Thank you for taking the time to read my question.
I upgraded to F15 a few weeks ago. It all worked well. Then the other day VNC stopped working. I VNC from my Windows XP pc to my F15 server. The only thing I can figure happened is that an update (yum update) has messed up my settings.
I now see that you need to type systemctl to see what services are running. You used to be able to go to a menu item to see that. I wish that was still there. Anyway, this is what I get when I check on the status of the VNC server service:
[root@localhost brad]# systemctl status vncserver.service
vncserver.service - LSB: start|stop|restart|try-restart|status|force-reload vncserver
Loaded: loaded (/etc/rc.d/init.d/vncserver)
Active: failed since Tue, 11 Oct 2011 23:51:06 -0500; 21s ago
Process: 2054 ExecStart=/etc/rc.d/init.d/vncserver start (code=exited, status=2/INVALIDARGUMENT)
I have no idea what the error message means.
This is my setting for VNC:
VNCSERVERARGS="-geometry 1280x1024 -depth 24"
On my Windows PC the error I get is
"Unable to resolve host by name: No such host is known. (11001)"
I'm trying to connect to 192.168.0.5:1
I have ports 5900 and 5901 open. They were open before as well. I don't think any of my firewall settings have changed.
I suppose VNC server service is not running, and I don't know how to get it started.
Any help would be great.
UPDATE: Oct 13, 2011:
I found the logs... or a log anyway. it says this:
Oct 13 19:21:11 localhost systemd: vncserver.service: control process exited, code=exited status=2
Oct 13 19:21:11 localhost systemd: Unit vncserver.service entered failed state.
