There are two ways to allow XFree86 to access linear memory:
1. Disable the kernel security feature by initializing the
``securelevel'' variable to -1 in /sys/kern/kern_sysctl.c, line
205 and building a new kernel. For more informations, see the
comments in /usr/include/sys/systm.h.
there is also roland mcgrath's defeat-securelevel loadable
module that he posted here many many months ago. check the
archives. it used to work a long time ago, but it might
need porting now (i don't think so, but i haven't any idea
if it will or not).
