Hi All

Am  trying to make some changes on Xorg for getting indic support from
server side.
Am doing this experiments on Knoppix 5.0.1
Linux Kernel version 2.6.19

And I had successfully compiled Xorg from the tar balls .And when am
trying to start from the new x from normal user it gives error like

xf86OpenConsole: Cannot open /dev/tty0 (No such file or directory)

But entry /dev/tty0 is available in /dev/ folder
And X is running properly from the root.

So please help for solving it.
with regards

Siji Sunny
