Intrigued by OpenOffice, I decided to build it.

It just finished and installed it, but I got the following error:


/usr/X11R6/bin/Xvfb :2 &
/bin/sh -c "cd /usr/pkgsrc/misc/openoffice/work/oo_641_src/config_office/../instsetoo/*.pro/01/normal;           /usr/bin/sed -e 's#@@PREFIX@@#/usr/pkg#g'                       </usr/pkgsrc/misc/openoffice/files/oo_setup.resp                                >oo_setup.resp"
/bin/sh -c "cd /usr/pkgsrc/misc/openoffice/work/oo_641_src/config_office/../instsetoo/*.pro/01/normal;           TEMP=/usr/pkgsrc/misc/openoffice/work; export TEMP;                             DISPLAY=':2'; export DISPLAY;                   ./setup -r:oo_setup.resp"

Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 2
        If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X2-lock
        and start again.

*** Error code 1 (ignored)


Note the "ignored".  Is t his anything that I should worry about?

Also, I hope that the :2 isn't hard-coded.  But I only had a :0, so if a
script picked the first available X display number, it should have been
:1, yes?  If :2 is hard-coded, it's just a matter of time before that
conflicts with someone.  Is there a way to check for available X
display numbers moderately easily?
