A couple of questions...(more like dozens)
First my setup:
I'm using a Macbook, on that I run VMWare Fusion which has both Mepis and my (B)LFS on it.
so far I've completed the lfs book (6.2) and got at far as blfs' (6.3) Chapter 28 Configuring the Core KDE packages and have yet to do the additional packages.
Almost everything works fine but there's just a couple of things I need to correct:
1. I haven't installed any of the software in the BLFS book with a unprivileged user (because the first make command in the book couldn't be done with an unprivileged user). it's obviously a permission thing but I have no idea which one(s) to change.
2. I can't start KDE with an unprivileged user (kwin cannot connect to x server)...same permission thing.
So my question is: Which permissions does an unprivileged user need to run the above things?
3. my screen resolutions default on KDE (when I installed it) was 640x480 so I edited the /etc/X11/xorg.conf (I'm using Xorg-6.9.0 btw) to include my native 1280x800 resolution, it now displays all the following resolutions: 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1152x768, 1280x960, 1280x1024...but not 1280x800.
What exactly do I need to do to include this resolution?
note: My barebones (text-only) LFS system runs at 640x460 also, is there any way to make this 1280x800 too?
3. when I type "shutdown now" it continues to shutdown until it says: "INIT: no more processes left in this runlevel" after which I can't type any thing. my virtual machine doesn't turn off automatically.
my 2nd question: is this normal? should it turn off automatically or is this just the point where I shut it down.
note: if I send a ctrl + alt + delete it switches to runlevel 6, reboots and gives a lot of [ FAIL ] in the process.
Thanks a lot!
