| I'm trying to access my local X display (on a Gentoo Linux machine,

| Solaris 10U4 on Sparc). I cannot use ssh to login to that machine.

| What did I do?
|
| On the local system, I did:
|
| xauth extract xauth.key $DISPLAY:0.0

Above line should read:

xauth extract xauth.key $DISPLAY

Anyways if your above command is incorrect, then no xauth.key would've
been generated .

| Internet Protocol, Src: 10.0.1.26 (10.0.1.26), Dst: 10.0.3.115 (10.0.3.115)

[snipped]

| X11, Request, Initial connection request
| * * byte-order: 0x42 (Big-endian)
| * * unused
| * * protocol-major-version: 11
| * * protocol-minor-version: 0
| * * authorization-protocol-name-length: 0
| * * authorization-protocol-data-length: 0
| * * unused

Note, in the above request, it hasn't passed your xauth information,
which is possible only in 2 cases, either your $HOME/.Xauthority on
$remote doesn't exist or $XAUTHORITY environment variable points to
a non-existent file.
