Bug#257266: /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc: Don't set the option -dpi for X start

Package: xbase-clients
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-5
Severity: normal
File: /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc


the option -dpi 100 is appended while starting with xinit or startx. The
X server can itself determine how much dpi the display has. If you set
this option hard to 100 many users get the wrong resolution. Remove this
option to let X determine it itself from the edid data.

Bye, Joerg.
