I'm using Etch with x.org, xdm, and fluxbox. I've discovered that I
can't open an X windows after I log into root using su, as when I try to
open emacs to edit a config file. I have to use 'xhost local:' first.
Not a big deal, but I have to do this everytime I log in. Is there a way
to make this setting stick between sessions?
put it in your shell's startup file, .profile for sh, ksh, bash, zsh; .login for csh tcsh



My apologies if you've seen this already, my newsgroup account is
behaving strangely...
