    Linuxconf is evil. :P

    Guaranteed to fix it.
    rpm -e linuxconf

    Try here instead if you need a GUI config tool for something Red Hat does not yet provide.

    You can try running xhost +localhost as root. If that doesn't work,try xhost +
    Unfortunately the latter opens up a hole as your x-server will be open to the world. If you're behind a lan, that might be acceptable, if not - be sure and cover it with your firewall.
