I've sent two identical emails to lug and they haven't come through.
One yesterday and one this morning. I checked the archives and they
aren't there. My SENT folder says they were sent. We'll see what
happens with this one which is on a different subject that the previous two.
I've found on a SuSE v9.0 install if I su I can't run X applications.
To run them I have to login as root with sux. This is different than
RH. I'm curious if one way is more secure than the other or if it is
just a difference of philosophy between to two distros. Googling around
it looks like I could use xauth to make things RH like. Would xauth be
the preferred method? I've read the man page a couple of times but it
is not clear to me what I should do. In addition to the syntax, would I
need to run xauth as root or as a regular user?
