thread.error: can't start new thread
its like if i do anything on the server i get that error.....
Seems like I jumped to the conclusion that the guide was for a LAMP config and not the Gnome/VNC route -- The guy caught me on MSN and the issue is a lack of RAM due to X Windows/Gnome/VNC requiring so much.

See the failcnt there. Python cannot allocate more memory to fork a new thread (you only have 64MB "burstable" memory there) and spit the dummy.
While many in hosting loves CentOS, the very fact that yum is written in Python, which has much more memory overhead than say apt-get in Debian, it is not preferred for low end VPS that only 64MB of burstable memory. Give Debian/Ubuntu a try.
