I've never set up renderd but are you trying to bind as a regular user to a port only root can bind to? (nevermind, it's an UNIX domain socket). And please don't post screenshots if you have text error messages, otherwise it makes it harder for other users to search for the same problem.

Make sure the directory /var/rund/renderd actually exists and is writable for the user you are running renderd under.
