XFree86 3.3.6 reporting 'authentication failed' cannot start x server'

XFree86 3.3.6 reporting 'authentication failed' cannot start x server'

Post by Anders Hansse » Sun, 30 Jan 2000 04:00:00



hi!

i compiled xfree86-3.3.6 from ports on a 3.4-stable box. when i try to run
startx, i get this message:

Authentication failed - cannot start X server.
Perhaps you do not have console ownership?
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: cant connect: errno = 2

Xwrapper: no modules loaded for 'xserver' service

can anyone give me a hint about what to do?

thanks in advance!

Update your /etc/pam.conf, there are new entries concerning
the Xserver.

1. samba: 'net view \\server' works, 'net view' fails

From my WinXP client (using cygwin), I can browse the shares on a samba
server whose name I know.  But when I try to browse the whole network, I
get a logon failure and the smbd logs show that it's not seeing my
username.

Browsing shares on \\server, from a different machine \\client (using
cygwin) while logged in as testuser:

$ net view '\\server'
Shared resources at \\server

Share name              Type   Used as  Comment
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
test                    Disk            
The command completed successfully.

But when I try to browse the whole network, I get a logon failure:

$ net view
System error 1326 has occurred.

Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.

This is an authentication problem.  When I issue 'net view \\server' on the
client, the smbd log shows

[2003/11/02 06:55:03, 3] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(216)
  check_ntlm_password:  Checking password for unmapped user [CLIENT

[2003/11/02 06:55:03, 3] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(219)

But when I issue just 'net view', the smbd log instead shows

[2003/11/02 06:55:32, 3] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(216)

with the new password interface
[2003/11/02 06:55:32, 3] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(219)

So for some reason the 'net view \\server' request is processing my user
name, but 'net view' isn't.

Any ideas what could cause this?
Thanks,
Andrew.
