Subject [issues] Resolved: (FOR-74) Building: Can't connect to Xinetd
Date Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT

   The following issue has been resolved as WON'T FIX.

   Resolver: Jeff Turner

It's more a Java problem than anything related to Forrest. Java utilizes the rendering system
of the host operating system for graphics stuff.  On unix, this is usually an X server.  If
you don't have an X server, you need to either:
 - have JDK 1.4 with built-in "headless" operation
 - Download and use a rendering library like PJA (
 - Install an X substitute like Xvfb, and set DISPLAY=:1
