Description bjhanneg 1999-06-22 18:44:49 UTC
It appears that an application is attempting to access the X
server before it is started, or that the permissions set by
the XFree86- rpm may be incorrect. Reinstalling
XFree86- is a workaround for this.

There are no error messages prior to the message below (this
is a complete dump)

_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 111
waiting for X server to begin accepting connections

XFree86 Version / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6300)
Release Date: January 4 1999
	If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is
	than the above date, look for a newer version before
	problems.  (see http://www.XFree86.Org/FAQ)

Comment 1 Derek Tattersall 1999-06-29 15:39:59 UTC
Are you attempting to start X via xdm/gdm? Or by "startx" from the
command line?

Comment 2 Preston Brown 1999-07-15 20:51:59 UTC
So you are saying that X doesn't start at all, or just that it starts
but is giving you this error message?  The error message is a
side-effect from a race-condition work-around fix, and can be safely
ignored.  But if X isn't starting at all, that is indicative of some
other problem that we need to fix.

Comment 3 Preston Brown 1999-08-31 21:05:59 UTC
closed due to lack of feedback.  Works fine here.

Comment 4 sharifi 1999-10-14 16:43:59 UTC
I have problem the same problem. I use XFree86-3.3.5-3 but I can not
use X server. I try redhat 6.0 and 6.1 but I have the same problem.
After installing redhat I use Xconfigurator and when it creates
XF86Config file for me I edit it to delete the Modeline that are not
compatible with my monitor then I entre startx command. The screen
appears but after few seconds when it try to load some thing related
to gnome my screen becomes white or black, my computer becomes blocked
and force to reboot my computer.
