Stefan Dirsch reported to the freedesktop.org bugzilla an issue with
permissions within the DRM code.

See this url for more information, including a patch.

This issue should also affect FC2.
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2004-11-10 15:37:10 EST
The DRM is part of the kernel, however the DRM source code is in
both the kernel and X sources.  We should patch it in both places,
but the pressing issue is a kernel security issue rather than an
X issue.  Once the kernel is patched, please pass the final patch
back to the X team so we can ensure the patch gets integrated into
the upstream X.Org CVS also for people who do actually build DRM
from the X sources.
