Hello list,

I followed the previous thread on X11 with attention as I'm trying the same
thing: I'd like my host to remain as small as possible while providing users
with an X11 interface.

I started with adding CAP_SYS_RAWIO in the bcapabilities file and copying
/dev/tty0, /dev/tty7 and /dev/tty10 to the vserver. Then, startx would fail
with lack of /dev/mem, so I added it too. Then the mouse was missing, so I
put /dev/psaux. I'm not sure this is the right way to go but the setup

The nVidia video card (GeForce 6200) failed to load so I changed the server
to VESA and it worked fine.

My question is triple:

1. is there a better way to run an X11 in a vserver?
2. how comes the nvidia module, loaded in the host, doesn't show up in the
3. what is the clean way to login to this host from the console?

For (1.) I guess the /dev/mem can be a problem.
For (2.) I have no idea.
For (3.) I had to vserver exec su - user to enter the vserver from the
console but it gives anyone an easy access, which is not what is seeked.

Thank you for you help,
