I'm glad the problem has been resolved. I could apologize to Matt
Zimmerman but I don't understand how this relates to the xfree86
maintainer. In addition to this, it was not obvious to me until it
has been solved. I wouldn't have reported it if I knew how to solve
it. I know it's kind of a trivial thing, but I honestly hadn't noticed
the existence of /root/.profile in the base system? until now. As a
matter of fact, I'd even thought this was some kind of a feature. I wish
I had the time to know about every detail but it's not possible. Sorry
if this bug has bothered you.
And well, you're the one who's calling what I wrote "rude and silly"
so who's offensive? My only objective is to resolve whatever problem
In reporting a bug, there's always the risk of having made a mistake
and looking silly. But in many cases, out of the many valid bugs I've reported
I believe that improvements have been made. Testing is part of contribution.
Could please one of you close this bug now? :>
