Description Chris Ricker 2003-08-08 18:19:21 UTC
RHL 9 and older put xterm on as /usr/X11R6/bin/xterm as part of XFree86

Upgrading from RHL 9 to severn removes that xterm and does not put a new one on
(already bugzilla'd)

Once you manually install the xterm RPM, however, it installs xterm as

This means that people upgrading from RHL 9 to severn get broken icons if
they've added xterm to their desktop / toolbar / menu / whatever

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2003-08-08 22:58:43 UTC
Yeah, I've thought about that a bit.  I think the best way to handle this would
be for me to add a symlink in the xterm package for compatibility.

For the xterm disappearing on upgrade problem, I'm going to add a dep on xterm
from the XFree86-twm package and any others that require xterm, that should
handle upgrades ok I believe.

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2003-08-13 13:09:28 UTC
The symlink is added in xterm-179-3 and xterm-179-3.EL now.

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2004-06-24 17:05:40 UTC
[mharris@laser rpmbuild]$ rpm -q xterm
[mharris@laser rpmbuild]$ rpm -ql xterm
