y2controlcenter: cannot connect to X server
Posted 16 October 2004 - 01:32 AM
telnet from a SLES9 (A) machine to SLES9 (B)
su to root
When I try to bring up yast2 I get the error
y2controlcenter:cannot connect to X server..
This behavior is observed only on SLES 9 machine..I can bring up yast2 fine using Solaris or other SUSE linux and also RED HAT..
Appreciate any help towards this issue.

type "xhost localhost" in a terminal window (without the quotes). This will grants the local
system rights to the X sessions.
Does this work?
If so, edit your .profile file in your home directory and add it. Then you will not have to enter it each time you are prompted.

"xhost + A" on host A. Note that you must specifically permit any user on
your host to make requests of your user's X server. Otherwise, the default
is to deny all except requests made by X clients initiated by you.
when logged in to host B, and you want the X client on host B to create
a window on host A, then you'll need to permit B to do so with "xhost + B"
on host A.
it's all a consequence of the new X server permission security-mindedness.
