Description Roy-Magne Mo 2001-12-02 01:03:48 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.6) Gecko/20011121

Description of problem:
There are no Xwrapper in XFree86-4.1.99.2-0.1.6
, and suid-bit is not set on the X-server. So I can't start this as a
regular user.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start or just X as an ordinary user
2.
3.
	

Actual Results:  it told me that it was logging in /var/log/XFree86.0.log,
but wasn't so I suspected permission problems.

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2001-12-02 07:48:34 EST
Thanks.  I need to decide wether to SUID the main binary or put
Xwrapper back.  With 4.x there is no need for Xwrapper to exist
as the functionality has been folded into the main Xserver binary
now.

I'll have to think about this one.  I'll probably SUID it though.

Fixed in my internal build.  When 4.1.99.x gets into official rawhide
this will show up.

Thanks.
