I recently installed Fedora 9 onto an old computer of mine. I was trying to setup the network using system-config-network but each time, after I enter in root password I get the following error message:
No protocol specified
ERROR: Unable to initialize graphical environment. Most likely cause of failure is that the tool was not run using a graphical environment. Please either start your graphical user interface or set your DISPLAY variable.
I get the same message when I run ANY of the system- or gnome- commands, even from the GNOME desktop. Yes, I have a desktop environment loaded, despite the error message.
I have looked through various forums and the only thing I could find, without modifying python scripts (which was an answer to another issue) was to "export DISPLAY=:0". Which I did, without any luck. The error was not changed.
Checking out Xorg.log.0 (another suggestion without a final resolution) I get an error repeatedly saying:
AUDIT: Mon Jul 14 21:11:32 2008: 2025 Xorg: client 32 rejected from local host ( uid=0 gid=0 pid=30769 )
I am really not sure why I am getting this error. Any suggestions?
