X server insecure with XF ?

Post by LiveWi » Fri, 02 Jun 1995 04:00:00

Dear XF user,

When I start xftutorial; I get this error

X server insecure (must use xauth-style authorization); command ignored
while executing
"send $tutInterpreter {proc XFTUTEval {cmd interp} {eval $cmd; send $interp TUTUnblock}}"
(file "/usr/local/lib/xf2.3/xftutorial/xftutorial.tcl" line 447)
invoked from within
"source /usr/local/lib/xf2.3/xftutorial/xftutorial.tcl"

Do you know why? and how to fix it?
I am running slackware kernel 1.2.1




1. XF 3.1 vs XF 3.1.1 Server for S3 chips...

I have an Orchid 1280+/VLB board which works fine using the 3.1 server.

However, I never could 'update' to 3.1.1 because I couldn't get the server
to work correctly.  With the old XF86Config file, the monitor would switch
frequency but hang the machine and go completely to black.

After installing Caldera (which uses 3.1.1) I replace *both* xinit
and XF86_S3 with those from 3.1 and it works fine.  I had to replace
both because just replacing the server gave the same hangin' response.

What changed in the server which would cause this problem?  I shouldn't
think that a minor-minor version change (bug fix release) would cause
such problems.

Any suggestions.
