X-window problem with SAPGUI



I'm trying to configure the SAP GUI correctly. I have it installed at /opt/SAPClients on Fedora 4. I can login as root (/opt/SAPClients/SAPGUI6.40rev4/bin/guilogon) and it starts just fine-- but then under Add New Connection, only (none) is displayed in the System dropdown box. How do I get it to recognize the system? I started the other stuff fine using sapstart nw4host.

When I su to nw4adm or kevin (a local account), the GUI will not even start, and I get the following error:

Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server

Xlib: No protocol specified

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.InternalError: Can't connect to X11 window server using ':0.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.

I think this is a conflict in X-windows-- does anyone know how to resolve this?
