Fedora Core 4 Update: xinitrc-4.0.18.1-1



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-924
2005-09-23
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : xinitrc
Version     : 4.0.18.1                      
Release     : 1                  
Summary     : The default startup script for the X Window System.
Description :
The xinitrc package contains the xinitrc file, a script which is used
to configure your X Window System session or to start a window
manager.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

The xinitrc package is a collection of startup scripts
and config files for the X Window System.

A new feature was added to the xinitrc package in FC-4
to allow 3rd party window managers to be able to drop
in their own custom startup shell scripts, which would
get autodetected and used by xinitrc/Xsession
automatically if present for a given windowmanager or
desktop environment.

This feature was unused in Fedora Core 4 itself however,
and recently a flaw was discovered in the implementation.

This update fixes this feature of the xinitrc scripts
to allow 3rd party window managers and desktop
environments to easily integrate with the X startup
process.
