Hi guys,

I have a portable machine, which I also use as a server (a presentation
server). I wanted to run X on it, cause I do like to surf from it once
in a while, but I don't want this "nasty" habit, to put my server at
risk. This made me think of running the X under a vserver - and I've
created an vserver called xsrv.

I've set the inittab to 5 in it, but that didn't start up the X on F7 as
it usually does. I then tried to enter the vserver, and su - klavs and
then run startx.. it complained about me not owning the console (which
is probably right, as I enter the vserver when I was root.

when I run startx as root, it says failed to open /dev/mem (it's a
Warning from xf86ReadBIOS), and fails on xf86OpenConsole: Cannot open
/dev/tty0 (no such file or directory).

Do you have any tips, as how I could get this up and running, as myself
- or can it only be done as root in the vserver? or can't it be done at
