I apologize for the delay in getting back to you all on this, my
day job has been overwhelming lately.
I tried your suggestion with the following result:
nonroot$ sudo su -
myrootprompt# export DISPLAY=:0
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key
I did some digging on this error in google and I found a response
suggesting the error stems from trying to run something in an x-
session that is owned by another user.
I opened a root-shell directly and ran zenmap again
With the result that it opened normally.
Can anyone tell me why I am seeing this behavior? Why does zenmap
segmentation fault out if I open a normal shell and run: sudo
zenmap but if I open a root shell, it launches fine. This seems odd
it is odd :) It is definitely a bug. Maybe the GSoCers will get
around to fixing that.
