I have Macports gramps working (it took me 7.5 hours...) and this is what it says on startup:
> gramps
Xlib:  extension "Generic Event Extension" missing on display "/tmp/launch-L3ke0M/:0".
Xlib:  extension "RANDR" missing on display "/tmp/launch-L3ke0M/:0".
Xlib:  extension "Generic Event Extension" missing on display "/tmp/launch-L3ke0M/:0".
Xlib:  extension "Generic Event Extension" missing on display "/tmp/launch-L3ke0M/:0".
Xlib:  extension "Generic Event Extension" missing on display "/tmp/launch-L3ke0M/:0".
5860: WARNING: Spell.py: line 58: Spelling checker is not installed

and that eventually all works fine. So it looks as though RANDR missing is OK, but the rest is the trouble.

There was a Mac update this month which updated the X11 implementation. Mine is now XQuartz 2.1.6 (xorg-server 1.4.2-apple33) running on OS X 10.5.7. This update did change some of the bugs associated with gramps's display handling.

I just installed gramps via Macport. I did all 9 library
dependencies first (hours and hours...). When I run gramps
X11 fires up but no gramps. The console says (./run.sh):

Xlib:  extension "RANDR" missing on display "/tmp/launch-RbP4aj/:0".
Dynamic session lookup supported but failed: launchd did not provide a
socket path, verify that org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist is loaded!
GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible
causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you
have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See
http://projects.gnome.org/gconf/ for information. (Details -  1: Failed
to get connection to session: Not enough memory)
Dynamic session lookup supported but failed: launchd did not provide a
socket path, verify that org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist is loaded!

Any ideas?

(I have gimp running and it fires up X11 just fine and works).

Thanks!
