       Xorg.wrap - Xorg	X server binary	wrapper

       The  Xorg  X server may need root rights	to function properly. To start
       the Xorg	X server with these rights your	system is using	 a  suid  root
       wrapper	installed  as  /usr/local/bin/Xorg.wrap	which will execute the
       real X server which is installed	as /usr/local/bin/Xorg.

       By default Xorg.wrap will autodetect if root rights are necessary,  and
       if  not	it  will  drop	its elevated rights before starting the	real X
       server.	By default Xorg.wrap will only	allow  executing  the  real  X
       server from login sessions on a physical	console.

       Xorg.wrap's  default  behavior  can  be	overridden  from  the /usr/lo-
       cal/etc/X11/Xwrapper.config config file.	Lines starting	with  a	 #  in
       Xwrapper.config	are considered comments	and will be ignored. Any other
       non empty lines must take the form of key = value.

       allowed_users = rootonly|console|anybody
	       Specify which users may start the X server through the wrapper.
	       Use  rootonly  to  only	allow  root, use console to only allow
	       users logged into a physical console, and use anybody to	 allow
	       anybody.	 The default is	console.

       needs_root_rights = yes|no|auto
	       Configure if the	wrapper	should drop its	elevated (root)	rights
	       before starting the X server. Use yes  to  force	 execution  as
	       root,  no  to force execution with all suid rights dropped, and
	       auto to let the wrapper auto-detect. The	default	is auto.

       When auto-detecting the wrapper will drop rights	if  kms	 graphics  are
       available  and not drop them if no kms graphics are detected. If	a sys-
       tem has multiple	graphics cards and some	are not	kms  capable  auto-de-
       tection may fail, in this case manual configuration should be used.
