OK, I know this is a newbie type question. But...I've search the net
(web and news), searched the mailing list archives, and I have yet
to find a "good" answer to this. So...I'm hoping someone knows
what causes this, and what I can do to mitigate.
Up until today, I have been able to "startx" on my RH6.2 box using
my user account no prob. So...I was updating mysql, recompiling,
and everythings looking OK. I reboot. I re log in. I type "startx" and
Authentication failed - cannot start X server.
Perhaps you do not have console
ownership?_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno =
xinit: Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
Now, WTF happened? I messed with some file perms in /var but
changed them back thinking that maybe something there caused
this to happen.
Right now, I can only do startx as root. Not funny :)
Confused, and needs some help/direction.
