Got it all done. but.... startx problem

Ive had LFS 6.1 installed for a while now. i use the live cd & the auto-installer (nALFS i think. everything went ok, had a couple of problem with certain pkg but i just coompiled & installed those manually & then went back to the installer....
I tryed installing kde, i choose to go with konstruct. Funny thing i got it installed, it would start, with kde default background and nothing else(no kmenu, icon. now that doesnt really matter because i didn't want it in the first place, i use enlightenmnet. but ill probably try again some time soon just to say i did.
Here is the "but...."
i have an intel 865g video card. other than it being hell to have the accelerator workin(which i didn't yet if someone has plz how did you do it). but mainly, root can exec "startx" without a problem. but when a unprivliged user tries.:

sounds like you need to give the user(s) permissions to access x.

That was one of my thought but startx and X permission r fine.
I went through the book and did not see anything i would have missed that would affect this.
i just tested with the vesa driver and it work fine. So i guess it has to do with the i810 driver only. The modules in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/driver permissions r 755.
so im getting a little confuse here
