Tiger VNC on Centos 6.3 fails, font catalog not properly configured

Issue
Whe  I try to set up Tiger VNC server on CentOS 6.3 but I'm getting the following error message when I run the command vncserver:
WARNING: The first attempt to start Xvnc failed, possibly because the font catalog is not properly configured. Attempting to determine an appropriate font path for this system and restart Xvnc using that font path ... Could not start Xvnc.
/usr/bin/Xvnc: symbol lookup error: /usr/bin/Xvnc: undefined symbol: pixman_composite_trapezoids
/usr/bin/Xvnc: symbol lookup error: /usr/bin/Xvnc: undefined symbol: pixman_composite_trapezoids

Solution
To resolve the above issue, run the below command in terminal

#yum install pixman pixman-devel libXfont
