RH 8.0 Xvfb connection refused problem.

Hi, can anyone else confirm if this is a RH 8.0 problem ?

running the following

"Xvfb :1 -screen 0 1280x1024x8 &"

and then

"DISPLAY=:1 xdpyinfo"

gives the following error,

AUDIT: Thu Oct 31 16:09:55 2002: 1631 Xvfb: client 1 rejected from local host
Xlib: connection to ":1.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

xdpyinfo: unable to open display ":1".

It works OK in previous releases of RH.

(you can put it at the end of /etc/rc.d/rc.local

Xvfb :29 -auth /etc/X29.hosts -screen 0 1280x1024x8
