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
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:
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.
