More xorg problems

It seems that there are a varity of xorg problems being reported with
the new testing upgrades.  I am _not_ having the same problems as
others so thought I would report them here.

1.  startx, as root, works as it should
2.  startx as any other user:
    When I first tried I kept getting this error message:
    "Fatal server error:
    Cannot move old log file ("/var/log/Xorg.0.log" to

    It seemed the permissions were wrong, so as a test only, I changed
    them to allow me to r/w log files.  That allowed me to get further
    but them get this error:

        Before reporting problems, check http://wiki.x.org
        to make sure that you have the latest version.

Fatal server error:
xf86EnableIOPorts: failed to set IOPL for I/O (Operation not permitted)

XIO:  fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
      after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

I have not been able to find any lead to this problem.  I installed from
a dist-upgrade (254 packages) so _should_ have everything required, I hope.

I have followed the suggestions mentioned in the >http://wiki.x.org>
except for the part about _startkde_.  The link mentioned
"/usr/lib/X11/xinit/xinitrc" doesn't exixt on my system but is instead
"/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc" which is ifrom the xbase-clients package.

Any and all suggestions welcome.


Linux represents a best-of-breed UNIX, that is trusted in mission
critical applications, and - due to it's open source code - has a long
term credibility which exceeds many other competitive OS's.
