I got to the root user through the GUI login. That's why I'm so baffled.

If you got to root-user-in-kde by typing "su" at the console and then startx, next time try "sux" instead of su, that should set up your display right. Otherwise that is truly bizzare... are you using KDM of console+startx to get into KDE as root?

I opened the Konsoles from root user at the console by selecting the Konsole icon on the taskbar at the bottom of the screen. NCD is a brand of X-Terminals that I have been using for some time now; I don't think they can be the problem. I hadn't thought of the $DISPLAY variable, but a new KDE2 session should have the correct $DISPLAY right? I've also had problems starting concurrent KDE2 sessions for the same user on different terminals.

I am running SuSE 7.1. Today I had a user session on an NCD X-Term. I brought up a root session on the console. I tried to open Konsole a few times and it seemed to fail. When I went back to my NCD terminal, the Konsoles were opened on that terminal. I did have one su Konsole on the NCD before doing this.

Any thoughts?

It's got something to do with your $DISPLAY value. Exactly how did you "try to open Konsole"? Also I have no idea what NCD is so I cna't exactly answer that bu either way, your konsole was getting launched to the display value that was set on your NCD
