Description Tony Kocurko 1999-06-17 10:57:33 UTC
At least /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients had 0644 permissions rather
than 0755, after I installed the xinitrc-2.4-1.noarch.rpm
upgrade as suggested on your 6.0 Errata page.

Otherwise, everything went in perfectly. You guys are great!

enlightement or KDE...  Just twm

chmod a+rx fixes the problem

fixed in xinitrc-2.4.1-1, which will be available shortly.

Reinstalling the old xinitrc-2_3.1_noarch.rpm correct the
