I am sorry. I will not help you with problems running GUI as root. Basically you
have problems because this is not intended usage of the system. I CAN help you
run kino as a regular user though. BTW, does kino not run as a use weather or
not you have selinux enabled? If so, why did you bring it up as an argument
against selinux?

In the world of modern computing more or less anything is outdated after 6-12

I think the strace is incomplete. This write() call is trying to write to file
handle 2 and I don't see any open() call that returns 2.
