Ksnuffle startup error- Xlib: extension "RENDER" missing on display ":0.0".

I have installed a Ksnuffle Mandrake rpm, and I am having a segfault problem
when I try to run it.  When I start the applicatin from a shell window the
following information results

/home/files ksnuffle &
[1] 3233
/home/files KSnuffle: domain is [mynet.com]
ksnuffle: nsl child 3234
Xlib:  extension "RENDER" missing on display ":0.0".
KCrash: crashing.... crashRecursionCounter = 2
KCrash: Application Name = ksnuffle path = <unknown>
Xlib:  extension "RENDER" missing on display ":0.0".
ksnuffle NSL exits: No such file or directory

The online manual at the Ksnuffle web site (or the installed documentation
/usr/share/doc/HTM/en/Ksnuffle/* ) do not provide any information.

I have tried exporting several shell environment variables such as
export RENDER=/usr/bin/ksnuffle:0.0    without success.

The man pages say that Xlib deals with Perl constants
/home/files man -k Xlib
Tk::X                (3)  - Perl extension for Xlib constants

Also I can successfully use tcpdump from the shell, giving raw network and protocal
information (Ksnuffle apparently uses tcpdump output).

Linux Mandrake 8.0 (with 2.4.3-20mdk kernel) is installed, with KDE updated
to v2.1.2, and the lateset Mandrake updates.

I believe that I am close to get this application working and I appreciate the
replies to the posting that I made to this group several days ago. I believe that
all the libc libraries are installed now.  A little more help from someone who
has this application working would be appreciated.

Thanks very much
