ':1'
xterm Xt error: Can't open display: :1
twm: unable to open display ":1"
I tried setting the DISPLAY variable to this
and here are the contents of /sys/.vnc/xstartup
xsetroot -solid grey
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
Could someone help me troubleshoot this? Thanks.
What is slightly irritating is I had vnc working on another (now dead)
computer, and I can't find the tutorial from which I got my original
