Problems setting xhosts...
I am having a strange problem that I do not not how to solve. I usually run X
as a normal user and I open one xterm as root (with su) to do the fancy stuff.
>From the normal user, I do 'xhost localhost' and then run ethereal in the root
window. Up to here, everything works fine, ethereal opens and I am able to
start capturing packets, but then, if I stop capturing and try to start again,
with ethereal still open, it dies and the root window complains about not
being able to access the display... I have to type again in the user window
'xhost localhost' to be able to restart ethereal!!!
Is there any kind of timer on xhost? How do I add permanently the root user in
my machine so that everything I run in the root window has rights to access
Any help or ideas are greatly welcomed!!
Thanks in advance!
