Ubuntu 11.04

gridengine version 6.2u5-1ubuntu1

I start a desktop with the vncserver command.

My ~/.vnc/xstartup ends with 'gnome-session'.

I connect to it using chicken-of-the-VNC on my MacOSX Lion system.

I run 'qmon'. Much of qmon works, but several critical tasks show hopelessly garbled grid layouts. I have filed a bug report, but I suspect that there is something I am missing that would render (ahem) them legible.

Another possible option would be FreeNX / NX server. This option is fast, secure, and available cross platform.

As of yet there is not a server for OSX, but there is a client.
