Securelevel Question

Post by Jean Delane » Wed, 31 Mar 1999 04:00:00


When I try to run the kernel at securelevel 0 or more on FreeBSD
3.1-STABLE I can not run XFree86,

even as root.

The error messages is: xf86OpenConsol: KDENABIO failed (Operation not

Is this normal or is it possible to run XFree86 at anything other than
level -1.

Thank You.
