Xming, startx as root: Server already active for display 0
Running Debian Lenny, using Xming as my remote X client for display 10. Under an normal user I can launch gui apps, like xeyes, firefox, etc. However, I would like to launch a windows manager.
When trying this as root i get:
X: warning; process set to priority -2 instead of requested priority 0
Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 0
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
and start again.
Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keygiving up.
xinit: Interrupted system call (errno 4): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
Is there a way to remotely start a gui? Thank you for you time.
