I am trying to run vnc within a vserver.

My goal is to run VMWARE in vnc on the vserver, thus having a remotely
accessible winblows machine available for a must have app. None of that is
important at this point though.

Understandably, I must have certain X components installed in the vserver in
order to run vnc, XFree86, twm, fonts, etc. I have run into a problem that I
don't understand entirely. Here is the log output from the vncserver.

19/12/02 17:37:53 Xvnc version 3.3.6 - built Nov 26 2002 15:19:26

xterm: no available ptys: No such file or directory

I have two questions. First, how do I work around the "no available ptys"
problem. I don't understand well enough how the vserver is different from a
stock server in this regard. Second, does anyone have any comments or
concerns about what I am trying to do with vnc and vmware?

Thanks and have a happy holiday season.
