The problem I have is I get an error message when attempting to load up Xorg.
Failed to open /dev/io For Extended I/O(EE) No devices detected.

Also when I try to use links with the -mode 1024x768x256 option, I get
"svagalib: Cannot get I/O permissions.

Both applications do this when attempting it as root.

These two applications where working, but then this morning would not work.
