When I use 'nedit' to edit a text, I got an error message since last Friday: "X connection to localhost:13.0 broken (explicit kill or server shut down)"

Is there something wrong with golgi connection? Thanks.

that just means your X client has died ... you just need to start another Xwin32

Looks like this is a BIAC wide problem. I cant open any X windows too and its not a simple starting xwin32 problem. Is golgi's temp directory full again?

sorry you're correct ... however if you ssh -X in from another linux machine you can open X windows.

This was from an earlier post on related problem (if it helps people debug quickly)

"The best guess comes from Jimmy, who noted that the /home partition on golgi was 100% full yesterday, which prevented the creation of some files that ssh uses to authenticate the X11 tunneling. This problem never hit me, but I was just probably lucky."

Its working again now (at least temporarily). Apparently, this problem was present over the weekend too with people having trouble with X connection.
