It's still complaining, with the same error, then?

Are you sure that root owns the XFree86 binary? (the owner is listed in the ls -l output)

Do you have an entry in /etc/hosts for your machine? (I noticed a "hostname lookup failure" earlier, this can cause issues, but probably not this kind of issue) It should look like www.xxx.yyy.zzz hostname aliases, where you replace www.xxx.yyy.zzz with your IP address, and "hostname" and "aliases" with your hostname and aliases. For example, my /etc/hosts looks like:

Quote:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.2.254 beta.localdomain beta
Since my hostname is "beta", and 192.168.2.254 is my IP address. You should also have the 127 (loopback) address in there.
