VNC doesn't do GLX, but that doesn't mean that Blender cannot be used
under VNC. I just tested it, and it works fine but slow.

Johnny : does Blender work when you use it at the local display ? And do
you have GLX and DRI in your XF86Config in /etc/X11/ ? I use this :

    Section "Module"
        Load  "GLcore"
        Load  "dri"
        Load  "glx"

    Section "DRI"
        Mode 0666

and have drm enabled in my kernel config for my video card :
    device          radeondrm       # DRM ATI Radeon up to 9000/9100
As you can see I have a ATI MOBILITY RADEON 7500 (IBM T30 laptop)

Succes !
