why does simple "xhost +" not open up the display?
it's been a while since i've tried this, so i may be overlooking
centos 5.5 <-- (local wireless LAN) --> ubuntu pre-maverick
i just want to demo how to display a graphical client on another
system so i tried what used to work just fine.
on my ubuntu system, i edited /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc and made the
# exec /usr/bin/X -nolisten tcp "$@"
exec /usr/bin/X "$@"
restarted X (actually rebooted), logged in, and ran "xhost +".
(also checked the firewalls on both systems, both appear to be wide
and yet, on the centos system:
$ DISPLAY=192.168.1.2:0 xeyes (that's the ubuntu box, of course)
Error: Can't open display: 192.168.1.2:0
i recall (admittedly from some time back) that this used to work
just fine. so what's changed? where would i find the log file or
security message explaining what's happening? thanks.
