i am running Fedora 5 with twm (simple windows manager)
i log in as a root
i am able to start X but when i try to run some graphical programs (say, myprog) i get:
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified
myprog: unable to open display ":0.0"
when i run xhost +localhost
i get the same error message
when i run:
xauth -f /root/.Xauthority extract -$DISPLAY | xauth merge -
xauth: error in locking authority file /root/.Xauthority
xauth (argv):1: unable to read any entries from file
where do i go from here?
