Running XFree86 as a user

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I just installed FreeBSD 4.6 (from CD distribution set) and used the built-in installer to install XFree86 version After fighting with the configuration options for my video card, I got it working if I invoke startx from the root. However, the only way I could find to run startx from a user account was to change the SUID bit on the file /usr/X11R6/bin/XFree86. Is this the best way to do this? Am I opening myself up to some security problem? I am relatively new to unix, is the normal stuff that any software installation involves?
