sixpack on suse 9.1 help


I am trying to install sixpack (version 2.1-2 noarch.rpm) on suse 9.1. I have all the dependencies but when I run it I get the following promt:

Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

I have perl 5.8.3 and it seems that the sixpack binary I got was compiled agains perl 5.8.0, could that be the problem, has any body access to an other source of sixpack for suse 9.1?
Well thank you all!!!

you're probably trying to run the program as root, under an X server not owned by root. either run "xhost +localhost" as your noraml user, to let other UID's connect to the box, or don't run it as root (hugely preferable if possible)

easy ... Alt F2 to bring up the "Run Command" dialog or whateva its called under KDE .. there you can enter it ... & it will use the current xserver .. and not moan .. there will be something of the same under GNOME ..... reg KDE .. U can change the priority or run in terminal .. or another user .. very useful .. :-)
