    permissions denied


    Ok i am logged in as root, and i have tried to run

    ./XF86Config, that gave me a permission denied error

    so i have to go to generic video driver,
    I get the latest Xdrivers and what not from xfree86.org, it tells me to run the Xinstall.sh

    that also gives me a permission denied error, I am logged in as root, what else could it be??

    What distro are you running? From which directory are you running ./XF86Config?

    You're not even supposed to be running ./XF86Config. XF86Config is your configuration file, not a program. What is it that you want to do?
