Sorry, I really unable to explain in english all problems I had.

I was graphically login (kde) as normal user.
I opened a filemanager as root to open the /etc/security/console.perms file.
I made the change and save file.
I logout.
I try to login as normal user but it fails, X didn't want to start and here is
the message I saw (sorry, in french) :
" Un serveur X est déjà lancé sur le visuel :0. Est-ce que je dois essayer un
autre visuel ? Si vous répondez non, j'essayerai de démarrer le szerveur
sur :0 une nouvelle fois. (Vous pouvez afficher différentes consoles en
utilisant Ctrl+Alt et une touche de fonction Fn, etc)"
One time I said yes, other time I said no, but I had the same result, unable
to start X.
If I try to login as root, I succeed.
Finally, I had to comment the permissions definitions I added and reboot.
I had also to delete /tmp/.X?-lock.
