Default Only root user can use X, already tried fixing consol.perms

Hi, I'm having a wierd problem. I installed mandrake 9.1, installed the nvidia drivers and everything was fine. But after rebooting, I can't start X as any user other then root. It's definately a permission problem, but editing consol.perms didn't help. I've had this problem before but I couldn't remember how to fix it I'd be thankful for any help.

Umm, OK, but none of us know what to do either.

Do you have some error messages to give us some idea of where to go?

How about attaching /var/log/XFree86.0.log, as well?

Thanks.

The log doesn't help, not even running 'startx logverbose 5'. There are no errors, and the log is the same wether I startx as root or as a user, it's just that when I try to run it as a user it crashes back to the command line after displaying the nvidia logo. It has to be a permission problem somewhere.
