gentoo, installing, xservers and a little crossover question


I have a relatively new gentoo install. It's possible (probable?) that I haven't got stuff quite setup properly.

I'm trying to install the crossover office that I've just re-downloaded.

So when I try this is what happens.

Code:
bash-2.05b# sh install-crossover-standard-3.0.1.sh
Verifying archive integrity...OK
Uncompressing CrossOver Office Standard..................................

Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified


Setup requires an X display to run.  There is a display variable set, however
you have no permissions to access the X server (:0.0) it points to.
Try running xhost +localhost before su'ing to root.

bash-2.05b#
Well as I'm in a GUI, how can I not have an X server running ? Or is there a setting of some sort that I haven't got "set" ???

What would I need to check ???

regards

John

Hum? I thought that was gonna work this time. Bugger.

I tried the xhost +localhost before but it didn't want to play, so why it seemed to work, I don't follow.

Then when it refuses to play as root and I su back to my user account and it starts, but then gives the error?

I don't recognise that error ? Could it be that my gentoo install, something isn't set up correctly to allow me to run executables ??

regards

John
