PROBLEM: Running X-11 as a normal user (not root)

PROBLEM: Running X-11 as a normal user (not root)

Post by Wolfgang Zilge » Wed, 05 May 1993 20:28:35

this is a session protocol if I start X-11 as a normal user:
(if I login as superuser I get no problem)

Setting TCP SO_LINGER: Protocol not available
X386 Version 1.2 / X Windows System [linux v1.1 8514/A alpha]
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 5000)


Fatal server error:
Cannot obtain required I/O privilege level

giving up.
xinit:  Invalid argument (errno 22):  unable to connect to X server
xinit:  No such process (errno 3):  Server error.

I hope someone can help me to change the privileges correctly
