Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 432439
Problems with DISPLAY variable
Last modified: 2008-12-03 05:06:35 EST
Description of problem:
I'm using vnc to connect to a CentOS 5.1 system. So basically RedHat Enterprise
When I do that, the display variable is set to "localhost.localdomain:1.0".
If it is like that, I cannot open the Service Configuration Tool.
My workaround is that I reset the display variable to ":1.0" in the
DISPLAY=`echo $DISPLAY | grep -o :.*`
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Set DISPLAY variable to "localhost.localdomain:0.0" and run command in shell
Steps to Reproduce:
2. export DISPLAY
Window doesn't appear
Is system-config-services the only tool with this issue? Please check, whether
e.g. system-config-date and system-config-network exhibit the same problem or not.
