8.245. xorg-x11-xinit

Updated xorg-x11-xinit packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
X.Org is an open source implementation of the X Window System providing basic low-level functionality that full-fledged desktop environments such as GNOME and KDE are built on top of. The xorg-x11-xinit packages contain the X.Org X Window System xinit startup scripts.

Bug Fix

Previously, the startx script did not handle the xserverrc file properly. If the xserverrc file existed in the /etc/X11/xinit/ directory, the script failed with the following error message:
Fatal server error: Unrecognized option: /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc
With this update, the X session is started using options from the xserverrc file, and the startx script now properly handles the xserverrc file.
Users of xorg-x11-xinit are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
