Xwindows problems

Hi all,
I'm running an Xserver that supports my Matrox AGP card, and it runs fine
if I run it as root, but when I run it a normal user, I get this message:

Fatal server error:
xf86OpenConsole: Server must be running with root permissions
You should be using Xwrapper to start the server or xdm.
We strongly advise against making the server SUID root!

I seem to recall this problem being mentioned before, but I don't
remember how to solve it.  any ideas?


UNIX _IS_ user friendly, it's just picky about who its friends are.
