Error while trying to start a program on a local X session.

Hi all!

I'm running MythTV (frontend) on my Mandrake 10.1 box.

I'd like to have a script that launches another X session, with the configfile that makes my TV-out work. This should be at :4 or something.

Now, when I try the following:
X :4 -config
it gives my just an X session, with no GUI whatsoever.

If I type this then:
export DISPLAY=
This gives the following error messages when I try to start ANYTHING at display :4

AUDIT: Fri Jan 28 20:35:45 2005: 5695 X: client 1 rejected from IP
Xlib: connection to "" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified
I tried "xhost +", but to no avail.

Can anyone help me? I've been trying for days now...

Thanks in advance,
