I use the default vnc that installs with Centos. I'm using the default
client that is installed with the Centos 6 VM. I believe the default now
is TigerVNC, which I think used to be TightVNC. The #2 above seems
accurate to describe my problem.
Again, I have a Centos 5 server with Xen on it. I'm trying to install a
Centos 6 VM under that system. It's a fully virtuallized VM. I can
install the system just fine, but when it's time to reboot and bring up
the new VM , all I get is a bunch of garbage on the screen as if X11
can't start, over and over. I thought I read somewhere where this type
of setup uses a vnc connection.
