SDL "XDM authorization key matches an existing client!"
I get the following error when I attempt to execute my project which was previously working fine:
"XDM authorization key matches an existing client!Error: Unable to init SDL: Couldn't open X11 display"
I also get the same error when I try to execute a lot of other programs, many of them not my own. It seems that the error is not caused by using SDL_Mixer either, as some pure graphics demos without any audio functionality also give me this message, and when I removed all audio features from my program to try to isolate the issue it still gave that error upon execution.
I tried to recompile the base SDL package as well, but that had no effect that I could notice.
