Minimum Install VNC Remote Desktop Server on Centos

I wrote an update for an article that i wrote a couple months ago here It’s a tutorial to install VNC on Linux Centos VPS. On that tutorial I was installing the group package of Gnome Desktop which will install all Gnome’s applications including Open Office. This of course requires a lot of space and RAM resources to be run on a VPS which most of the time we don’t need Open Office etc.

My self only use the VNC server that I installed in a VPS located in US datacenter to access some website which only available for US visitors. For browsing purposes I only need Gnome minimum install and Firefox browser and that is what I installed on this tutorial.

Installing Gnome and VNC Remote Desktop on Centos VPS

After writing a how-to on installing Gnome and VNC server on Ubuntu Linux, this time I blog on the same tutorial but now I use Centos 5.3 Linux.

It’s almost similar with Ubuntu, but on Centos we use YUM instead of apt-get command. Both package managers have its own fans, nevertheless both yum and apt-get deliver an easy to use package installer.

To read the how-to please go to: http://www.talk.web.id/2009/08/installing-vnc-remote-desktop-on-centos-vps/ as I write it for Talk Web ID. If you like the tutorial or have questions, please write on the comment box.

Recently I setup a Debian 4.0 VPS using xen image from jailtime.org, once the VM running I noticed that the load goes 1.0 all the time which make the VM very slow. From top command you’ll see the nash-hotplug process is the cause.

First you can kill it by execute the ‘kill -9 <process id>’ command (without the quotes), where <process id> is the process id of nash-hotplug. Then to automate killing the nash process every time you reboot the VPS run these commands: Continue reading Xen Debian VPS Problem With nash-hotplug Using 100% CPU Resource
