I have been trying to install TightVNCServer but I just cannot get it right.
Below is the messages I get: It looks like there is an authentication problem with the tightvncserver package. I am also running the cubieboard 1 on a DVI connector to a Mecer monitor (NOT 1080p) and the display doesnt come up. If I run it on a 1080p TV no problem, it looks great. So please can you help me with some quick fixes:

1. tightvncserver not installing properly ?
2. PC Monitor connected via DVI/HDMI plug no display ?

Thanks in advance..

I suggest you ask this one on the Linaro list, as it looks specific to a package availability, having nothing to do with Cubies.

As a Fedora/Centos user, I do most of my activity on their arm lists.

Excuse my ignorance. Where will I find the Linaro list ?

Thanks
