Slackware64 multilib and ettercap

I have a Slackware64 multilib:

ls /var/log/packages/ | grep glibc
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 540261 Dec 12 11:43 glibc-2.11.1_multilib-x86_64-5alien_slack13.1

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   2458 Dec 12 11:43 gcc-objc-4.4.4_multilib-x86_64-1alien
I have installed Ettercap and Libnet from but starting the program as root I get:
ettercap -G
ettercap NG-0.7.3 copyright 2001-2004 ALoR & NaGA

Dissector "dns" not supported (etter.conf line 70)
Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key
GTK+ failed to initialize. Is X running?
As user works.

for the dns error, you can try this patch (topic on it is here).

if you want to launch the app as root in a X session started as user you need to give him access to your display, so issue (as user, in your X session)
xhost +localhost
check your root DISPLAY variable
set | grep DISPLAY
