Unhappy mozilla 1.3 and SuSE 8.1


Hi!
i am trying to install mozilla 1.3 and although i follow the instructions in the readme file, i cannot. I installed the very same mozilla package on a red hat 8.0 system, and everything worked perfectly. Here is what suse tell me:

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


Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0.0

I really like mozilla, so please somebody help

I think this usually happens when you are logged into X as "lado" then try to run an app as root.

Either login to X as root (not reccomended but should be OK for a quick install) or install from a console logged in as root.

It doesn't matter who installed it.If you are running x a user or as root and try to open anything that also uses the xserver as another user that message shows up.Try xhost + as the logged in user an than try mozilla again.
