Description of problem:
Although similar to bug #53447, I believe this is a more correct
solution to a problem involving the perms set by pam for the
component dri, where the NVidia driver is installed. It may or may
not be a bug upstream, but I don't see any critical issues with the
<xconsole> 0600 <dri> 0600 root
<console> 0600 <dri> 0600 root
Which will prevent glx lockouts in cases where non-root users login
at runlevel 3.
However, I am still unclear as to whether <xconsole> will inherit
<console> in cases where users still login using gdm at runlevel 5,
so perhaps the line should be appended rather than changed?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Clean install any version of the NVidia glx driver
2. Log in as non-root at runlevel 3, then startx
3. Attempt to launch any libGL dependant application
Actual Results: Either "permission denied" or hard lock/freeze of
Expected Results: glx successfully activated on current display.
