Connecting to another X running?


I'm trying to remake an old laptop to some sort of a imageviewer, and I managed to get X running without a login required by running startx in rc3.d/ . However, When I did that I could no longer show images on it with qiv, I used the following commandline:
# qiv --display :0 -x testfile.jpg
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Protocol not supported by server

Gdk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0

I assume it cant find the right display, but why? How can I make it connect to the right display? Xatuh gives me
# xauth list

But I dont seem to get anything out of this either, is there some other way to accomplish the same thing? Maybe another approach?

Best regards,
