Bad Display Name balh.blah.blah.com in remove command


Hello, I am having a bit of trouble getting X up and running on FreeBSD. Every time i try and start X I get "Bad Display Name balh.blah.blah.com in remove command". If anyone could shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated!!

Have you added your hostname alias to /etc/hosts?

Something like this:
Code:
::1                     timmeh  timmeh.nsw.bigpond.net.au
127.0.0.1               timmeh  timmeh.nsw.bigpond.net.au
