See my previous post for how to install it.
A couple of days later and the time is still in synch.
When I logged on there was a pop-up saying there were some updates.
Put in root password and you get to see which are updates, the ones with a symbol next to them requires a reboot (kernel update in my case).
The VNC that was installed was a VNC client, not the server.
There aren’t that many packages by default – this is probably because all depositories are not enabled and that this is not Fedora.
After installing vmware-tools, a reboot or two and the resolution can be changed to larger than 800×600. And Unity works as well!
