it’s been a while since my last post …
here just a short solution of a problem i had with some debian boxes:
emacs /etc/inetd.conf Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keyemacs: Cannot connect to X server :0.0. Check the DISPLAY environment variable or use `-d'. Also use the `xhost' program to verify that it is set to permit connections from your machine.
cb0@localhost:~$ su - root@localhost:~# xauth merge ~cb0/.Xauthority #replace cb0 with your username root@localhost:~# export DISPLAY=:0.0 #now you are able to open emacs root@localhost:~# emacs .bashrc
