xterm: fatal IO error 32 (Broken Pipe) or KillClient on X server "string:0.0"


This error means that xterm(1) has lost its connection to the X server. The 0.0 represents the display device, which is usually the console. This message can appear when a user is running xterm and the X server disappears or the client is shut down. Data loss is possible if applications were killed before saving files.


Try to run the terminal emulator again in a few minutes after the system has rebooted and the window system is running.
