All of sudden, $DISPLAY is not set

Hi, I upgraded from F32 to F33 recently. I’m not sure of the exact timing, but $DISPLAY is now :0

localhost is gone from the $DISPLAY value, this breaks x-forwarding.

Any ideas guys? Thank you.

When you say it breaks x-forwarding, please explain exactly what breaks. I can ssh into my laptop, desktop, whatever using the -X option and run a gui app on the remote system. My localhost has $DISPLAY configured as :1 as seen from the gnome terminal window.

$DISPLAY has never in my experience ever had localhost as part of the value. It contains the value of the gui desktop display.

I’m really sorry. Somebody (I’m looking at you Robert) broke one of my servers. I had no idea he was changing it. Problem did not have to do with $DISPLAY although if you ssh with X forwarding the host name does indeed show up in $DISPLAY when the sshd_config is how I set it up :smiley:
