Description jorge o. castro 2000-09-30 13:09:51 EDT
Small annoyance:

/etc/X11/XF86Config-4 should have the line "Mode 0666" in the DRI section
in order to allow the normal user to use 3D accelaration "out of the box". 

Don't know if this is a bug or intentional,   that's why it's low/low....
Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-10-04 14:22:16 EDT
That would allow anybody on the system to read/write to these devices, which
isn't a good thing securitywise.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2001-03-01 13:39:36 EST
It isn't a security issue anymore, and is fixed in Rawhide.
