Description of problem:
When systemd is configured for multi-user.target and one uses startx to manually start a GUI/Desktop environment. It is found that X is started with out passing the security critical -nolisten tcp argument.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure systemd for multi-user.target instead of graphical.target
2. run startx after logining into a console tty
3. check ps ax | grep X
/usr/bin/X :0 vt1 -auth /home/user/.serverauth.XYZA
/usr/bin/X :0 vt1 -nolisten tcp -auth /home/user/.serverauth.XYZA
For now one is required to manually pass -nolisten tcp to startx as below
startx -- -nolisten tcp
Good point, I've written a patch adding "-nolisten tcp" by default when using startx this can be negated by using a new startx only -listen server option.
I'll release updated packages with this fix included shortly.
