re: XF86Config problem serverflags section or xset
Yes, you are right, and I have tried it. Correct on this system will be
'xset s off -display ":0"'
But the problem is that anyway where I put that command to execute , be
in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc or /home/kiosk/.xsession or wherever it does
not work. However, if I log in remote by ssh and execute xset s off
-display ":0" from bash prompt, it works fine.

I've got "xset s off" in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc. Works fine.
According to man xset, the xset command must be executed after all
applications, so I have tried to execute it from the last line of
I had the same problem making kiosks with redhat as well, and ended up
by solving it with the serverflags section in XF86Config.
Continuing exploring the section "serverflags" problem:
From linux single start and the startx I get the error message:
Config Error: /etc/X11/XF86Config:269 (wich is the line where the
first option in the section serverflags starts)

Remark here that it is the Option word that is underlined in the

The Xserver used is xserver-s3
I will be happy for advice for any solution here, being by XF86Config
and serverflags, or how to execute xset s off
