Beginners / Any Cubieboard users in South Africa ?

Any Cubieboard users in South Africa ?

(I want to speak to someone regarding support with problems I'm having with Cubieboard 1)

Much appreciated... Thanks
I suspect my APT Repositories are not pointing to the right places. Can someone please help
me with the correct links to the repositories ? Currently I have this in: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linaro-overlay-ppa.list:

deb quantal main
deb-src quantal main

Cannot install TightVncServer, even C-Compiler is not installed.
Can anyone please HELP ?
Without a VNC server and the C-Compiler the Cubieboard 1 is basically useless to me. I am impressed by having the Linux (Linaro) flashed to Nand, it looks quite fast and reliable. Otherwise I am going to look at selling the Cubieboard. Anybody interested ?

linaro@cubieboard:~$ cc
-bash: cc: command not found

I am a complete newbie. I have managed to flash the Nand of a Cubieboard 1 with Ubuntu. I works well, is quite fast and relaible, but I am having problems installing some packages. e.g. tightvnc and Lazarus. It looks like the APT-Repositories does not 'pick up' the packages properly and do not want to install.  ( I am also running Ubuntu on some RPi's and I had no problems installing lazarus and tightvncserver etc.

Any quick fixes will be appreciated ?
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..

linaro@cubieboard:~$ sudo apt-get install tightvncserver
