I'm trying to launch a pvm SXDE machine. I recently upgraded to 3.2 via the Ubuntu Hardy packages and now I can't seem to get vnc to launch.

I want VNC to launch a server after boot but I'm currently stuck with using the text console. I have tried using vnc=1 as before, but there are no vnc related log entries in xend.log to help me figure out why the vnc server is not launching. I have the libvncserver libraries, etc installed.

Using vnc=1 and vncviewer=1 launches vncviewer with -listen but the server never starts so vncviewer never launches a display.

I wanted to see if there are some common solutions that might work for this. If not then I can post entries from the xend.log, etc. But so far there are no errors being reported in xend.conf. The domain launches fine, but no VNC server is launched.
