Hi everyone!

I made rootless Xorg by steps described on Wiki page. And that works if i start Xorg with xf86-intel-driver. But with modesetting driver, Xorg give me such errors:
Code:
[   211.402] (EE) modeset(0): drmSetMaster failed: Permission denied
[   211.402] (EE)
[   211.402] (EE) AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0

So i wonder if it possible to run Non-root Xorg with intel modesetting driver?

I'm experiencing exactly the same behaviour. I suspect that compiling X with the suid flag might work, but I haven't tried it (and don't want that anyway for obvious reasons).
