xorg problems... got an odd error


Well I just finished compiling my new kernel and I boot into it no problems. Then I go and reinstall the nvidia driver and adjust xorg.conf from the nv driver to the nvidia driver and added in the nologo option along with renderaccel and the nvagp option. I save and exit. Type in startx and it went to the blank screen like it normally does before loading KDE and then it dropped back to console with this error message:

_XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for inet6
_XSERVTransOpen: Transport open failed for inet6/baud:0
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to open listener for inet6

Release Date: 18 December 2003
XProtocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 6.7
Build Operating System: Linux 2.4.26 i686 [ELF]
Current Operating System: Linux baud 2.6.7 #1 Mon Aug 2 08:08:15 UTC 2004 i686
Build Date: 05 June 2004

Please consult the X.org Foundation support
at http://wiki.X.org
for help
Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information

XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining



the log said pretty much the same thing except it had a lot more useless text to me. Anyone wtf went wrong? I'm not using agpgart or anything..... Please help because I have no clue what went wrong. I haven't tried it yet with just the nv driver to see if it is working in 2.6.7 but I know right now it is working fine back on 2.4.26 with the nv driver.



Also a smaller question of lesser importance: In the xorg.conf file in the video card section there are 2 Driver "driverhere" entries. Just curious if I should comment out the top one because it is a different driver. Anyways heres what it looks like:

Driver "vga"
# The BusID line is used to specify which of possibly multiple devices
# this section is intended for. When this line isn't present, a device
# section can only match up with the primary video device. For PCI
# devices a line like the following could be used. This line should not
# normally be included unless there is more than one video device
# intalled.

# BusID "PCI:0:10:0"

# VideoRam 256

# Clocks 25.2 28.3

EndSection

# Device configured by xf86config:

Section "Device"
Identifier "** NVIDIA (generic) [nv]"
Driver "nv"


Also if anyone wants to see the log file just ask and I'll post it but I figured there is enough text in this post as is.

odd, this is the 2nd such problem I've seen tonight!!

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=212190

Code:
_XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for inet6
_XSERVTransOpen: Transport open failed for inet6/baud:0
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to open listener for inet6
I knew there was something I did not like about X.org

Well I don't quite know how but I fixed it. I slowly one by one added stuff like nv to nvidia driver and all the options and now it runs fine. huh that's wierd.

Thanks for the responses guys

Xorg provides IP v6 support, so the errors :

_XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for inet6
_XSERVTransOpen: Transport open failed for inet6/baud:0
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to open listener for inet6

can be fixed by compiling kernel with IP v6 features.

I'm getting this error too. I just installed Slack 10 and this is the first I've seen this error in any distro. Is the correct fix recompiling the kernel?

I had the same issue. It seems that the xserver is requesting a ipv6 connection. Which IMHO is silly. Solution is to either build support for it into the kernel or add this to the command line --nolisten tcp.

The IPv6 lines are just a harmless error. I wouldn't worry about it whatsoever.. It just means that xorg was compiled with IPv6 support when most people don't need it.
