Description Bastien Nocera 2004-09-27 17:57:34 UTC
$ echo $DISPLAY
$ pxeos
pxeos - Python pxeos commandline tool

Usage: pxeos [-a|-m|-d|-l] [-h] [-i <description> ] [-p <protocol> ]
[-D<1|0>] [-s <server>] [-L <location>] [-A <1|0>] [-u <user>] [-P
<password>] name
$ unset DISPLAY
$ pxeos
Unable to initialize graphical environment. Most likely cause of failure
is that the tool was not run using a graphical environment. Please either
start your graphical user interface or set your DISPLAY variable.
Caught exception: could not open display
