Description pushf 1999-07-03 14:51:31 UTC
When I am running under X, linuxconf doesn't want to start
properly. I have the following error message:

(root@Fury:~)# linuxconf
Message d'erreur de remadmin :
Message d'erreur de remadmin :Gdk-WARNING **: locale not
supported by C library
Message d'erreur de remadmin :Xlib: connection to ":0.0"
refused by server
Message d'erreur de remadmin :Xlib: Client is not authorized
to connect to Server
Message d'erreur de remadmin :
Message d'erreur de remadmin :Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open
display: :0
remadmin (GUI) sortie anormale
(root@Fury:~)

My X server is XFCom_i740 ( Precision Insight ).

Thank for helping me !!!

If this problem is still occurring for you, please tell me how
you are starting X: using xdm, gdm, or kdm?  startx?  xinit?
Are you logging in as root or are you using su?  If you are
using su, are you using "su" or "su -"?  Thanks.

I also had this problem.  It turned out to be a networking problem.
It appears that the hostname had gotten changed to that given to the
primary interface.  The solution is to make sure that you have the
same name for your hostname and also for your primary interface in the
hosts file.  If your hostname is still localhost.localdomain, but your
primary interface has another name, you will get this problem. Check
your hostname with hostname, and then change it to the other name to
test whether this is the case for you.

sdhill is right -- thanks for pointing out the context.
