I just installed Lenny on a G4 Mac. I installed the "ssh"

is made, but the DISPLAY variable is not being set.
Anybody know why?
No. But using ssh -v might give some clues. One extra potential
the target box does not have (the utility) xauth on it.
That was it. I did
aptitude install xauth
and everything was fine.
It looks like the xterm package needs to depend on the xauth
or at least recommend it.
What package should a bug report for this go to?
Please don't. xterm works perfectly ok without it.
Well then, please suggest a better place to send the bug report? Or
a better description of the problem...
