yes, I've checked the other permission resetting treads, and I've tried some stuff.
what i've tried
1) editing the /etc/security/console.perms
a) tried to comment anything with /dev/nvidia* out : didn't work
b) tried setting <console> 0600 <dri> 0600 root.video:didn't work
to 666 instead of the 600
b) setting console to xconsole: didn't work
2) made sure user was in VIDEO group: didn't work
now for my problem (and it's kinda interesting). Everything was fine in 10.0. I did have /dev/nvidia problems at the very very first, but adding USER to VIDEO group fixed it.
I upgrade to 10.1 and throw the newest dropline on it (although I kept the orginal 2.6.10 kernel from the EXTRA on slackware 10.0 ?problem?). I can play doom, I can play enemy territory. I can see what the GL screen saver will look like in the little preview window, but when it comes to actually using the GL screensaver...BAM!!!! ye olde "permissions are too restrictive". I can throw a chmod 666 on /dev/nvidia* and things works great but only until I restart.
Is there a solution for this or are things just
and leave it be?
