hi all. i got a problem with the x windows server:
when i launch "startx" it doesn't work because of an error occurred with /dev/io

i've set up everything with xf86config but it still doesn't work

thanks everyone for help

as it doesnt seem to be mentioned in the thread this problem is regularly caused by a too high security level and a quick google for "startx /dev/io" would have revealed this instantly.
