Hi all,
  I've tried this with tightvnc and regular vnc ebuilds: I emerge
(tight)vnc, and after tweaking the font path settings, I got vncserver
to launch an actual Xvnc process that wouldn't die. However, I'm having
2 problems:
  I'd like to use fluxbox, and if I put that in my .vnc/xstartup file,
if I start anything else in that file (like gkrellm or panel), the Xvnc
process will die. It has to be fluxbox, and only fluxbox.
  Secondly, when I connect from another box using vncviewer (on
Windows), colors are all messed up, and things don't redraw properly. I
was wondering if anyone else had this problem. My machine's a pismo
Powerbook.

Thanks,
Derek Greentree
