no Display number available (X:-) 10 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0
I have 2 unix machines running goglobal server, both are Solaris 8 machines.

After connecting to one on windows and double-clicking on any of the apps in the client window I get a message "no Display number available ( X:- )

has anyone seen this before? any hints or advice will be appreciated.

thanks,

Generally speaking this shouldn't happen -- it means gold was unable to find a display between :1 and :2500.

The most likely problem is that the ${GOGLOBAL_ROOT}/run/ directory needs to be world-writable (we suggest 1777 permissions). This directory is used to create a lock file when a new display is allocated. If the lock file cannot be created, you will get the error you are seeing.
