Sorry, but no.  Not one of those tells my why VNC was working just fine under 
Dapper, but now under edgy I get crap.

Why is vnc looking for "/etc/X11/xserver/SecurityPolicy" when the xserver 
directory doesn't even exist?
Why can't vnc create the desktop on :1 like it used to?
I'm just not getting why I'm not required to spend days to figure out what 
just worked in the previous version.

The errors I get above are still what I get.  

I don't understand why we couldn't have kept vnc as easy to use in Edgy as it 
was in Dapper.
IN Dapper all I had to do was:
vncserver -geometry 1024x768 
Then from another machine:
vncviewer homepc:1
enter the password, and viola I was in.
Why can't that work now?

See Ya'
