I am running FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE.
1. Whenever I start X, I see the information shown in the following file -
This, while I actually have installed v4.3 from the ports. Is it that some
files are still lurking somewhere or what?? Why does it not show 4.3.x
2. After I upgraded to ver 4.3.x some applications which used to display
using remote X to the remote box stopped working and give an error like:
Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: 220.127.116.11:0.0
(well, that is the real IP).
wash at ns2 ('tty') ~ 3 -> echo $DISPLAY
wash at ns2 ('tty') ~ 2 -> xcalc
Error: Can't open display: 18.104.22.168:0.0
I am wondering what I'm missing.
