How Do I Get My X Display Working?

Postby Biscuit » 29. Jul 2013, 17:55

I've got a Solaris 11.1 guest running...

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
gary@frosty:~$ cat /etc/release
Oracle Solaris 11.1 X86

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

... and everything for the most part works OK, but I seem to be unable to open an X display locally. For instance...

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
gary@frosty:~$ export DISPLAY=localhost:0.0
gary@frosty:~$ xhost +
xhost: unable to open display "localhost:0.0"
gary@frosty:~$
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

... and /etc/hosts is defined as...

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
gary@frosty:~$ cat /etc/hosts

127.0.0.1 frosty localhost loghost
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

To preempt what I suspect will be suggested solutions, I've also tried replacing "localhost" with both "127.0.0.1" and "frosty" but hit the same problem.

What gives?
