problem wiht wget


im trying to install evolution, and when i do

wget -q -O - http://go.ximian.com |sh

as root, like it says in the evo webpage, i get this error

==> Autodetecting system type...
==> Checking $DISPLAY and X permissions...

The Ximian Desktop Installer is a graphical application, and
either you have no DISPLAY variable set or the root user does not
have permission to access your X server. Run 'xhost +localhost'
before becoming root, and make sure that the DISPLAY variable is
set correctly before running the go-ximian script.

Cleaning up temporary files... done.


my $DISPLAY=':0.0' and i tried running xhost +localhost with no success...

Sorry ran out of Ideas. I don't use it myself, after the download do you have a readme or anything? Looked at their site but it doesn't seem to help any.
