Gdk-ERROR **: X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown)


This is what I got when I tried to install mozilla 1.6 on my system. I use Slackware 9.1 with 2.4.24 and till now I had nothing similar to this...
Any idea what could be wrong (Definitely it's not mozilla because I installed the same tar.gz file with no errors to a gentoo system.

Sounds like a missing library. Do you have gdkpixbuf and GTK2 installed?

Were you trying to start Moxilla when that happened? Were you running as root? Does doing (as regular user) "xhost +localhost && mozilla" fix it?

Well GTK2 is installed. When i give slocate gdkpixbuf I get only gdkpixbuf.h. Does it mean that the library is installed? (Don't know.)

I tried it as root, and it happened when trying to INSTALL mozilla. Sorry for asking but how do i do this?
("xhost +localhost && mozilla")
