Question KDE: error when starting Konsole


If I start the Konsole in KDE, I get this message:

> Fatal server error:
> Server is already active for display 0
> If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock > and start again.

> When reporting a problem related to a server crash,
> please send the full server output, not just the last
> messages. Please report problems to
> xfree86@xfree86.org.

(15 seconds of waiting)

> compaq@compaq_hda3:~$

and from that moment on, the Konsole seems to work normally.

If I start KDE as root, I don't get this message

Any idea, what's going on and what I must do to prevent this error message and these 15 seconds of waiting?

Hmmm.

First I login as a normal user, then I say startx to start KDE, and then I open Konsole to log in again. The some1 is the same me!
What must I do to get rid of this error message?

No. I didn't logout.
I find Konsole to be more convenient to work with than the plain text console like tty1, because I can have more things on my screen in the same time.
But how to get rid of the error message. It doesn't come when I initially log in as root.

Have you tried to remove /tmp/.X0-lock that's referred in the message?

You could...

Or if you notice the error message again, go and check it out...remove and try again I suppose.

I wish I could help more, but I use Eterm
