Bug#317622: xserver-xfree86: X uses /root/bak_XF86/XF86Config-4_0 -- seriously..
*** Please type your report below this line ***
(reportbug is currently broked, sorry for any
inconveniences this pasting may have..)
If this is the incorrect mail address I apologize, if
it would have to be resend please, please tell me and
I'll try to send it again to the more accurate
recipient. This is a real ugly bug that would
infuriate many newbies if they try, and possibly very
likely to do something like the following.. I've also
sent this to the package maintainer of gdm.
/etc/init.d/gdm without /etc/X11/XF86Config-4* or
files may run (and without -xf86config)
wtf? No kidding..
so I had to move my XF86Config-4_0 and XF86Config-4_1
/var/otherdir and solved the problem.
I marked this critical because there must be many
infuriated newbies not
knowing about lsof and their backup XF86Config-4*
files in /root being
/root/XF86Config-4_* files may be used if
/etc/X11/XF86Config-4 exist-- but if these files of
/etc/X11 don't offer
a stable configuration..
reportbug is broken when trying to send a message but
xserver-xfree86 is of the latest and I checked with a
filter to see if anyone reported something like this--
I used the filter "root".. this really is a funny
bug..never believed this could happen..
wtf?! I was surprised too...hope this gets looked
into, many newbies may
be extremely infuriarted as wtf is going on..or if its
filesystem going corrupt and X sometimes work blah
blah..thanks for any feedback..it would
greatly be appreciated..
