Well after 1 week with gentoo i got everything running smooth and nice exept 2 things i cant seem to figure out. I ve searched read manuals, how too's etc, i guess i must be overlooking something.
Problem 1:
I amtrying to set up a firewall but doing a modprobe ip_tables gives me "unresolved symbol nf_unregister_sockopt" and "....register_sockopt"
".... insmod ....ip_tables.o failed"

Problem 2:
When trying to start app. from within konsole as root i get:
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0.0

Any help appreciated

Problem 2: I'm assuming you are logged in as a normal user, then su to root? If so, before you su -, try
Code:
xhost +localhost
su -
export DISPLAY=:0.0
Then you should be able to run x apps from a term as root.

I've been doing this by hand (setting the X up so root can launch in my user's x-space) for ages.
Where would I put the commands to do it automatically?

Thanks!

I put
Code:
xhost +localhost
in my .xsession file. It gets run everytime I log in.
