     The only errors I see are these :

     So I would correct hostname - what does the command hostname say?

If it looks wrong, then set it to something correct.

Then read man xauth to see what sort of display name it needs. Run 

echo $DISPLAY 

to see what yours is set to.

I would also run

grep -R h2:0 /etc/X11 

to see where the command incorrectly using xauth is. 

It may not be in that directory, so also the
/usr/lib/X11R6 ? directory could be searched too.

Hope this helps
