User unables to start X window


Hi folks,

BLFS 6.1
FC3 Host

I have been trying for sometimes without a solution to start X-window as User. As Root there is no prblem.

After login as User
$ echo $HOME

/home/User

$ startx
hanging on screen displaying following line repeatedly
Xauth: timeout in locking authority file /home/User/.Xauthority
....

.Xauthority is only an empty file.

Any advice. TIA

B.R.

Hi satinet,

Tks for your URLs

# /sbin/fuser -av /mnt/lfs/home/satimis/.Xauthority
Code:
                     USER        PID ACCESS COMMAND
/mnt/lfs/home/satimis/.Xauthority
Quote:

# find /mnt/lfs/ -name dcopserver
# find /mnt/lfs/ -name dcop*
Both no printout

B.R.
