Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2003-11-26 03:48:02 EST
I'll check a fix for this into CVS so any future updates will have
it should we release future erattum for RHL 7.3 or 8.0.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2004-01-22 10:27:10 EST
Red Hat Linux 7.x and 8.0 are discontinued and no longer supported
since Dec 31, 2003, so there will not be any future updates of
XFree86 for these products, however upgrading to an existing
supported release should also solve this problem.
