    question about permissions


    I am attempting to install StarOffice52, and since when you do "make install" it loads a graphical interface, I am getting denied because I am su'ed in as root when it tries to connect to the x server.

    I then tried to do installation with my regular UID, and it tells me I can't execute the binary.

    The weird part is that I connected from work, did a make install from their, and the graphical dialogue popped up right there. I assume because root was not banned from running the x server on my remote workstation.

    I am going to investigate how to allow root to start the server (temporarily), but in leau of the that does anyone have any suggestions.

    Thanks!

    nevermind


    I turned off xdm in /etc/ttys, and it works fine now.
