Problems with X and vfat on debian
I just upgraded woody to sid and have a couple problems now:

startx gives this error:

could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo, removing from list
and I can't access my fat32 partitions anymore as a non-root user

anybody some ideas?

thanks, Peter

edit /etc/X11/XF86Config as root and somewhere in there in the font paths you will find the Speedo entrance, remove this line.

Maybe you have to add your user to the disk group do:
adduser foo disk
as root

The X things is solved, more or less, root still cannot startx, even after removing that line in XF86Config, but I don't really need X for root, so that's ok.
The vfat thing is another problem, even when I add my normal users to the group root they cannot access vfat partitions. I tried disk first, but that didn't work so I tried root
