I'm trying to set up Tiger VNC server on CentOS 6.3 but I'm getting the following error message when I run the command vncserver:

WARNING: The first attempt to start Xvnc failed, possibly because the font catalog is not properly configured. Attempting to determine an appropriate font path for this system and restart Xvnc using that font path ... Could not start Xvnc.

/usr/bin/Xvnc: symbol lookup error: /usr/bin/Xvnc: undefined symbol: pixman_composite_trapezoids
/usr/bin/Xvnc: symbol lookup error: /usr/bin/Xvnc: undefined symbol: pixman_composite_trapezoids

So we managed to resolve this by just updating everything on the system:

yum update

I would love to know what was updated that got it working, but I haven't been able to figure it out so far. Hope this helps!

EDIT: OK, I figured out what needs to be updated, go ahead and update these 3 packages:

yum install pixman pixman-devel libXfont

That should do it!
