Description Cristian Gafton 1999-04-07 11:57:15 EDT
Very simple, I logged in as 'davem' and tried to run
X which failed because of problem #4.  So I ran "su"
to become root and start it by hand.  It printed out
"starting xfs: " message but the colored "OK" on the right
side never happened, in fact it just printed a newline and
gave me my root shell prompt back.

Logging in on another VC freshly as root allowed it to
work.
