Also I have compiled XFree 4.2.2 and KDE 2.2.2 so I chose to use kdm for startup login. I do login just fine but once I login as a user I cannot su to another user and execute applications that use the X-windows, even if I login as root! There seem to be a misconfiguration with xauth. Anoone experienced enough to give me his advise? I can make everything go well if I execute xhost +localhost before executing the application but I'd like a better solution, if there is one of course!
What do you mean by the standard cron package? The cron created by Paul Vixie perhaps? If so, there is a copy at http://ftp.linuxfromscratch.org/misc/
that's also patched using one of the Debian patches (it's probably not the most up to date one though).
You said su'ing to another user doesn't work. Can you give us more information, such as error messages?
