Huh, I guess I never tried it as root, but I hit the same error message
when trying to run conserver (8.1.14) when compiled --with-uds. I ended
up compiling without uds support since I don't use it.

One important note is that the "--with-uds" configure option is *not* used to enable the UNIX domain socket support for consoles (in particular, for use with VMWare Server, GSX, etc.). The "--with-uds" option is to use UNIX domain sockets between the "console" client and the "conserver" server. Here's the excerpt from "configure --help":

                          Use Unix domain sockets for client/server
                          communication [/tmp/conserver]
