2. Type "gedit /etc/fstab" (for example)

Comment 1 Peyre Lumpkin 2004-10-09 18:47:54 EDT
The exact text of the error in the terminal window is:

[root@username]# gedit /etc/fstab
(gedit:7296): GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager:
Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols
specified are supported and host-based authentication failed.
(gedit:7296): GdkPixbuf-CRITICAL **: file gdk-pixbuf-io.c: line 769
(gdk_pixbuf_new_from_file): assertion `filename != NULL' failed

This second message is repeated 21 times in the terminal window. (the
exact message verbatim)
